Natural stone makes it possible to create harmony between natural and artificial materials and is considered to be the soul of any outdoor design. No wonder it is in great demand. Natural stone is used for paving paths, decorating pools, fountains, barbeque areas, fencing, alpine slides, etc.
There are various types of natural stone. The most popular ones are:
They are very different from each other as far as their structure, texture and composition are concerned. These factors determine their wearability and resistance to frost, water and other environmental conditions. Limestone, for instance, will be a pleasure to the eye for at least a quarter of a century. Limestone uses are numerous as it is not only durable and attractive but also less expensive. The most long-lived materials are quartz and granite flagstones.
Flagstone prices vary depending, first of all, on the base material, i.e. the type of stone, thickness, shape, grade and color. The total cost of your project, let us take a natural stone patio, will also depend on its location and size. In any case, we are able to offer something that will meet your budget needs.
