You may also be interested in a more informal walkway design that is made up of different types of stones and unique patterns that pave the way to sweeping swirls and curves. This type of design creates a much more casual look and feel to your backyard. Irregular patterns that are curved in design make for a more natural flowing look and can add the perfect bit of style to your backyard space.
Choosing the Perfect Stone
One of the most popular choices of stone for the creation and design of backyard walkways is that of slate or sandstone. Many homeowners choose limestone as well. The choice of which stone to use is dependent upon your personal taste and style. Our team of skilled designers is on hand to help with all your important decision making and stands ready to help you choose the ideal stone for you. Slate is available in a variety of colors and various textures. It not only offers a rigid formal look but is extremely durable and very aesthetically appealing. It is typically a good choice for a high trafficked area since its natural composition and texture can easily camouflage any type of wear, tear or damage.
Limestone, with its very earthy appearance, comes in all types of pastels as well as natural colors including taupe, tan, brown and gray. These colors blend beautifully and the limestone itself, can be the ideal option for pool areas that are wet and moist.
Finally, sandstone comes in a vast array of colors including, but not limited to, beige, blue, taupe, tan, red, ivory, and grey. It is comprised of a rough texture with very loose grains that result in a porous presence which allows all types of liquids to easily flow through. Sandstone is not slippery at all when it becomes wet and is very easy to maintain. Also, despite weather conditions it does not change in hardness of density.
