Stone features can enhance your enjoyment spent outdoors. With the late-summer season comes the urge to find time by the pool and grilling on the patio with friends and family. Your pool and patio areas can be more exciting with added luxuries that don’t have to be found only at resorts. In fact, more people are learning to incorporate resort luxuries into their own outdoor spaces.
Here are some ideas for adding stone features that can make your outdoor space more enjoyable.
Expand your patio for more entertainment
Get ready for entertaining outside. If you have a small concrete patio space, you have limitations and your area might not be that appealing. You’ll be hip when you replace the concrete pad with a new surface of flagstone. This is the perfect surface material to bring beauty and function to your space. The various colors and patterns provide options that are appealing. Our Sequatchie Gray and Smokey Mountain flagstones are two popular varieties we offer. The luxury of a flagstone patio area can give you renewed energy to decorate with tables and chairs that are perfect for entertaining.
Build a beautiful waterfall
There is something exotic about having a waterfall in your backyard! You can incorporate a gorgeous stone veneer feature with your existing pool or design a pond with a waterfall in your garden. There are an amazing number of stone veneer products to choose from that will make your waterfall unique. Some of our favorite stone veneers for waterfalls are Thick Veneer Fieldstone or Riverrock.
Create a walkway to your patio
Sometimes you might prefer that your guests use a side entrance compared to going through your home when you entertain in the backyard. Entice your guests toward the side entrance with a beautiful walkway of flagstone or stepping stones. Mix in some gravel between the flagstone or create an edging with stacked drystone to add more detail. If you have a slope, think of the beauty that our Bluestone Cut Pattern would look with bluestone steppers for an elegant entrance. Your walkway doesn’t have to be a straight route. Planting shrubs and flowers along an indirect route provides interest that helps guests enjoy the walk.
Add in a cozy fireplace or fire pit
Imagine your family and friends hanging out together by a warm fireplace or fire pit in your backyard. At Fieldstone Center, we have premade fire pit kits that are easy to install. If you prefer, choose from our variety of stone veneer products to build a unique fire pit or fireplace that will soon be a favorite area for entertaining. Some stone veneer products that would look great in a fireplace are Ashlar Square Fieldstone and Elberton Granite Rubble.
