There are multiple ways to infuse natural stone throughout your landscape design to enhance your property.

A beautiful landscape is more than flowers, trees, or lush foliage. Some of the most striking elements of a landscape aren’t living plants at all! Consider a bubbling water feature, a cozy fire pit—and, of course, stone. Natural stone can serve many functions, from the purely aesthetic to the completely essential. There are multiple ways to infuse natural stone throughout your landscape design to enhance your property. Keep reading to learn more.

Natural Stone Patios

You can install natural stone around patios and outdoor pools according to your preference. A natural stone patio is smooth to walk on, withstands high-traffic areas, and absorbs moisture. These stones come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, so our skilled designers can build your natural stone patio with your personal flair. With these stunning materials, you can design a beautiful patio space for barbecuing or an outdoor sitting area customized to your yard.

Walkways, Pathways & Steps

What feels more natural than a stepping stone path or stone steps leading to your front door? Depending on your desired look, you can choose the sizes, shapes, and colors to suit your style and complement your home’s architecture. If your walkway or path is the primary means to get to and from key areas, choose regular stones that can be fitted closely together to prevent them from shifting. For meandering paths through a garden, incorporate large, round, irregular stepping stones reminiscent of childhood fairytales—these benefit from being more randomly placed for a more casual feel.

Natural Stone Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are a fantastic addition to outdoor areas. Let the professionals at Carroll Landscaping install a retaining wall that matches other natural stone elements in your yard. In backyards with paths and steps made from natural stone, a wall made from the same materials adds a more cohesive, natural look to your landscape design. The rocks are easy to stack, allowing you to create unique natural patterns that add texture and dimension to your space. More importantly, retaining walls do the critical job of keeping soil exactly where it is supposed to be, preventing erosion and saving you money.
