Stone pathways are a great and simple way to add a touch of charm and character to any landscape design. At Jovak Landscape and Design, we offer a selection of landscaping services, including landscaping installation for stone pathways. If you are thinking about installing a stone pathway in your backyard, our expert landscaping team can help.
Some of the most popular materials used to build stone pathways include:
Brick is a highly durable, natural stone is a great way to produce a classic and timeless look. This type of stone material also maintains its colour over time and is able to shift slightly without cracking, making it a long-lasting material that requires minimal maintenance. Brick can also be laid in a variety of different patterns, from herringbone to basket-weave and everything in between.
Pavers are an extremely versatile type of stone that is both weather and slip resistant, making them ideal for high-traffic areas. This type of stone material comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures, making it easy to find the right fit for your landscaping needs. Just like with brick, pavers can be placed in a range of different patterns, such as running, laying, circular, or herringbone.
While named bluestone, this type of stone material actually comes in a variety of different colours, from brown to green tones, that add a unique charm to any outdoor space. It also comes in a selection of different shapes and sizes and is usually placed in an irregular or broken looking pattern. Bluestone is a naturally porous stone that needs to be sealed regularly to maintain its natural colours and beauty.
If you are looking to keep the heat of your backyard space this summer, limestone might be the perfect fit for you. This type of stone material comes in a range of shapes and light colours that are perfect for deflecting heat. Just like with bluestone, limestone is porous and needs to be sealed in order to maintain its colour and texture.
Flagstone is a durable and easy to care for material that can provide a luxurious look to any outdoor space. This type of stone material is also less slippery when wet than other types of stones, making it the ideal choice for stone pathways near water features or pools. Flagstone is also available in a range of different colours including rose, reddish-brown, chocolate, and tan.
