Stone Patios, Walkways & Steps
Most hardscape designs include stone patios and walkways. We walk homeowners through two application choices for stone patios. One patio is set on a six inch crushed gravel base and the joints are set in palmeric sand. The second application is a high end application involving a concrete footer and the joints are set in mortar. The choice in application also depends on whether the homeowner wants an irregular design or something more consistent. Like all other hardscape additions, you want the look of the patio, walkway and steps to suit your home’s architectural style. The clean lines of modular or geometric shaped stone matches a more contemporary styled home, ashlar looks more natural with traditional as well as period homes. If you live in a country or lodge home, irregular stone creates a more rustic, “always been there” look.
