Natural Stone

Stone is the number one choice for hard-wearing surfaces for many homeowners because of its durability, flexibility, natural beauty and unique appearance. Natural stone connects the home to the environment with its authenticity, rich colors and texture. Because of the huge range of natural stones available, you’re sure to find the shape, sizes, textures, colors, and patterns that suit your home and landscape; and offer a fresh appearance to both traditional and contemporary landscapes. Natural stone requires very little maintenance and can contribute to a relaxed outdoor setting, making it especially convenient for summer landscapes. Stone is a widely used statement piece and comes in a variety of popular options, including granite, flagstone, limestone, slate and quartzite.

Brick

The biggest advantage of brick is its versatility and warm, characterful appearance.  Brick can also be laid in a range of interesting, complex patterns or in simple, straight lines in keeping with the design of your home or landscape. Whether it’s brick paving or face brick, the color, texture and patterning of brick makes it an ideal complement to stone, gravel, and cobblestone. It’s also great for edging, paving or the construction of vertical elements.
