Stone is very versatile landscaping material as it not only provides a beautiful aesthetic to any outdoor landscaping design, but it’s also extremely resilient. Unlike other materials such as wood, brick, and concrete, stone holds up extremely well in all types of weather (which is important for our Chicago customer’s who have four seasons a year). Stone is also a great material for the outdoors because it’s long-lasting and will not decompose.
Another benefit of stone in any home design is that it can carry over within your interior to exterior. Many of our clients who love stone add it in their family rooms for a fireplace, bar area, or a decorative wall detail, and carry over the look to their exterior landscape to create a beautiful, cohesive look.
