Owning a home is a big investment and, these days, a big part of that investment can involve renovating the house. One particular home improvement project that is becoming increasingly more popular is sprucing up your outdoor space. This is also something many new home buyers are looking for in a potential home, so builders should consider creating a patio space as part of the original design. Most Greater Toronto Area (GTA) homeowners now want to maximize their home value and improve their quality of life by creating an outdoor living space rather than just having a patch of grass and some shrubbery. And what's a very important part of that outdoor living space project, whether you're a homeowner, builder, or landscape designer? Deciding what type of patio stone to use. FSI Landscape Supply can help you with that.
Your Patio Stone Options
Patio stones provide the basis for the entire look of your outdoor space, so the type you select is quite important. Let's look at some of your options:
Patio slabs are a utilitarian and cost-effective option. These simple and straightforward concrete slabs are easy to install and come in several sizes. They don't look fancy, but they make for a fine base for an area where you wish to have a patio table and chairs and a barbecue.
Interlocking stone is a popular patio stone option, giving that solid brick look that goes well with a traditional home. These durable brick pavers, which usually come in red or grey, can be cut to fit, so you can use them as a patio in an irregularly sized yard, as a pathway, or around a pool. In addition to acting as the patio floor, interlocking stone can also be used to create other landscape features in the patio area, such as a fireplace or outdoor kitchen, giving the yard area a luxury feel.
If you'd like to bring in the natural beauty of our province into the yard you're designing, meshing the useful areas with the decorative aspect, natural stone is the way to go for the patio. You can create a seamless flow between the patio stones, any surrounding greenery, and water features if you decide to incorporate them or achieve a one-of-a-kind look using different textures and irregular shapes and sizes–with random flagstone, for example. At FSI Landscape Supply, we offer a wide selection of natural stone to meet your patio space design needs, including skidded armour stone, highland random slab, skidded brown elephant, skidded white elephant, Georgian weathered waterfall, Wiarton waterfall, large granite boulders, random flagstone, pink granite chunks, black granite chunks, mica chunks, brown armour stone, elite blue granite waterfall, and natural stone steps.
