Walkways and Borders


An inviting entryway can make a huge difference in your home’s curb appeal. Natural stones like flagstone, sandstones, and quartzite are great to use when trying to create a walkway to your front door or through your garden. The stones are flat and break into plate-like pieces that make it easy for laying in a path. You can also add these stones as borders around a flower bed or planting group to add visual appeal to it.

Natural Stone in Flower Bed


Maybe you don’t want a fountain or statue in your flower bed, but instead, you just want a couple boulders or rocks to break things up a bit.
