A beautiful garden can enhance the beauty of any home. But greenery and some colourful flowers with fresh grass are not always enough. Grass and plants often go dormant as the season changes. You need to think of a more creative solution to complement your garden on a more permanent basis.
Your choice of paving material is the most important decision in building your perfect rock garden. Whenever you are sitting in your garden your feet are the one thing that is always in contact with your garden’s surface. If you are planning to spend any money on hard landscaping in the garden then it should be something that will last for years.
Organic and natural materials are everybody’s first choice when decorating the outdoors and what could be better than a rock garden this summer. Using rocks and stones can transform your plain and boring backyard into a beautiful and relaxing oasis that can last forever.
Sandstones are the most economical of all natural stones. These come in various colours, sizes and different surface finishes. By using their sculptural beauty to create eye-catching designs, you can make your garden look as natural as possible in whatever setting you are providing. Sandstone has been used across the globe for centuries, as it is a timeless flooring material.
Sandstones are a coarse-grained sedimentary rock that consists of masses of sand deposited by moving water or by the wind. The name sandstone is given to it because the chemical constitution of sandstone is exactly the same as that of sand. Sandstone being an excellent all-around choice is one of the most popular stones for garden paving. It is easier to cut and work than granite but it is tough enough for any paving application, which helps account for its lower cost.
Sandstone is easy to come by in large quantities. The most common Sandstone colours are blue-gray and lilac-gray, but light grey, tan, soft golden cream, and orange-brown are widely available as well.
Some colour variation in every lot of sandstone should be expected, along with occasional bands or blotches of contrasting colour in each piece.
With Sandstones, you can plant your dream rock garden, with or without a water feature. These rock gardens combined with climate-appropriate plant life can transform your useless, troublesome backyard corner into a focal point.
If you choose sandstone as your paver units for your rock garden over other paver materials, it will provide you with beautiful garden paths.
