Are you looking to dramatically alter your landscape to make it more beautiful, functional and enjoyable? It’s possible with stonework. From retaining walls and fire pits to patios and garden pathways, there’s never been a better time to beautify your property. You can achieve this with a multitude of shapes, textures and styles. Not only will your property value go up, your entertainment value will too.
Here are some benefits to making stonework pieces a part of your Dallas yard.
1. Curb Appeal
Even if you’re not planning on selling in the near future, you can still increase the curb appeal of your property by adding stonework features. Embrace an environment of class, functionality and elegance with anything from stone pathways and outdoor kitchens to seating areas and water features. All of these things can add visual appeal and help with erosion at the same time, in the case of items like retaining walls, for example.
You’ll also present a tidier, more streamlined space that makes it easier to enjoy your time outdoors. Engaging in a much-needed curbside facelift is money well spent, whether you are simply looking to add to your own enjoyment of your yard, increase your equity value or to impress potential buyers.
Even if you just install one piece of strategically-placed stonework, you’re paving the way for other features to be added down the line. You can ensure longevity and uniformity to your yard when you add on other stone hardscape elements such as waterfalls, ponds and fountains. This way, you’re contributing to the evolution of your landscape for many years to come.
Also, you don’t have to break the bank, as you can start off with one simple element now, like a fire feature, and add on later when your budget allows for it. Perhaps in the future, you’d like to create a complete outdoor kitchen!
3. Weather Resistance
Stone is a great material that can stand up to Mother Nature. It’s built to last but it also happens to be resilient, durable and beautiful. It can withstand rain and intense heat, plus it’s less likely to shift with changing moisture levels. Many types of stones can even resist fading from UV rays, which is a vital consideration in sunny regions like Dallas.
Stone is a natural product, which means it’s earth-friendly and therefore offers many attractive attributes for homeowners who place a high value on the environment. Not only do you get an enduring lifecycle, you enjoy the recyclability factor as well. Put control in your own hands and embrace a more natural environment so you can better conserve resources, prevent pollution and minimize waste.
5. Cost Effective
Depending on the type of stone you choose, this material can be cost effective. Despite initial cost, though, natural stone is actually more affordable than you may think over the long term, as it’s easy to maintain and clean. It’s got fewer long-term maintenance tasks to hassle with, especially in comparison to other materials such as wood.
