What Are the Benefits of Adding Stone Stairs to My Yard?
- Functionality: In many areas of Asheville, drainage and erosion control are two very important factors that play into landscaping design and choice. Stone steps and pathways are a unique and natural looking solution for backyard circulation, channeling rainwater and runoff from unwanted areas.
- Durability: Unlike steps, bridges or pathways made with other materials, stone will stand the tests of time and weather. This means your natural stone addition will reduce the need to replace materials over a longer period of time.
- Sustainability: Using stone for your landscaping needs is a sustainable choice, as the material is natural, abundant and recyclable. It has incredible longevity and will typically outlive most other materials, leaving less of an impact on the environment than the replacement of those would.
- Value: The functionality and durability of stone, coupled with its inherent beauty, makes it a valuable addition to your home. In addition, the stone naturally requires very little maintenance, making for a highly attractive feature were you ever to put your home on the market.
- Aesthetic Quality: The variable characteristics of stone adds a distinctive personality to any property. No two rocks are the same, and so, neither are any two outdoor spaces with a natural stone addition.
Should I Install a Solid Path or Stepping Path?
Choosing the correct path for your outdoor area is very important, as it serves to connect different areas of the yard both visually and physically. The successful choice will shape and define your space in the most aesthetic and functional way.
The ultimate deciding factor between the two usually comes down to personal taste. A stepping path will provide a more natural look, while a paved pathway may be best suited for a front yard, as to not take attention away from patio or garden features in the back.
The following is a list of comparison points between the two options:
- Provides a level, smooth surface for sure footing
- Low maintenance
- May create a less natural, paved look for your space and detract from surrounding features
- Able to choose from a variety of stone types and color pallets
- Can be unlevel, with wobbly stones and differing textures
- Needs occasional foundational maintenance to ensure stability of stones
- Looks natural and organic
- Allows for various color, arrangement, and design options
