For over 100 years, natural flagstone has been one of the material choices available to homeowners looking to create a patio or walkway. And while irregularly shaped natural stone products like flagstone and bluestone are still timeless choices in residential landscapes, there are a lot more hardscape materials available to homeowners today.
Some of these paver alternatives offer great benefits in terms of design possibilities, installation ease, and long term performance and durability. For over 40 years we have been leading the landscape industry with outdoor living style and product technology advancements. Here, we look at a few of our latest innovations offering homeowners great alternatives to traditional flagstone.
Offering a very natural look, even timeless look, Beacon Hill Flagstone is a great choice for many different landscape settings. Ideal for pool decks, walkways, and patios alike, this paving stone comes together with 3 different sizes for creating visual interest with a historic touch. This paver’s random pattern, natural cleft texture, and soft and subtle colors make it a great alternative to natural stone like traditional flagstone.
One of the downsides homeowners often struggle with when using traditional flagstone for outdoor living spaces is flaking, cracking, and peeling of the top facing surface. More officially referred to as spalling, natural stone can in fact flake off in layers causing quite a hassle.
These and other potential problems found with traditional flagstone can be completely avoided by choosing a product in Unilock’s Select line called Richcliff. At up to 4x the strength of traditional poured concrete, homeowners can rest assured that their patios, pool decks, even driveways can be free of splitting, cracking, or color fading.
