While Unilock’s concrete products cover a wide range of home and commercial uses, embodying the essence of natural stone combined with the strength and durability of concrete, many Overland Park, Olathe, Kansas City and Lawrence homeowners still prefer authentic natural stone. For these homeowners, we also stock a range of natural stone products, carefully selected for quality and sustainably sourced. Quarried and processed to the strict standards of the ethical trading initiative, Unilock natural stone is certified by Fairstone in ensuring that laboring laws and regulations are met to the highest of standards.
Unilock offers both limestone and sandstone pavers as popular natural stone options. Choosing which to use for your project is a choice that comes down to aesthetics, as both are high performers for use in walkways and other hardscaped surfaces.
Natural Stone from Unilock
A solid walkway design is truly the backbone of any landscape, leading the eye across the yard, connecting outdoor spaces, and providing safe, easy navigation through a natural setting. As such, Unilock’s natural stone range maintain a low water absorption rate, high freeze-thaw durability and incredible strength, making them an excellent long term investment. The naturally slip-resistant surface allows both limestone and sandstone to be safely incorporated into walkways, while the structural strength is reliable for use under heavy foot traffic. The range of shapes and sizes of both pavers ensure that as well as providing rich surface textures, the pavers can also be arranged in randomized laying patterns, contributing to an organic, naturalistic backyard aesthetic.
The fine grain and soft texture of limestone is ideal for walkways that are comfortable even beneath bare feet. With two color options, Black River and Winter Mist, Unilock’s limestone pavers can be used in the construction of a wide range of walkways styles. The Black River color option provides a deep tone that can enhance white or cream colored home exteriors. Further contrast can be added by bordering a Black River walkway with pale paving stones of a different texture such as Unilock’s sandstone in Stone Cliff Grey, or by incorporating a light jointing compound. The second color option is Winter Mist, a lighter, neutral gray, perfect for walkways cutting through lush green lawn or beset by dark green foliage and plant beds.
With a slightly larger grain and layered, sand-like feel, Unilock’s sandstone provides a pleasing texture, both visually and underfoot. The Autumn Harvest color option is ideal for creating walkways with a bright, sunny sea sand look. The gold coloring complements the azure blue of a clear pool and so is a great color option for connecting poolside spaces. The Indian Coast option with its warm brown and red veins creates stunning walkways rich in character, detail and variation. Among its many uses, Indian Coast is a top choice for welcoming front yard walkways and boosting curb appeal. Lastly, Stone Cliff Grey provides a subtle, light gray for sophisticated, elegant walkways that be used to complement a modern, cottage or traditional landscape theme.
