Using Natural Stone for inlays and accents in your Westchester, NY Patio
For some areas in the NY region, natural stone materials such as Pennsylvania Bluestone and flagstone just seem to be a perfect for residential landscapes. Westchester County, NY is just such a place with communities like Bedford Hills and Somers perfect examples. But there’s no doubt that there are some huge benefits that come from using concrete pavers—both aesthetically and functionally. With the advances in manufacturing technology and the design-forward product lines of manufactures like Unilock, the benefits of using pavers are becoming hard to ignore. But what if Westchester County homeowners could have the best of both worlds when it comes to their home’s patios, outdoor kitchens, driveways, and outdoor fireplaces? Perhaps they can.
If designed and installed by trained landscape professionals, hardscape projects that utilize both natural stone and concrete pavers are often some of the most stunning landscapes you’ll find. A great way to do bring both materials together harmoniously is by using natural stone for all the accents, inlays, and even the border courses, while using premium concrete pavers for the primary paving.
When planning and designing a Westchester, NY backyard patio for instance, consider using Unilock’s Copthorne paver—a modern, yet elegant paver featuring EnduraColor Plus—for the main patio space paired with the classic PA bluestone for an intricate rug-like inlay in the center. To carry the design style consistently around the property, Unilock’s Town Hall paver can be used for a paver driveway that is both elegant and durable. The beautiful finish of the Town Hall will echo that of the Copthorne in the patio for nice design cohesion throughout. This is, of course, just one example amongst endless design possibilities.
