Stone steps add timeless elegance to your landscape. Whether it’s a single step from a walkway to an entry, or a series of steps along a hillside, natural stone creates reliable platforms and adds so much character to its surroundings. Here are two natural stone options for show-stopping steps in Cold Spring, NY.
Whether a front yard slopes to the street or a backyard features multi-level outdoor living spaces, sturdy and attractive steps to connect these areas can make more of the landscape useable. Natural stone options from Unilock are stylish and practical, and can work with any architectural style.
Premium Quality Natural Stone
Premium quality natural stone from Unilock includes limestone and sandstone. If you combine the steps with a natural stone patio or walkway, the result will be completely one-of-a-kind! These stone options are thoughtfully sourced based on beauty, but also low water absorption, freeze-thaw durability, and flexural strength to prevent splitting. And they are backed by the lifetime Unilock guarantee!
The finely grained texture of Limestone adds elegant sophistication to your landscape. Limestone is available in two shades of grey (Hearthstone and Winter Mist) as well as the dark, dramatic Black River.
Sandstone features unique and captivating textures and patterns that give your landscape rustic appeal. It is available in a soft neutral Stone Cliff Grey, as well as two richly patterned warm tones (Autumn Harvest and Indian Coast).
Complementary Wall Systems
Unilock wall systems (manufactured using stone-look concrete wall units) that work exceptionally well with both limestone and sandstone include both rustic and contemporary options. If your steps are set into a retaining wall or follow a wall down the hill, these following choices would give you the best of both worlds to create show-stopping outdoor stairs—the timeless character of natural stone along with the convenient installation of concrete.
Rivercrest Wall adds the hand-built look of stacked flagstone to retaining walls. Its natural appearance uses Reala Technology, which casts hundreds of real stone surfaces so the look is random with no pattern repeats. Rivercrest is available in Buff and Coastal Slate, for a lovely color and textural complement to both Sandstone and Limestone steps.
The Brussels Dimensional System brings a casual quality to your steps. The weathered patina would beautifully complement Sandstone or offer a dramatic contrast to the sleekness of Limestone. These wall units are available in Sandstone, New York Blend, Sierra, Limestone, and Almond Grove.
The U-Cara Multi-Face Wall System is the most versatile option if you don’t want to be limited to one style. This award-winning wall system features four different styles of wall units and many color choices: Smooth (in Opal Blend and Steel Mountain), Pitched Face (in Bavarian, Steel Mountain, and Fossil), Umbriano Mottled (in French Grey, Summer Wheat, and Winter Marvel), and Series Exposed (in Black Granite, Peppered Granite, and Onyx Black). Create a one-of-a-kind wall alongside your Limestone or Sandstone steps by mixing styles and colors.
Lineo Dimensional Stone is a simple, modern design that’s available in a four-stone random bundle. Available colors are Sierra, Midnight Charcoal, Almond Grove, and Limestone. These colors blend perfectly with either Limestone or Sandstone steps.
