The title image features Natural Stone.

One of the greatest joys of being a homeowner is integrating the landscape with the natural world. This can enhance your overall home in Ferndale, MD, and make your outdoor lifestyle more fulfilling. As you consider how to improve your backyard design, you may want to include natural stone in your plans.

A Variety of Applications

Both types of natural stone slabs from Unilock are suitable for use in many sorts of backyard applications. Whether you choose the stunning grayscale of Limestone natural slabs or the warming earth tones of Sandstone natural slabs, your backyard will look incredible. Both of these families of stone products can be used in patios, walkways, pool decks, steps, and stepping stone walkways throughout a landscape.

Limestone and Sandstone from Unilock are chosen for their low water absorption, which provides superior resistance to damage from freeze-thaw cycles. The stone slabs are carefully checked for structural integrity, including lack of air pockets or cracks that could absorb water.

Natural stone slabs from Unilock have an incredibly strong presence in a landscape. Since the stone slabs are chosen for flexural strength, they are meant to stand up to many decades of everyday use in pedestrian spaces.

Splendid Color Schemes

The two natural stone offerings from Unilock ensure that virtually any landscape color scheme can be enhanced. Between the grays of Limestone and the various earth tones of Sandstone, your landscape color aesthetics can be emboldened. The first step toward a beautiful color scheme is complementing the surroundings—choosing stone that harmonizes with the home as well as the landscape.

People tend to be immediately captivated by the attractive colors and textures that come with natural stone slabs from Unilock. Limestone can add a sophisticated allure to an entertainer’s dream patio with a dramatic Black River. Or you could enjoy a one-of-a-kind pool surround using Limestone in Winter Mist, or a grand entry using Limestone in Hearthstone.

Sandstone adds a friendly vibe. The soft tones of Stone Cliff Grey are a more unique choice of Sandstone, which could be an ideal stone selection for a hardscape inspired by Cape Cod architecture. Autumn Harvest around the pool could re-create the look of endless sandy beaches.


Natural Stone slabs from Unilock are carefully quarried and cut to preserve the beauty and integrity of the stone. The large format slabs—which are an important trend in modern hardscape design—let the stunning colors, patterns, and textures really shine. Larger sizes let you see the details of each stone since no slab is exactly like another. Where an individual stone is stunning on its own, the combination of many stone slabs can be breathtaking. You can be sure your outdoor living space will have a unique appearance.

Quality Construction

To get the best results from your natural stone slabs or concrete pavers that closely resemble natural stone, be sure to have them professionally put in place by a Unilock Authorized Contractor, a company that has proven expertise in working with these materials that can suggest ways to finish the look with appropriate accents and borders.
