Ways to Use Stonework for Garden Décor

Natural stone is one of the best garden décor accessories you can get because there is so much you can do with these simple objects. Natural stone tiles, pavers, blocks, and rough chunks can be used to create all sorts of structures and designs. These natural products are also a superior garden feature because the features you create using these materials will last a long time since natural stone’s life expectancy is indefinite.

If you are looking for some way to upgrade your garden then you have come to the right place because in this article we are going to share a couple of beautiful and very creative stonework concepts for garden décor.

A Stonework Fire Pit with Natural Stone Seats

Outdoor gatherings have become quite popular these past few years and we see more and more outdoor dining rooms, kitchens, and breakfast nooks pop up in gardens all over. Stone is a great building material to use for creating a fire pit because the stone is naturally fire retardant. A gorgeous round fire pit with some natural stone benches surrounding it will give you a cosy for barbecuing marshmallows and such a feature is sure to make your garden look a lot more interesting.

Stone Paths and Walkways

There is something whimsical about a natural stone walkway. The irregular shapes of crazy stone paving are always interesting to view and you can plant beautiful foliage like succulents or ground covers between individual stones to create a very charming look.

A Natural Stone Waterfall Fountain

Water features are always a winner in gardens. There are so many different ways to use natural stone for a waterfall fountain. You can pool up large boulders and let the water run over them or get a tall and chunky stone with a hole drilled inside to allow water to graciously pour down that single positioned stone in your garden. The possibilities are just endless and any stone waterfall is bound to be a major attraction in your garden.

A Stone Sofa

Outdoor garden seating is an absolute must because it creates a cosy environment where you can sit down and read or simply relax with a glass of wine after a tough day at work. Instead of investing in garden furniture that cost a fortune and never lasts, you can build a natural stone sofa and then line the sofa with a few simple scatter cushions and a thin base mattress. If you build a big enough sofa, it can even be a cosy nap area.

An Arched Stone Bridge

Garden bridges always look charming and can enhance the look of any dull fish pond or walkway. With natural stone, you can build a gorgeous mini bridge in your front yard and give it a historic look by adding a couple of lamp posts at the start and end of your bridge. You can even consider a dry rock river underneath the stone bridge to create a dry water feature that looks great and is easy to maintain. 

A Natural Stone Staircase

This is a true winner for sloped gardens. Instead of struggling up a steep and slippery lawn, get a walkway installed and create steps along the slope. These steps can then be lined with natural stone rock to make your walkway look more like a staircase and to keep the soil in place even as water flush downhill.

There are so many wonderful ways you can use natural stone to make your garden more visually appealing. Contact Stone Edge Landscapes if you want to get your hands on some quality stone at an affordable price or to get these and many other stonework concepts installed at your home.
