The Benefits of Sandstone

Sandstone is a beautiful stone used in landscaping projects and one that not only adds real beauty to a property, but value, as well. The stone is attractive for driveways, patios, pathways and around swimming pools- basically, any exterior of the home. Its aesthetic features, its versatility and durability, make it a prime choice in landscaping stone among property owners.

A few benefits of sandstone as your choice in landscaping stone include:

• Sandstone comes in neutral tones, and the stone remains cools on the barefoot, which makes it ideal around swimming pools and walkways as it helps cool the heat. During winter, it is the opposite as sandstone radiates warmth in cold weather.

• Sandstone is a rustic stone and one that is fairly low maintenance.

• Sandstone can be sealed against the elements, allowing the stone to be resistant to corrosion and moisture.

• The stone retains its colour much longer than other landscaping stones that are continually exposed to environmental elements like the sun and changing weather conditions, as well as high traffic wear and tear.

• Should the sandstone pavers become damaged, they are fairly easy to replace

• Sandstone is available in a range of colours, allowing you to match your existing décor or have your choice of colour in décor.

• In the darker coloured sandstone like chocolate, auburn and deep brown, the stone contains a high quantity of iron oxide, allowing it to hide stains and marks.

• Light grey, cream, beige, and white sandstones will be riddled with red or purple lines that trace where water has entered the stone, making the stone quite interesting.

• The surface of pink and red sandstone has a non-slippery surface that is resistant to weathering.

• Sandstone is a stone that, when properly sealed and cared for will last a lifetime.

• Sandstone is available in a range of sizes, forms and shapes, so the stone can be utilised in any pathway design.

• Sandstone is used in both commercial and residential properties.
