Landscaping Project Chadds Ford, PA.
Using Natural Flagstone to Accent the Landscape
This was a natural flagstone walkway and landscaping grand entrance project in Chadds Ford,PA. It was an addition to a beautiful backyard dry-laid flagstone patio we had installed two years prior.
The full color flagstone is a little more expensive but the results are unmatched by any paver manufacturer that make faux flagstone materials. The manufactured materials are close to the real thing but they have yet to produce a real life-like replication of natural stone.
In the last few years, concrete paver installations have still been a cost effective and long lasting choice, provided you choose a great landscaping contractor who knows the manufacturers products benefits and drawbacks.
Techo-Bloc is one of my favorite manufacturers because of their innovation for new products and they really listen to the contractors to hear about what customers want and don't want. They do make faux stone products that are in the same price ranges as the natural materials. The plus side is they come in colors that aren't found in local quarries.
Natural Stone Pavers are a Popular Choice
There has been a landscaping trend towards natural materials instead of concrete pavers for the walkways, patios and driveways. Clients have seen their neighbors do pavers and they seem to overpower some of the bigger homes and make the houses in the neighborhood look mostly the same. Who wants their landscaping look the same as everyone else's?
Always on Top of the Best Choices in Landscaping & Hardscaping
That's where Pro Image Landscaping is different. We look for the next big thing in landscaping and hardscaping that were not even options before to the client and present it to them. Homeowners want a landscape style that reflects themselves and not their neighbors.
Even though we decided to go with the full color flagstone, we used clay brick pavers to do the bordering and accents. They tie in together beautifully. So, needless to say, the client was very happy. Some other of our favorite paver and retaining wall block manufacturers are Techo-Bloc, CST Pavers and Belgard. The end choice is up to the customer, but presenting them with options that they never thought of or have never even seen, makes the project have some personal style.
