Decorative Stone Garden Ideas
Garden remains that space exclusively dedicated to nature, that urban oasis in which we find ourselves at the end of the day. However, when we add artificial surfaces, the garden gets strong and interesting accents, with contrasts that catch the eye more than an expanse of green. In the article below we’ll see what role decorative stone can play in the garden, from alleys that stratify the space and various other constructions meant to personalize different corners.
In the picture below, different stone surfaces bring extra freshness to the garden, giving it an air of elegance. They go very well combined with a fountain, for a perfect relaxation area.
Also, use your large stone slabs to pave the area where a table and chairs are placed on the lawn or in the picnic area. The light colored stones open up the space around them.
Go further with your imagination and create spaces of various shapes and colors using decorative stone. In this case, the garden has acquired a more dynamic look through the various stone surfaces separated by steps, highlighted by plants that flank them.
Now, if you have a fountain in the garden and creativity is one of your aces in the sleeve, than why not create an artificial water course that you will stylized by using decorative stone? What comes out is easy to see in the image below, a unique set up, to say it briefly.
Leave your mark in a garden corner where you can find the ideal comfort space. A bench in the shade of a tree, stone under your feet and plants all around – a mosaic of colors and shapes that soothes the eye. You can also use oriental-inspired screens to create that wood-stone symbiosis that is always showy.
Again, an original walkway which makes a stark contrast in the garden, with different stones and patterns that will not go unnoticed.
But sometimes simple solutions are the best and carry a more profound visual impact. An alley winding across the garden, between flower beds of various colors and other outdoor accessories, shape a picturesque image. Stones are easy to install while the final contrast is superb.
