3 Ways to Use Crushed Stone in Landscaping, New Haven, Connecticut

An affordable and versatile material, crushed stone is a popular choice for numerous types of commercial and residential projects. Although it has a wide variety of uses, one of its most common applications is in landscape design. Crushed stone can instantly transform any yard into a timeless work of art. Here are a few of the top ways to give your curb appeal a boost with this stone option.

3 Ideas for Incorporating Crushed Stone Into Your Yard

1. Patio Design 

Crushed stone is an excellent choice for patio surfaces. It is durable enough to support the heavy weight of cast iron patio furniture, outdoor kitchen appliances, and barbecues. The stone will provide your patio with a rich texture, and it’s flexible for accommodating designs with irregular, organic shapes. 

2. Paths & Walkways

In addition to being aesthetically pleasing, the material is comfortable to walk on and provides good traction for wet weather. Crushed stone walkways will also maintain its integrity for years to come, as it won’t sink into subsoil or shift into grassy borders.

3. Mulch Replacement 

Mulch nurtures the healthy growth of plants. While organic mulch is traditionally used in landscaping, it continually has to be replaced as it decomposes. Replacing the material with crushed stone is a much more cost-effective and attractive solution. The stone is also resistant to weed growth and has no problem allowing water to penetrate the soil.
