Do you want to know how you can use sandstone in your backyard?
Sandstone, a naturally made stone, has properties that make it ideal for everyday use both in the home and outdoors. Sandstone works well in all the rooms of the house and every corner of your outdoor landscape as it can withstand the demands of the elements and time. Here are examples of making use of sandstone in your backyard.
1. Uses of sandstone
Sandstone can also be used as counter tops for kitchens, vanities, bathrooms or floors in any part of your home. When used as tiles, it can cover a bathroom wall or be used as a backsplash in your kitchen. Flower vases and other decorative containers can be made of sandstone as well while candle holders, jewellery boxes and picture frames made of sandstone are also common.
2. Use as outdoor art work
If you are an art enthusiast then this might be for you. Sandstone also finds use in creating works of art for both inside the house and out, for example, animal figurines or statues for the backyard. It can be used to design garden balls for placement on pedestals and is also found surrounding works of natural art that are prominently displayed outdoors in gardens.
3. Use in outdoor structures
Sandstone is used in the building of homes and outdoor structures, such as gates, outdoor ovens, fireplaces, patios or porches, retaining walls and walkways. An outdoor furniture, such as garden benches or patio tables can be made of sandstone material. Sandstone is also used to make water fountains, garden planters, and troughs, as well as urns and outdoor lighting fixtures.
4. Sandstone Wall
A sandstone wall can really transform your backyard into something special and it doesn’t have to be a property dividing wall. Many sandstone walls look better as parapets. The sandstone will look even greater if you have a particularly green backyard. If your backyard is not green, then lay some grass around the sandstone wall to create a beautiful natural contrast.
Commonly used in the backyards, sandstone pavers are both elegant and inexpensive and when used in the place of outdoor tiles, these pavers can create patios, footpaths, pool areas, and many other outdoor surfaces. The beautiful colors of sandstone range from light straw to honey, which fits very well with backyards, teeming with plants and greenery.
