Natural Stone Patios vs. Pavers—What’s Right for You?
There are many reasons to choose a natural stone patio over traditional concrete pavers. First and foremost, natural stone is a highly sustainable material. It’s also incredibly durable and can last for decades with very little maintenance. Additionally, natural stone patios offer a unique look that you simply can’t get with other materials.
When it comes to design, there are many different types of stones to choose from, each with its own unique characteristics. You may want to consider the color, texture, and size of the stones when making your decision.

Types of Natural Stone Used in Our Custom Patios
At Valley Deck & Patio, we use a variety of natural stones in our custom patios. We have a wide selection to choose from, so you’re sure to find the perfect stone for your project. Our most popular stones include:
- Bluestone – Bluestone is a type of sedimentary rock that comes in many different colors, including blue, green, and gray. It’s often used for walkways and patios because of its durability and slip-resistant texture.
- Flagstone – Flagstone is a type of metamorphic rock that can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes. It has a unique, rustic look that makes it a popular choice for patio paving.
- Travertine – Travertine is a type of limestone that is often used for flooring and countertops. It has a beautiful, unique texture and comes in many different colors.
The type of natural stone that will work best for your backyard getaway will depend on the look you’re going for as well as the other style elements you’re working with. We might recommend a mix of materials for a farmhouse style or a more modern look, such as flagstone with pavers in certain areas.
