If you’ve been in the landscaping business for long, you know that often times clients will come to you with ideas that their budgets can’t handle. Maybe they want a gorgeous stone patio for entertaining. Or they are dreaming about a retaining wall for their back garden. Or perhaps they want to create wonderful meandering paths through their yard. A lot of the hardscaping ideas that people bring to their landscapers involve masonry and stone work, and while it’s a gorgeous addition to any home, it’s almost always the most expensive option.

Great Ideas for Hardscaping with Real Stone Veneer
Create a patio for entertaining.
Stone patios can be an enormous expense to a homeowner. However, they look amazing and it’s a feature that can add a lot of value to their home, not to mention create an outdoor living space they can enjoy with their friends and family. Real stone veneer can be applied onto an old concrete patio to give it a richer, more luxurious look. We offer a variety of color and pattern options to you can mimic the look of the stone that you customer wants for their patio. You may be able to stretch your clients budget further and give them a bigger patio or even include an outdoor kitchen to take their entertaining to the next level.
Give new life to old surfaces.
Sometimes the existing structures are just fine, they simply need an update. That might include benches, steps, or even sidewalks. Real stone veneer is perfect for giving structurally sound elements of the landscaping a facelift. The process is quick and much less expensive than having a nice piece built and installed out of traditional stone methods. Your clients will be amazed at how the simply application process of real stone veneer can transform those elements into something wonderful and new. This can be a terrific way to create a new look on a tight budget, since you won’t actually be installing anything new!
Build that retaining wall.
Retaining walls can be a great way to add visual interest to a property, not to mention strengthening a hillside or slope in the landscaping. They aren’t cheap to build, though, if you are using traditional methods and materials. Your clients are probably shocked to learn just how much a retaining wall can cost. With real stone veneer, though, you can include a retaining wall in their budget. Try building the retaining wall out of wood or pouring inexpensive cement. Our stone veneer can be applied directly to the surface and make it look like it’s been entirely made out of the stone of their choice. You can even use that retaining wall as the start of their new garden space!
