Stone PaversStone Pavers

When weighing the options on what material to use for your backyard project, it’s important to consider what type of function and aesthetic you are going for.

Stone pavers, such as Travertine and Marble, can be used in many different exterior areas such as patio, gazebo, pool patio and coping, walkways, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, decks, cabanas, bars, and water features.

It not only offers a luxurious design and look to your house but also adds a considerable amount of value. Most homeowners prefer natural stone due to its high-quality look and durability.

Natural Stone pavers such as marble and travertine have more natural appearance than manufactured paving, ensuring that the customer gets the most custom and desired look.

Installation time for natural stone pavers is usually less than for concrete because the stones are cut to a specific thickness and size. As a result, installation cost is generally lower than concrete.

It’s impossible to deny the lavish, classical, and rustic beauty of travertine with hints of earthy and natural beauty. Travertine offers a stunning variety of natural colors. The colors include variations of beige, brown, taupe and even a shimmering, silver grey. The stunning variety of color options prove that this stone dominates with versatility in the world of design.


On the other hand, marble is another striking outdoor material when included in a landscape. Marble is used for many purposes such as wall, floors, landscape features, outdoor kitchens, patios, walkways, sculptures, furniture and much more.

With its veining and streaks, the variety of natural marble is staggering, and most pieces are a true sight to behold where you can look at one piece of polished stone for hours and see multitudes of incredible features and textures within the one piece of stone.

Marble is one of the best choices when it comes to heat-resistance. As a bonus, this also makes it a solid choice if you’re looking for a natural stone surround for your pool or outdoor kitchen. Marble is an impressively durable material, making it resistant against scratches.

Both travertine and marble are a great alternative to bluestone due to their texture. Both are from the sandstone family; therefore, they reflect sun and do not hold in the heat, unlike bluestone.
