Using Natural Sandstone in Various Ways

Dec 4, 2007
Natural sandstone brings together many elements of our earth such as rivers, oceans, and sand. Natural sandstone can be different colors depending on what elements it is made up of.

Sandstone with iron content will likely be reddish brown in color. Sandstone made with carbon content can be black or dark grey in color. Siliceous sandstones will be white. Argillaceous sandstone comes in earth tones like sand or buff colors. Sandstones come from the ocean bottoms, river bottoms, and beaches and are sedimentary rocks.

Using natural sandstone is a popular choice for outdoor projects. Its soft look gives a serene relaxed feeling to outdoor spaces. Many people like to use it for their pool surrounds and other areas of the patio. Paths and walkways are so inviting when they are laid using natural sandstone.

Wall features can be given a unique look that blend well with the rest of your outdoor space. They look like they belong there instead of becoming just another man made looking structure. Sandstone will provide a timeless style that will look just as good in 10 or 20 years as it does when you first have it installed on your property.

Since natural sandstones come in several color choices, be sure to pick the one that will best suit the color and style of the rest of your home. Shop around and get different pricing from different businesses. You can find better prices at some places than at others.

Some businesses that sell natural stone will offer installation services too. You may get a discount on either the stone or installation if you use the same business for both. Natural stone products and their installation can be expensive so it will pay in the end to shop around.

Sandstone products are very durable and can be easy to install. You can significantly reduce the cost of using natural stones like sandstone if you do much of the work yourself. If you are the outdoor type and like do it yourself projects, this is something you will probably enjoy doing. Educate yourself on any preparatory work that will need to done for laying natural sandstone in your yard or patio.

Even if you hire a professional to do the actual laying of your natural sandstone, getting the area prepared can save a lot of money. When your project is finished you will be amazed at how beautiful natural sandstone is and at how much value outdoor projects like these will add to the value of your home.
