2 Outdoor Renovations Showcasing the Impact of Natural Stone Veneer

Since 2020 we’ve been following the increase in home improvement projects with homeowners putting an emphasis on updating their outdoor living spaces. Patios and outdoor kitchens became necessary gathering and entertainment spaces at a time defined by social distancing, working from home, and maximizing space for multiple purposes. The last two years have redefined what is important to homeowners, and these new priorities are influencing what materials they choose for their projects. Incorporating natural stone veneer into a variety of designs has many advantages, including creating a lasting impact on your outdoor space. 

Old New England Rounds Walls and PillarsOutdoor Living Space Incorporating Materials Provided by Tri-City Masonry

Outdoor entertainment and special features are high on the list of demands for new home builds and renovations, and this project achieves them all. This New Hampshire backyard was transformed into a personal paradise, complete with a pool, gazebo, waterfalls, and dive rocks, with the addition of Old New England Rounds to accent the stone walls and pillars. The natural stone materials and color palette create a soothing atmosphere ideal for entertaining and leisure. 

Thanks to the craftsmanship of Cornerstone Hardscape and Masonry, this space is ready for epic pool parties and casual get-togethers with family and friends, and it will also be a perfect base to work from home while enjoying the view and peaceful atmosphere. The covered space extends the use of the outdoor living space through the seasons and when the weather is less than ideal.

This patio project (above) in Massachusetts is another great example of the impact stone veneer can make. The double-sided outdoor kitchen designed by Beautiful Horizon covers all the bases for outdoor entertainment with plenty of space for family and friends! The design features a modern look incorporating the Greenwich Blue Collection in the Roughly Square and Rectangle pattern, and the same material is used in the design of the step risers (to enter the home.) Tying in the different features in the design adds to the visual appeal, and the low maintenance and durability in different seasons and weather conditions make it a worthy investment for an outdoor living project.

With more time being spent at home, more planning and consideration goes into home improvement projects. Choosing the building materials that best fit your needs has an important role in the project's outcome. The advantages of natural stone, along with the designer's insight and the mason's technique, ensure that every project is catered to individual needs.
