Sandstone is a sedimentary rock made of small minerals and rock grain. It is one of the most popular – and probably the best – stones for outdoor landscaping and other outdoor garden ideas. It is durable but relatively soft. It is easy to make unique cuts and shapes on it. Sandstone landscapes can actually avoid soil erosion while providing clean beauty to such ideas as steps, tiles, sculptures, seats, retaining walls, and more. Finding sandstone and other garden rocks for sale and at wholesale prices is quite easy. You only need to call your local landscape supply (such as Labrador Landscape Supplies) to find high-quality sandstone.
When searching for quality garden rocks for sale, many professional landscapers will tell you that the best stones for landscaping and stone paving are limestone and sandstone. But these same blokes will also tell you that sandstone is better than the former. Why?
Sandstone can withstand notorious Australian weather extremes. It can withstand rain and absorbs only minimal water. Sandstone can have a guaranteed lifespan of up to 12 months under extreme weather, longer if applied with sealant and regularly cleaned.
Sandstone comes in a large selection of colours and styles. The variety gives you a wide choice for any garden design you have in mind. Do ask if rain or water will alter the colour of the stone once it is set or used as paving.
Sandstone has always been slightly uneven with a rippled texture. However, unlike limestone that becomes slippery when wet, sandstone’s unevenness makes it safe for garden pathways and patio steps due to better slip resistance. Also, even when sandstone colours are mixed up, they still look suitable for landscaping.
Sandstone can be easily cut into various sizes and shapes. The stone is versatile enough to create fantastic patio and garden pathways, garden walls, outdoor flooring, and even stepping stones.
Examples of Sandstone Landscaping
For small- or medium-sized backyards, you can create a Sandstone Garden Path as a stunning feature in your garden. You only need sandstone, yellow sand, off-white cement, decorative mulch, and coloured gravel, all available from Labrador Landscape.
If you have a larger backyard, you can create a Stacked Sandstone Wall as a low-level retaining wall. You only need loose sandstone of various sizes, sand, and cement. If your purpose for the wall is to form a block to hold soil, you can purchase soil to add to the sandstone block, instead of excavating from your garden. All these are available from Labrador Landscape.
