Add Value to Your Home with Flagstone Step Treads

Few materials are as beautiful and durable for landscaping as flagstone, which is why it is such a sought-after stone for hardscapes. There are many landscaping projects that can be enhanced with flagstone, including patios, walkways and fireplaces. Another use for flagstone is step treads, which can be a stunning way to add value and beauty to your home. Here are a few ways to use flagstone for natural step treads on your property.

Hill Staircase

Do you have a slope or hill on your property? Flagstone can be used to create a staircase to make it easier to navigate sloped areas while adding a lovely touch to your landscaping. The irregular shapes and unique colors blend perfectly with your hillside, while adding a functional staircase.

Sunken Patio or Firepit

Adding a sunken patio or firepit to your backyard can transform the look and style of your landscape design. Consider using flagstone for the step treads leading down into your sunken area for a gorgeous feature. Pair it with flagstone for the retaining wall, patio or firepit for a jaw-dropping focal point to your outdoor space.

Front Steps

Want a different look for your home’s entryway than boring cement or wooden steps? Consider using flagstone for your front step treads. Your local quarry can cut flat, uniform slabs of flagstone to create unique front steps leading to your door.

Flagstone can be used in so many ways in your landscaping and will last for decades. If you are looking for an interesting material to create natural step treads, consider the benefits of flagstone. Talk to your local quarry about size, color and shape options for your next landscaping project, including outdoor staircases.
