One of the questions we’re frequently asked is whether you can mix and match different types of stone. Yes, you can! In the patio image above, you see flagstone on the patio, steps, and on the outdoor fireplace accent details. Stackstone adorns the vertical walls of the outdoor fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and outdoor fireplace. Look how beautifully they work in harmony with each other.
The beautiful outdoor space pictured above features an elevated deck with wide stairs leading down to the second outdoor space. The lower flagstone patio features a retaining wall which doubles as a seating wall along with a custom firepit. Notice the way several areas are available for convening. The patio is large enough to have your resident bookworm curled up on the outdoor sofa while a group enjoys evening cocktails around the outdoor fireplace.
Take a look at the flagstone patio above. Enjoy the sizes and shades of the individual flagstones. Appreciate how the artisan wove together the different natural stones with narrow veining between stones. Your Archadeck of Charlotte patio artisan works tirelessly, stone by stone, to arrange materials with such natural variation into a cohesive pattern that looks like it was made to go together.
