Benefits of Choosing Flagstone for Your Hardscape Project Cumming , GA

Are you designing or remodeling your backyard space with a hardscape installation? Whether you are building a patio, walkway, steps or other hardscape, one of your primary decisions will be choosing the material it will be constructed with. While brick and pavers are popular choices for patios and steps, a leading hardscape material is flagstone. In fact, while flagstone may cost you more upfront, this natural and beautiful material can offer one of the best returns on your landscaping investment.

Here are some of the top benefits of choosing flagstone for your next outdoor project:

#1 Flagstone Offers Natural Beauty
Since flagstone is comprised of natural stones, it offers a hardscape alternative that feels more like an extension of your landscape rather than a cookie-cutter, man-made material in your backyard. Customers who appreciate a patio or walkway with a natural look and feel will often choose flagstone.

#2 Flagstone is Versatile
While flagstone is taken straight from nature, you can still customize it to fit your unique needs and style. Depending on where the stones are quarried, flagstone pavers can come in all shapes, patterns and sizes and portray rich earth tones of grey, brown, green and red. Flagstone can also be installed in a variety of ways, including mortaring them in a slab of concrete or compacted in a bed of sand for a more natural appearance.

#3 Flagstone Surfaces are Safe
Whether it is a flagstone patio, walkway or steps, you’ll appreciate that flagstone is also a hardscape material that is naturally slip-resistant and safe. This lowers the risk of injury to your family as well as your guests when entertaining.

#4 Flagstone Landscaping is Durable and Low-Maintenance
One of the most valued benefits of flagstone is its long lifespan and minimal upkeep. Compared to concrete pavers, flagstone is more durable and incurs less chips and breaks over time. A couple of power-washing sessions per year may be all that your flagstone patio needs to remain in top condition.

#5 Flagstone Hardscapes are a Timeless Trend
Unlike many materials in home renovations, flagstone never goes out of style. It offers timeless appeal that has been around for centuries.

Now that you are convinced that flagstone is the right material for your outdoor space, it is time to find a quality contractor to complete your project. Call Everlast Lawns & Landscaping for expert flagstone hardscape installation. We do patios, walkways and steps of all sizes!

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
