If you are looking to add not only a beautiful feature to your home, but also thinking of a clever way to go green with your renovation, reclaimed cobblestone is a great material to use. In going with reclaimed materials, you are making a great eco-friendly choice that will be able to give your home a character and charm that it didn’t have before. Learn why you should beautify your home with reclaimed cobblestones below.
Where To Use Reclaimed Cobblestone
Reclaimed cobblestones can be used in a variety of areas around your home. The most obvious and probably the biggest way to show them off consists of using them to pave your driveway. Not only will they be a nice change from either concrete or asphalt, but they will also give your home a more distinctive look. Especially if you live in a housing area where many of the homes look very similar to each other, a cobblestone driveway is a great way to make your home stand out in the neighborhood.
Reclaimed cobblestone pavers can also be used to make sidewalks or even beautiful back patio areas. And if you already have concrete sidewalks that you don’t want to rip up because they are new, then edging them with cobblestones is a wonderful alternative. Not only will you be able to give your sidewalk a more interesting look, but you won’t have to rip out the existing concrete, makes the renovation both more palpable and quicker.
The same can be said about a patio. Simply putting reclaimed cobblestones around the outside perimeter is a great way to add detail to an otherwise bland space. Of course, you can always be even more creative with cobblestones. In fact, you can use them around trees to add a beautiful decorative touch, or perhaps create a beautiful raised garden in a ring around the trunk. These cobblestones are beautiful, and their usability is varied throughout your property.
