Quality stone masonry or stonework serves many purposes in landscaping, hardscaping and outdoor living construction. Stonework can provide a functional purpose in your landscaping and outdoor living through the creation of a pathway, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, BBQ grill enclosure or a retaining wall. Stonework can also increase curb appeal and add between 5 and 12 percent value to your Frisco, TX property.
There are a wide variety of stone masonry materials to choose from. However, deciding on the right materials is a critical decision, affecting both budget and the longevity of your project. It’s important to hire a professional landscaping company who employs a designer and/or mason-bricklayer to install stonework at your Frisco, TX property because they will be able to help you choose the right materials for your project.
Some common types of masonry materials:
- Natural Stone
- Cast Stone
- Concrete Block
Stone Borders & Retaining Walls
Stone borders or edging can be installed around a flower bed to enhance the look of your landscaping plants or to help prevent unwanted grass. Typically, stone borders or edging used for decorative purposes are installed in a dry-stack method which means there is no mortar used to bond the materials together.
A stone retaining wall bonded with mortar and sitting on a concrete footing is aesthetically pleasing as well as structurally functional. These retaining walls will help retain soil and prevent erosion in a sloped yard and possibly correct drainage problems by redirecting water. Furthermore, if installed properly, stone retaining walls with mortar and a concrete base can prevent grass from invading your flower beds.
Having a professional landscape designer assist in the stone selection process is important because they will know which products work best for each application (decorative or structural) and how to assemble them.

Stone Patios & Walkways
A stone patio can expand your usable outdoor living square footage. Imagine an outdoor living room where you can add patio furniture and relax in the outdoors most of the year thanks to our mild north Texas climate. If you enjoy entertaining friends and family outdoors, you might consider adding an outdoor, BBQ grill, refrigerator and flat-screen television to your patio space.
Stone walkways or pathways can serve as an extension of your patio, leading to other outdoor areas such as a fire pit, seating wall or garden. These pathways can also be installed as a functional passageway connecting different sections of a property to help traverse sloped and muddy side yards that seem common in many Frisco TX homes.
There are several stone masonry products to choose from when building a new patio or walkway. Our design team can help choose products that compliment your home’s exterior and function best for the space.
