stone patio

When it comes to creating an outdoor living space, one of the biggest decisions you’ll have to make is what type of patio surface to choose. Two of the most popular options are stone and paver patios. Both have their advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to weigh your options carefully before making a decision.

Maxwell Landscaping in Maiden, NC, offers both, with professional installation and top-quality materials. Here are some facts about stone and pavers to help you choose.

Natural Stone Patios

Stone patios are a classic choice for outdoor living spaces. They have a natural, timeless look that can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any backyard. Stone is also a durable material that can withstand the elements and last for decades with proper care.

One of the biggest advantages of stone patios is their versatility. Stone comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors, so you can create a unique look that complements your home’s architecture and your personal style. You can also mix and match different types of stone to create a custom pattern or design.

Another advantage of stone patios is their low maintenance requirements. Stone is a natural material that doesn’t require sealing or regular upkeep. If a stone gets damaged or stained, it can usually be replaced without affecting the overall look of the patio.

Maxwell Landscaping often uses Tennessee Flagstone, Tennessee Fieldstone and native North Carolina stone for our custom natural stone patios.

Permeable Paver Patios

On the other hand, paver patios are a popular choice for their affordability and ease of installation. Pavers are precast blocks that come in a variety of shapes, sizes and colors. They can be arranged in a variety of patterns to create a custom look.

One of the biggest advantages of paver patios is their affordability. Pavers are less expensive than many types of stone, making them a great option for homeowners on a budget. They’re also easy to install and can be used to complete projects of every shape and size.

Another advantage of paver patios is their durability. Pavers can withstand heavy foot traffic, harsh weather conditions and other wear and tear without cracking, chipping or fading. However, paver patios do require some maintenance. The joints between the pavers can become clogged with dirt and debris over time, which can affect the drainage and stability of the patio. Pavers may also need to be re-leveled or replaced if they become damaged.

Mooresville Hardscapes

Natural stone and paver patios have their advantages and disadvantages. The best choice for your outdoor living space will depend on your personal style, budget and maintenance preferences. If you’re looking for a timeless, natural look, stone patios may be the way to go. If you’re on a budget and want a durable, easy-to-install option, paver patios may be a better choice.

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
