Charlotte, North Carolina (PRWEB) May 19, 2014
A new report released this past month finds that stone patios are a hot item this spring. Houzz, a leader in home renovation and design, released a study this past month of 4500 users in the midst of or planning a landscape update. 83% of all surveyed say they had plans to add a patio or deck in the upcoming months. Masters Stone Group, a stone paver and masonry specialist out of Charlotte, NC, backs this report, stating it has seen an upward trend in stone patios the past 2-3 months around the Charlotte, North Carolina area.
“Most of my clients are using their stone patio spaces for backyard grills, parties, or leisure activities,” says Mark Correll, Masters Stone Group President. “I’ve seen a great demand in the Charlotte, NC area for stone patios --they’re beautiful, durable and low maintenance.”
According to the Houzz study, 53% of the those surveyed stated they would be using their backyard additions for entertainment purposes. Stone patios, in particular, have grown in popularity due to a recent demand for outdoor living areas. Such areas include outdoor kitchens, stone fireplaces, and exterior stone accents. “Stone patios are a good foundation for almost all outdoor living or entertainment areas,” says Correll. “Many of our clients begin with something simple like a stone patio, then expand their designs to outdoor living spaces. Stone patios are a great way to add value to your home.”
