Also categorized as hardscape, masonry stone and tile are used to beautify what would otherwise be rather standard structures or features.  Contrary to the label “hardscape,” which simply refers to the inanimate and solid nature of the material, masonry stone and tile actually soften hard edges and mask certain structural features to help them flow with the design in the grand view of the outdoor space.  Masonry stone and tile can be used to enhance outdoor kitchens, backsplashes, fireplaces, posts, walls, stairs and much more.  Stone provides for a rough, but very elegant and natural appearance, while tile can be provided in virtually limitless color combinations and designs, which really adds a personal flair to the particular structure it is applied to.
