If you have a wooden deck, you know the trouble it often presents. Every couple of years or so it needs to be sanded down and repainted or refinished to avoid splintering or wearing down. Occasionally you need to replace boards, beams or, worst case scenario, the entire deck. Keeping a deck in good condition is a tough job. However, there is a way to avoid all this trouble. Cataldo Landscaping Inc. can help install a blue stone patio in Needham MA. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider this unique and convenient alternative to a wooden porch.


Low Maintenance 

Blue stone patios are a much better option because once installed, they need little to no upkeep. Unlike wood that wears and continues to need refinishing, the blue stones are meant to remain beautiful for years with little to no fading. Additionally, there is no risk of mold or rotting like there is with a deck. Patios can withstand the harshest weather conditions and can tolerate high traffic volume, allowing your biggest backyard barbecues to go off without a hitch.


Optimizes Space

When you choose a wooden porch oftentimes it takes away usable space and makes the separation between yard and porch far more drastic. This can make both your yard and your porch seem much smaller than they may actually be. However, by choosing a blue stone patio, you are able to keep your space more open making the space seem larger and more usable! 


Budget Friendly

Although upfront cost for a blue stone patio may be more expensive than a wooden porch, you have to consider the long term cost of up-keeping the porch. With a blue stone patio you avoid potential yearly costs and labor of refinishing the wood as well as treating, removing, replacing mold or rot. Since bluestone patios don’t require any of that upkeep, they remain in peak condition for years. This makes them a far cheaper option in the long run!
