When creating an outdoor design for a Nebraska landscape, a starting point for designers is to focus in on a particular style. This helps to narrow down which materials and aesthetic devices the design should contain. Following the trend towards simplicity, many homeowners opt to replace high maintenance materials with more flexible, durable and practical ones. Unilock offers an incredibly versatile line of concrete pavers, as well as Premium Quality Natural Stone, that will withstand the Nebraska climate without compromising on aesthetics. Here are some ideas to create a gorgeous patio design with stunning Unilock pavers:

Stonemark pavers are ideal for creating a relaxed, natural appearance, complete with the rich details and coloring of natural stone. Both Rivenstone and Yorkstone pavers are part of the Stonemark paver line.
Rivenstone’s flagstone surface texture is cast from actual natural stone, bringing the timeless beauty of flagstone to the outdoor design. Rivenstone is available in three colors, the warm, mottled brown of Canyon, the deep charcoal of Bluestone, and the light desert shade of Sahara.
Yorkstone is available in two colors, Iron River and Honey Gold. This paver brings in the charm of natural fossilized sandstone with the durability of concrete. Both pavers can be used to create patios ideally suited to an English country style landscape.
