What type of stone to choose for your fence
A fence that encloses the yard or garden is not just a functional element. You can choose grey tones with Kavala types of stone, a split face marble slab to reinforce an elegant look, a type of stone like Multicolored travertine for a more relaxed finish or Rhodos stone for a rustic, Mediterranean style. Among the top products that are fast to install and thus suited for fences are Lemone stone panel and Multicolored slate panel.
It's recommended that you use the same type of stone for the exterior walls and for the fences that encloses the garden to create a coherent aesthetic concept throughout your property. Here are some examples of natural stone fences from our own clients:
Marble looks incredible anywhere it is installed, while the split face finish adds a touch of raw beauty and highlights the dynamic of the creamy textures. Marble is stain and water-resistant with a low porous character. It is a material suited for both outdoor and indoor spaces. When used outdoor, marble can clad walls, columns, exterior fireplaces or fences, like in the above images.

Other popular materials include panel type stones (especially Lemone and Multicolored slate). They are easier to install, but as durable and water-resistant as other stones.
It's important to know that every type of stone needs to be sealed, especially if the slabs are installed outdoor. Sealing pores is a process that lets them breathe but protects them from harsh conditions that can lead to the deterioration of the stone.
