Many homeowners here in the mountains of Colorado opt to include some type of outdoor living space in the plans for their home. Enjoying the cool mountain breezes while spending time with family and friends is a favorite activity among many residents here in our region. For us, it is just as important to include eco-friendly materials in outdoor living spaces as it is within the homes we build. Recently, Elle Décor featured a short article on the top trends for eco-friendly flooring materials for outdoor living spaces. If you’re thinking about adding an outdoor living space to your home, you may want to consider using some of these materials for your flooring.

  • Gravel – Gravel has been a staple product for landscapers for many years, and it’s expected to make a big comeback this year. Crushed stone is suggested over pea gravel, as pea gravel is a nonrenewable resource.
  • Pavers – Pavers made of local stone enhance the look of the native plants in your landscape, plus it’s better for the environment than a stone imported from far away.
  • Decomposed Granite – Decomposed granite is very much like sand and is a slight shade of pink, which Elle Décor suggests would be a great accent for outdoor dining rooms.

It's just as important to include eco-friendly materials in your outdoor living spaces as it is to include them inside your home.
