Our salt and pepper granite will add class and elegance to any landscape feature. Granite is a light-colored, hard stone that that forms from the slow crystallization of magma below Earth's surface. It is one of landscapers’ favorite type of rock, not only of because of its aesthetic appeal, but also because of its longevity and ability to endure Florida’s often times severe weather. At Everglades we are committed to providing top-quality granite sourced from suppliers that use environmentally conscious and sustainable harvesting methods. Choosing regionally manufactured stone not only reduces the environmental impact associated with transportation, but it can also go a long way in supporting the local economy. Everglades is owned and operated by a family with its origins in commercial agriculture that understands our environment needs to be protected.
Granite’s popularity stems largely in part of its durability and the fact that it requires little maintenance. This makes it the ideal material for high traffic areas where guests are expected to walk through often. Granite can withstand almost any type of weather including extreme heat, wind, and rain, which makes it particularly suitable for the Florida landscape. Unlike similar marble stone that is porous and more prone to stains, granite is strong enough to bear considerable weight and does not hold onto dirt after a bit of rain. The hardness of the minerals comprising most granite also makes for superior scratch resistance.
While other types of surfaces often have low abrasion resistance, which results in significant loss of polish, scratching and significant change in surface profile over time, the tightly packed mineral grains in granite will only allow the surface of the grains to wear away. You can rest easy knowing that granite will stand the test of time while remaining as great looking as the day of your purchase. Granite’s practical and decorative characteristics make it perfect for both interior and exterior applications, particularly in high traffic and work areas. The timeless appeal of the salt and pepper color will compliment any decor for years to come.
