Travertines are naturally-occurring stones belonging to the family of limestones. Its chemical component is calcium carbonate, and it can be quarried in different parts of the world with the deposit. Travertines are similar in structure to normal limestone with only one difference being that limestone is solid while travertine is porous. However, the holes within travertines are sealed by carbon dioxide gas that gets trapped during the formation process. That is much of the background information, now let us get to the important bit of it which is its use in landscaping.
Travertine pavers can come in their raw honed finish or processed polished finish depending on what you want for your property. These are all great paving materials that have many benefits over other stone pavers despite their affordability. Travertine can be processed and presented in different sizes and colors.

Travertine pavers ideas
Natural stones have been always used in construction and landscape design works for their beauty and natural accent that they add to your property. Stones have been in use as long as we can remember, that is to say since the existence of mankind. Travertine stones are not new inventions either as there are some pieces of ancient architecture from across the world that was built with these materials. For instance, Romans used travertines for temple construction. The difference that exists today is that we use travertine as pavers since many other building materials have been discovered.
Travertines can be used in many ways. We have seen some people use them not only for outdoor paving but also for indoor flooring where they are also looking great and classy. The outdoor uses of Travertines include patio paving, pool decks, outdoor kitchen flooring, gazebos constructions, walls, pathways paving, driveway paving, jogging lanes, and many more commercial uses.
Travertines have found their applications in all these open areas due to their resistance to heat from the sun and also being able to resist water. They don’t absorb water when it rains, remember we said that their pores are blocked with carbon dioxide. They are also able to maintain their attractive look for a very long time with little or no maintenance.
