4 Ways to Use Custom Engraving in Your Outdoor Space

Last updated 6 years ago

When you think about improving the look, feel, and style of your outdoor space, you may feel like your landscaping has a lot of the same style going on and you'd like to try something new.  One of the best ways to personalize your outdoor space and add a unique feel is with custom engraving. 

Here are four ways you can use custom engraving to create a more personalized and interesting outdoor space.

1. Landscaping Stones

Whether you want to label a specific area, stake ownership of your land, or commemorate a beloved pet, landscaping stones allow you to add words to your beautiful landscape design.  By engraving a landscaping stone you can dedicate a particular theme to your landscaping.

2. Mailboxes and Address Markers

When a visitor arrives at your home, the first thing they see is your mailbox and driveway entrance. In many ways your mailbox and address markers represent your property.  This is a good reason to go beyond a basic mailbox and address marker design and include engraved address stones near your driveway entrance.

3. Benches

Benches are the perfect opportunity to utilize engraving.  Not only will you, your family, and guests have a beautiful place to sit, but you'll make your own statement.  A bench engraving can declare your love of a sports team, be dedicated to your family, or provide any personal or inspirational message you want to convey.

4. Business Signs

A lot of times a traditional electric sign doesn't make the elegant statement you're looking for in your business.  Instead of a conventional sign, engraving the address or business name on a large decorative stone can be a sophisticated way to introduce visitors to your business property.

At Schroeder Materials in Worth, Illinois, we know what an engraved decorative block can do to convey your message just right.  If you're interested in learning about our engraving services or our landscape stones and landscape supplies, then call us at (708) 448-1144 today.
