Stamped concrete and brick pavers do an excellent job of replicating the look of other materials, but sometimes nothing but natural stone will do. Natural stone gives a distinctive look to any hardscape, and uncut or unformed stones make wonderful, organic borders for flower beds and other landscape features. There can be as much variation in the color and texture of stone as there is in concrete, so there’s no limit to what you can design using this versatile material.
Stone varieties like granite and fieldstone have many unique features that concrete doesn’t have. However, the level of variation between stone blocks makes their surfaces more uneven than manufactured concrete pavers or blocks. Keep this in mind when considering natural stone as a material for patios and driveways.
Granite, bluestone, and fieldstone are the types of natural stone we use most commonly in our projects, but we also stock these other varieties:
- Wall stone
- Quarry stone
