The most common natural stone used for exterior hardscapes include bluestone, limestone, sandstone, slate and quartzite. We can provide other options as well.
Similar to choosing a marble countertop for your home, picking a natural stone for your hardscape finish means you are choosing an entirely unique material. The same sedimentary category of natural stone will provide similar characteristics and colors, but will vary overall, which is what makes it special. Often imitated, natural stone is impossible to duplicate with engineered materials.
The most common natural stone finishes you see are random ‘natural’ cut or ‘precut tile’ patterns. The most simple and basic use for random flagstone is to create natural or rustic pathways and patios by placing the random natural shapes directly into your existing landscape subgrade. The most popular and sought after look for natural stone hardscapes is when the stone, whether ‘natural’ cut or ‘precut tile’ is used to create a lasting beautiful and unique hardscape finish by attaching the stone to a concrete base and then grouted together, because a concrete slab is the base for your natural stone finished hardscape, you are offered great versatility in shape and design.
Natural stone finishes can be used for flatwork or on walls and columns and stairways. Natural stone finish is both classic and modern… it is timeless.
