Bluestone is a Natural Choice
Bluestone is one of our favorite natural stone products to use in our landscaping projects.
It’s beauty, it’s suitability for a wide variety of applications, and it’s durability are just a few reasons why.
There are many ways to incorporate bluestone into your landscaping. It can be used for walkways and paths, and for patios and stairs. It can also be used as a cap stone for stone walls and pillars. The design possibilities are endless. Your bluestone landscaping can be designed to be very informal to very formal and elegant.
For example, bluestone can be purchased in irregular shaped pieces which can be made into a patio that has an informal appearance (such as in the photo), and have irregular bluestone pieces set in an area of mulch as a loose foot path.
Or, if you love a formal look, a bluestone patio constructed out of square and rectangle pieces of bluestone make an amazing formal patio, and if you add bluestone cap stones to retaining walls and pillars, you will have an amazing polished look. Nothing beats bluestone in many peoples opinions.
The “Pro’s” of Bluestone are many. Durability to withstand our harsh winters, Unsurpassed attractiveness, and it is a “made in the USA” type of product too which is noteworthy these days.
The “Con’s” of Bluestone are obvious. Any natural material will be more expensive than a manufactured product such as a concrete paver in the instance of a patio. But, if you compare it to choosing a granite kitchen countertop to a manufactured surface, it’s a similar idea. You get what you pay for. Yes, it’s more expensive, but that’s to be expected.
