We carry stones for many landscaping purposes. The categories, descriptions and visuals below should assist in selecting the best products for your garden.
DRY STACK WALL STONE
Dry stack is a building method using stones without any mortar to bind them together. A well-constructed dry stone wall is made stable and artistic by the careful selection and placement of interlocking stones. Our Dry Stack varieties generally come in rough square and rectangle shapes, making for ease of stacking. These stones are generally 4″ to 10″ inches thick with flat tops and bottoms. The weight averages 100 pounds per square foot, translating to about 20 square feet of coverage per ton of stone.
STAIR TREADS / WALL CAPS
We maintain a large stock of Bluestone treads, in lengths of 4 to 7 feet and in widths ranging from 6″ to 24″. Our shop fabricates stone to customers’ specifications and templates. Unique varieties of Limestone, Sandstone and Slate are also available and can be seen at Stone Universe’s website.
STEPS AND RISERS
Natural stone steps greatly enhance a front or back yard landscape. We offer both irregular “natural” varieties as well as steps cut to specific dimensions with consistent surface finishes. Some of the varieties we carry are in the images below. See others at Stone Universe
We offer a wide selection of colors and sizes of River Rock. These stones have been smoothed by the forces of water and friction so that there are no sharp edges. River rock it is often used to give a more natural look to ponds, dry creek beds, and decorative stone gardens. They make for nice edging of pathways and garden beds.
Cobblestones are ideal as pavers for walking paths, patios or rustic driveways. They can also be attractive stones for edging a garden bed or walkway. Usually made of granite, cobblestones are cut or broken to square or rectangular shapes.
