Surface types - Rustic vs refined

When considering materials for a patio application, the first question should regard functionality: What type of finished surface is required for the space? Stone Farm loosely classifies surfaces from rustic (more surface variation) to refined (more of a uniform surface).  A rustic surface might be fine around a fire pit or a walkway, but would not be suitable for a location with tables and chairs.

Shapes and Dimensions - squares and rectangles, long planks, irregular shapes

Patio stones come in a variety of shapes and sizes which can dramatically change the finished look. For reclaimed materials, Stone Farm classifies them into 3 shape types.  

Squares and Rectangles

Full thickness and gauged

When harvesting reclaimed stone, we often find material that might be thicker than required for a patio, but has a beautiful surface or shape.  Cutting a traditional patio paver to a specified thickness can add significant cost.  Our gauged pavers are created by sorting material with great paving surfaces and then cutting them to the desired thickness.  These products are easier to install and are better when setting on a mortar bed.

Joint size - wider vs narrower

The size of the joint or space between each paver should be considered as well.  If a tight joint is required, certain reclaimed products might not be suitable or will require significant effort to create that tight joint.  If a looser joint is desired, for possibly planting between, there is a wider range of products that will work and installation costs can often be less

Imports vs domestic product

Stone Farm has its roots in harvesting around New England, but we also beautiful reclaimed materials from around the world that we import.
