Full thickness and gauged
Often times reclaimed stone will have a beautiful surface or shape, however, the thickness might not work for a particular application. Our gauged pavers are created by sorting material with great paving surfaces and then cutting them to a desired thickness, creating a product that is easier to install and perfect when setting in a bed of mortar.
Joint size - wider vs narrower
The size of the joint or space between each paver is also a key element of design. In designs where a tight joint is specified, sawn edges may be necessary. If a looser joint is desired, for possible planings or grass in between, a more natural edge will work and installation costs can often be less.
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). For example, 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.
