Whether you're designing a rustic patio, a stunning modern walkway, or a winding hidden path, the devil is in the details, as they say. Natural, reclaimed stone paving materials can make all the difference in landscape design. The walk worn surfaces of antique bluestone, the bush hammered texture of granite paving, or that special horizon line on reclaimed curbing all contribute to the feeling that something is timeless and has "always been." Stone Farm scours the world to find exceptional reclaimed paving options to take your designs to the level you've always imagined.
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. Visit our project area for more examples.
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.
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.
