Stone Patio and Step 5

Stone Patio and Step

Although one would think bluestone would be primarily blue in color it actually has a very broad range of color including greens, blues, grays, and browns.  We always select the stone pallets at out suppliers stone yard for each specific project so there is no surprises.  We were looking for a colorful stone on this project with the rich brown and rust colors running through the blues. We used all 24″wide stone set in a running bond to allow for a quicker installation time and thus save cost. The access was limited on this site so all the material came through a narrow gate on the side of the house.  The step is fieldstone with thermal bluestone treads and cap.  The natural stone has a timeless quality it working well with old and new homes alike. It will never have a ‘dated’ look. The project is off Sumner Avenue in St Paul.
