Popular Stone Types

Our most popular stone type is the New England Fieldstone. This beautiful and timeless stone will compliment any landscape and is also the most economical option. New England Fieldstone ranges greatly in size and color, making it a very versatile stone material.

New England Round Fieldstone

A thinner, less rounded New England fieldstone is used to build flat or stacked walls which are typically comprised of varying thicknesses of fieldstone and give a truly unique rustic look to a landscape. The thickness and variation of the stone are customized for each project where we take into consideration the overall landscape as well as wall height to stone size proportions when designing the walls.

Another popular stone type in New England is a quarry stone called Corinthian Granite. The actual name may vary in different parts of the country and among different stone suppliers, but it is an elegant, enduring, medium to coarse grained granite featuring a mixture of mostly Hudson river blue with green, black, pink, brown, burgundy and white.

American Granite (once again, the name may vary) stone is a medium to coarse-grain, weathered granite featuring brown and earth tone surface colors with hand-split faces showing a blend of blue, burgundy, pink, green, brown, black and white.  This stone type is reminiscent of European architecture with its antique look. Given the rectangular or squared appearance of American Granite stone, this stone type is also best utilized in walls that have level or stepped tops and an exposed mortar style finish is typically recommended.

Another fieldstone that looks similar to New England stone is Pennsylvania Fieldstone. As the name suggests, this stone comes from Pennsylvania fields and is a a hearty, weathered stone showing deep shades of brown and amber and often featuring random speckling and striations.
