Brick, bluestone, brownstone, irregular bluestone, pavers, granite and fieldstone are some of the products used to form patios, walkways and paths. Excavation of the area is the first step. Removing all the organic matter is important to prevent heaving and movement. A combination of stone dust and crushed stone will be the base for the area. The mixture is called dense grade crushed stone. A mechanical plate compactor is used to compact the dense grade stone to solidify the base for the future hardscapes. Some types of structures are dusted with sand or stone dust and others require polymetric bonding sand which is
an engineered sand containing an adhesive. We also install large fieldstone boulders to accent the landscape.
