Who said that your puppy's "business" area needs to be an eye sore? Spruce up his/her life with our Mexican Beach Pebbles. Here a proud owner created a sanctuary for her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Gabriel.
A fence was first in place for training purposes but has since been removed. Gabriel now goes directly to his "pad" without being fenced. The area is defined by Granite Cobblestones and an Irregular Bluestone Flagging pathway.

Are your hills falling? Then pick them back up with a New England Fieldstone Building Veneer retaining wall. Veneers are not only used on the exterior of residential and commercial structures but they can also be used on a masonry landscape stonewall.
These photos provided by Greenscape detail a work in progress (WIP), using our popular New England Fieldstone Square & Rectangular Building Veneer. They created a beautiful wall that is both structurally sound and visually appealing.

Let's cool off with some amazing pool pictures. Bluestone Flagging was used to create an marvelous backdrop for this pool and patio set. The New England Fieldstone Boulders and Wallstone complement the colors of the Bluestone Flagging beautifully.

Building veneer differs from thin veneer primarily in the thickness of the stone; it requires a 3- to 6-inch masonry shelf for installation. Our building veneer is available in Ledgestone, Mosaic, Round and Square/Rectangular cuts. Building veneer is great for use in exterior facades, front entrances, garden walls, custom-built homes and commercial properties such as shopping malls and office buildings.
Thin veneer is available in Ledgestone, Mosaic and Square/Rectangular cuts. It is thinner in size, ranging between 0.5 and 1.75 inches versus an average thickness of 3 to 6 inches for the building veneer. It is great to use when footings are not available. This stone can be applied directly over masonry or other surfaces. Thin veneer is an excellent choice for restoration, interior work and new construction.
Natural stone veneer gives any stone project the breathtaking look of New England architecture. Mosaic veneer consists of “broken ice” pieces of stone that create an irregular pattern closely resembling stone in its natural state. Round veneer adds old-world character to any project.
Square/Rectangular and Ledgestone cuts are fabricated in our New England facility. Mosaic pieces are cut into roughly square and rectangular shapes that give a more uniform look to your stone veneer project. Ledgestone is popular with customers looking for a wide palette of colors including gray, brown, beige, green, white, orange and black. Once Ledgestone is split, the vibrant colors are exposed for the world to appreciate.
