Lean and Green in Chicago!

We have all noticed the trend toward using more energy-efficient or “green” products. Being environmentally friendly has become a major concern for many homeowners and businesses. Here at Stoneyard.com we carry quality natural stones that are some of the most environmentally friendly products on the market today.


A new private residence is using our New England Ledgestone on a chimney in Chicago, Illinois, requiring more than 2,000 square feet of stone. The beautiful colors and thin cut create an old-world look that is both reminiscent and breathtaking. You can see pictures of this product in the Thin Veneer section of our design center at www.stoneyard.com.

Our New England Fieldstone Thin Veneer products are all-natural, repurposed stone. Dating back to the colonial era, farmers throughout New England ran into a problem with stones in their fields, so they stacked them into walls around their property. As a result, you will find abandoned stone walls throughout New England. Farmers are now cultivating the stone from these walls.


Once we receive the stone, it is sorted by size and quality, then cleaned, cut, split, or sawn as necessary, giving you a beautiful product to display on or in your home. All of our Thin Veneer has a small carbon footprint, making them environmentally friendly. As a homeowner or a contractor, you can feel good knowing that you are doing your part to help the environment.


New England Fieldstone Thin Veneer is available in Ledgestone, Mosaic, and Square & Rectangular. Corners are also available for all cuts, giving the look of a full stone without the added weight.
