Paul Sweeney of Cornerstone Masonry was asked by his customer to create a natural sitting area that is in harmony with the backyard while providing a comfortable place to relax and exchange conversation. Paul chose the New England Fieldstone because it blends beautifully into the natural environment. The fieldstone was installed on a concrete pad in a bed of cement with the joints mortared together. This created a circular patio that will be free of weeds, very low maintenance, and lends itself to pleasant conversation.
The fieldstone was further enhanced to show off its colors by sealing it with a premium silicone sealer that also enhanced the color of the stone. If you want the stone sealed without changing the appearance of the stone you can do this by using the same premium sealer without the color enhancer. Either product adds a barrier of protection that will help keep the stone clean and looking natural for many years to come.
