NEW PRODUCT: Portsmouth Granite Natural Thin Stone Veneer


Introducing the newest addition to the STONEYARD® New England Stone Veneer product line: Portsmouth Granite™. This New England stone was selected due to its desirable range of colors, fine grain, and harsh climate durability. It is available in four shapes: Mosaic, Square & Rectangular, Ledgestone, and Ashlar.

   

Portsmouth Granite is a fine grain granite stone with slight veining. It is a salt & pepper mix with light gray and subtle specks of black and brown. Accents of white and beige complete the color profile. This speckled gray granite is a perfect match to some of the historic architecture seen throughout New England. It is available now through our network of building and masonry supply yards throughout the USA.

Cape Cod Winstead Inn & Beach Resort with New England Stone Cladding, Retaining Walls, and Water Feature


Cape Cod is a vacation hot spot due not only to its vicinity to amazing beaches and seafood, but also because of its historic seaside charm. The Winstead Inn & Beach Resort located in Harwich, MA, is the perfect place to enjoy everything Cape Cod has to offer.



If you are lucky enough to stay in the "Commodore's Quarters" prepare to be greeted with the soothing sounds of moving water and the rich textures of historic natural stone. This charming getaway reminds you of years past with STONEYARD® Boston Blend™ Mosaic, a local natural stone that was used as cladding, on retaining walls, stair risers, and in a water feature. Corner stones were used around the top of the retaining walls and water feature to maintain the look and feel of full thickness stones.
