As with any project requiring planning and preparation, careful attention to details and strict adherence to prescribed installation instructions will result in finished projects of enduring beauty and the avoidance of time-consuming and potentially costly mistakes.
Each EarthStone patio stone is handcrafted and individually colored to ensure a unique and truly natural appearance throughout your project. However, uniformity has its place and it is during the installation that the uniformity of our patio stones is truly appreciated. All EarthStone patio stones measure two inches in thickness which results in level patio or walkway surfaces with minimal effort. In addition to this, the complimentary dimensions of the stones allow for near limitless design opportunities while minimizing the necessity to cut stones.
Your dream patio or walkway is only a few easy steps away. Based on the surface over which the patio is to be installed, there are two basic methods of installation. The most common installation is over a bed of sand placed on top of a prepared, compacted surface. An alternative method entails the application of EarthStone patio stones over a poured or existing concrete slab. The latter installation method typically is employed when a concrete slab exists either partially or entirely over an area to be surfaced with EarthStone patio stones. The ability to apply the stones over the existing concrete surface eliminates the need to remove the existing slab or in some cases allows for an installation of greater permanence and the ability to utilize traditional stone setting techniques utilizing mortar to set the stones and in filling the joints between stones. Both methods result in patios and walkways of incredible beauty that will be enjoyed for many years.
