An important factor to consider when incorporating stone in your property is the type of stone to use. Stone Art would always recommend using what is native to your area, as using a stone which is 'local' or 'native' to your area will help to give the appearance that your building or wall belongs in the landscape.
Stone Art can help you make an informed decision on the choice of stone to use for your building project. Be it a simple garden wall, an elaborate entrance or the stone finish to a home, the choice of stone used will have the greatest impact on the aesthetic success of your project.
