Natural Stone Patio Installation
It is hard to beat the organic look that a natural stone, flagstone, or bluestone hardscape can bring to your landscape. Natural stone patios and sidewalks have always been a popular choice in the Wheaton and Glen Ellyn area.
Natural stone pavers are a sub-set of pavers. They typically come from sedimentary rocks such as limestone and sandstone or metamorphic stone-like slate. These stones are particularly well suited for areas like Chicagoland with cold winters. Due to the process that formed them, these stones are particularly strong, more water-resistant, and also match the native landscape of Chicagoland. We differentiate flagstone or fieldstone from natural stone by considering natural stone pavers when the stone is cut into square or rectangle blocks. We save the term flagstone for stones with natural rough breaks.
The most popular choice of natural stone for patios and sidewalks is bluestone, followed closely by Fond Du Loc and Edan flagstone. We get our natural stone directly from local quarries, so we can find the right natural stone for your Wheaton and Glen Ellyn area project.
Natural stone works wonderfully in a wide range of hardscapes including; natural stone patios, natural stone driveways, natural stone walkways, and natural stone retaining walls. If you are interested in learning more about the different types of natural stone or our natural stone contractor and installation services, please contact us.

Should I use natural stone or a look-alike paver for my patio?
Choosing between natural stone quarried materials and look-alike paver materials normally comes down to the answers to two questions. 1) Do you want your patio or sidewalk to look exactly like natural stone? 2) Are you trying to save money? Look-alike pavers come very close to the natural look, but they are never quite the same. The random striations in natural stone is almost impossible to match in a manufactured product. So if you want a 100% authentic look, use a natural stone product. As for costs, natural stone patios and walks normally cost a little bit more due to the extra time it takes to install uneven and imperfect materials.
