Blue Stone, bluestone, Irregular Blue Stone, Stone Masons

Landshapes employees get a jump on the season. They are preparing Irregular Blue Stone Flagging for spring projects by taking off weak and or the thin edges of the Blue Stone making them more uniform in thickness. They then will champer all edges with a masonry hammer for a more natural look. This eliminates one step in the process at the job site making laying the Blue Stone Steppers much faster.
