Besides the obvious of providing seating space, stone benches can help to frame a patio, delineate a space, help hide unwanted views and give a feeling of permanence to the project. Custom Stonescaping can use a wide array of stone types to build your bench. We can build it to have a dry stacked stone look to match other dry stacked fieldstone walls (although mortar is cleverly used) or we can build the bench out of concrete and/or cinder block first then veneer on any natural stone of your choosing. We can cap the bench with rustic fieldstone, flagstone, or the more formal burnt flagstone with all hand chipped edges. Sometimes a combination of stone benches with quality teak wood benches or the like can look amazing. The balance of stone with man made furniture is always important. Jeff and Sean can help you with your design to determine how and where stone benches can enhance your design.
