If you’d like to know what bluestone patio costs per square foot are, find out below. But that’s not all! I also show you what one of my patio designs actually costs with a seat wall and landing. You can remove each of the extra features (wall and porch) and see what the patio alone would be.
Bluestone patio with landing and steps - what does it cost?
This patio is dry laid bluestone. It’s a geometric design
with a twist…one section has an arc as you will see in a photo below. There is
a seat wall near this area made of natural dry stacked stone with a bluestone
cap on top. This creates a smooth sitting area.
Nice, but patio costs can be reduced by having a smaller patio.
Wide landing and two steps create a nice transition.
The level of the kitchen (through the double doors ) is
higher than the ground, so a couple of steps were needed, along with a
A seat wall is a nice feature, but can be optional since it adds onto the costs.
I am using $20 per square foot, although it might me a bit less or more in your area.
The patio is a little under 500 square feet. (The landing area is additional and priced separately.)
Total Cost $16480
The landing includes natural stone risers, bluestone treads and stone side
walls for the landing.
As you can see, the seat wall adds on quite a bit. In addition, if you don’t need a landing, you will save money there.
Another cost saving option? Make the patio smaller. You can see on my page where I show the costs for a simple patio that your patio does not have to be this large at all. The patio here is more than half the cost, yet still accommodates quite a bit of furniture.
