Bluestone Walkway Concrete or Dry Laid
by monica haskin
My question is about dry laid and wet laid bluestone walkways.
We are getting estimates and have been told that having cement under the bluestone will prevent stones from shifting. Is this true? Thanks.
Yes, but if the dry laid bluestones are set properly, they should not shift.
Above is a picture of a drylaid bluestone walk.
Please take a look at my page about Bluestone Patios
Concrete joints can crack from freeze thaw conditions, especially in New York. You can repair the cracks, but it will never look the same because the new concrete rarely matches the old.
Dry laid stone is also much less expensive. Just as a note, I hardly ever specify bluestone to be set in concrete due to the above reasons.
"Susan, what a pleasure it was to work with you. You made me feel like I was your only client - responding late at night and always so quickly! Your design is amazing and we only hope we can do justice to it when we plant . You have such fantastic ideas and you are so open to suggestions and changes. Loved working with you - now if you could only come to Canada and plant it !!! "
