pavers vs bluestone for a patio
Dry Laid Bluestone
Which is better for a patio? Is there a big price difference? Which is cheaper. I am putting a patio in on Cape Cod appr 16 x 20.ANSWER
Pavers are less expensive than bluestone. Concrete pavers
are generally dry laid while bluestone
can be dry laid or set in concrete. Setting bluestone in concrete is the most expensive.
Examples are shown in the above photos.
From least expensive to most expensive.
- Pavers - dry laid - many different colors and patterns. See Paver Suppliers
- Bluestone - dry laid - these can be either regular, geometric shapes or more natural shapes. The regular, geometric shapes can be laid straight or on the diagonal. They can also be different or the same sizes.
- Bluestone - set in concrete - same options as above.
As far as which is better, it's a matter of preference. I prefer natural stone, so bluestone will give you a different look than pavers. They will both hold up well. Bluestone pieces are typically much larger than pavers, so you have less joints, which can be an advantage.
There are many types of concrete pavers and also different kinds of bluestone, regarding shapes and colors.Online Landscape Design

"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!!!"
