09 Sep #57 Bluestone Gravel Applications
Other #57 bluestone applications include walkways around homes and pathways through wooded areas or large floral gardens. Swimming-pool landscaping and pond borders are other places that #57 bluestone is often seen, and it can be used as a form of mulch around some plantings. A raised deck often has #57 bluestone gravel underneath it to maintain a clean, finished appearance.
#57 bluestone gravel is also used to cover large-expanse driving and parking areas, especially for particular design plans. A historic area with a specific need for accuracy or a period look may need this type of gravel. Blacktop would not be appropriate in every setting, especially in older historic sites. This type of gravel even has a cooler appearance in regard to heat, and we know how blacktop fares in that respect.
OTHER #57 BLUESTONE APPLICATIONS
Even a small, round circle of gravel with a couple of snazzy outdoor chairs looks like a lovely retreat and has a “cool” factor for almost any design. Large, flat, block stones in or around the gravel adds dash or sophistication for not much money.Gravel steps or tiered levels separated with large railroad ties are not so difficult to make, but get a lot of “oohs and aahs” from guests. Build this kind of path through a garden full of flowers and shrubs and rake in the kudos.
Let’s not forget about the fire pit. Surrounded by this blue gravel, it’s a safe place to have a fire and it looks like a professional job. Border that area with larger, roundish stones, and voila, it’s done. Better yet, call the landscaper and let him or her order up the gravel and create the outdoor space of your dreams. There are many 57 bluestone applications waiting for your ideas.
