Interestingly enough Vermont has many attention-grabbing minerals and stones available right within the borders of the State. For instance, there is talc, granite, marble and slate. In addition, one can find soapstone here as well as grossular garnet. Granted inside we are besieged by various kinds of faux stonewalls which are constructed out of polyurethane, and which can mimic or replicate real stone, and has the structural integrity that actually surpasses real rock. If you think on it, it cannot erode, peel, fade, change due to wind or cold, and it is impervious to moisture, sunlight and heat. Thus, it can be utilized for exteriors as well, but aren’t we tired of the “Disneyesque” fake walls that may look real but reveal their contents as soon as you touch them? Isn’t it time that we say that nothing but nothing beats a real stonewall!
To create the awesome beauty of a real Vermont stonewall, you will need a contractor who is capable of doing a mason’s job. That man is Jay, co/owner of Open Earth Landscaping. As a graduate of our own Vermont Technical College, he will proudly point to his diploma in Landscaping Horticulture. There he learned how to put up stonewalls in addition to working with design of all kinds.
As you look over their portfolio of their fantastic work you will see amazing stonewalls in the “hardscapes” section. There you will be absolutely awed by the fantastic stonework they’ve done and the multitude of varieties as well. One of their many specialties just happens to be stonework as well as stonewalls. When you hire Jay, a Vermont stone wall contractor, from Open Earth Landscaping, he will talk with you as to what kind of stone you are considering, and he will show you how your wall will look after it’s completed with different kinds of stones. Some wish for a more formal look, some want it to be inviting and warm, whereas some decide they want the “imposition” that a s stone wall can radiate. You will be shown choices of round stones, square stones, as well as brand new stones or old stones. Granted “old” and “new” are just ways of describing the “look” of stones, since all stones are in essence quite old. However, the weather-beaten look of some stones gives them an “old appearance” that many love.
You will also find that a stonewall may be made of different styles and sizes of rocks, to give it a more interesting appearance. Again, your Vermont stonewall contractor can give you many ideas to choose from.
