Patio Materials- How Much Do Fieldstone Patios Cost?

Part 3 of Patio Materials: FIELDSTONE- How much does a fieldstone patio cost?

Pros A fieldstone patio fits an informal situation, such as a woodland garden. It is often interplanted with ground covers for a softer look and feel. Fieldstone is a less expensive material than bluestone.
Cons Since fieldstone comes in irregular shapes and thicknesses, it is difficult to stabilize furniture on it as well as more time consuming and costly to install.
Maintenance It requires very little maintenance, but the area around it may need to be weeded more frequently than other stone patios.
Best Used For Although fieldstone patios have a very natural look and feel, due to the irregular form of the stone which causes wobbly furniture, this material is best used in its most natural form in walls.
Price On averages costs range from $18- $25 per square foot installed, but every job site is different.
