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.|
