Hi Crab,

We supply the material. We are currently harvesting 100 year old jumbo cobblestones from the streets and alley ways of an old mill. We are also reclaiming 100 year old granite block from 3 bridges locally too.

Would like to see pictures?

Granite King.......PM me with your location if you have smaller, irregular or flat granite pieces. I like the stuff in pic 5, and may be able to use a few of those. Next month we're finishing up a pond we started this past fall. The waterfalls and ponds edge were constructed using granite boulders. Now i'm looking for smaller granite pieces to fill in between the boulders as well as pieces to fine tune the direction and flow of the falls.

Hi Crab,

The wall is only a display wall. Not a customer wall. The curb is slope curb we sell at $17.00 a linear foot. The curb is paint free! The bridge block we are selling at $1900 a tri axle load. You get approx. 100-110 sq ft of face stone. You can pick and choose your granite block. We have a pile of small to med size too. See us at www.thereedcorp.com.

Hi amscape03,

Yes we have many irregular granite pieces. Some are so unique that they can be used in a landscape area or entrance way. We have sizes for all. You may want to come to our yard to see the granite and cobblestones first hand and maybe take a sample to show your customers. Info about us and contact info @ www.thereedcorp.com.

Thanks

The nice thing about our Antique/Historical products is the are recyled. We are going "green". I think customer are in tune with that too. So keep that in mind. We are introducing antique brick paving block to the New England area too. These are great for patios, driveways, and walk ways too.

Hi Crab,

Thanks for reply. Don't be confused with slope curb and granite block. The block only is priced as 100 - 110 sq feet of face stone. The old slope curb which you would find along highways has a textured top which is the top of the curb and can be used as edging along a driveway, steps and we have a customer that is going to mosaic them flat in a patio. The flat sides are textured too. See photos. Also we have old standard curbing you can use as a steps too.
