Hi Crab,

Thanks for the reply. How is the granite we sent down to you working out? Just finished our cobblestone edging project in Essex, Ma. That was a fun job. Hope all is well with your project. I will let my brother know.

Anyone have an interest in a very large quantity of New England Field Stones?

What do you have King?
Was just talking to a Guy that wanted several different application's of field stone around his property and a Mason buddy is always looking for "GOOD COLORED" stone.

Hi Big Bill,

We are working out a deal to acquire several acres of field stone with really nice age and color. Any idea how much he is looking for if price was right? Trailer load, tri axle etc.

How are you doing?

Hi 4 Seasons,

We have contractor contacts in the area that is always removing this material and replacing with new. Do you use old hardscape material yourself?

Actually yes. Most of the rock I use is supposed to be million's of year's old:drinkup: haha

But seriously, I hav'nt. The stuff you post does look great though. Hopefully I'll come across a job that could use your product. That's a pretty good system you have going on, with the contract's.

...and you are near western MA or no? I'm on the border.

Hi Hardscapers,

Happy Memorial Day. Thought I would drop a look at our latest way building with antique granite. This head wall was completed last week and will be used as a back drop for a future patio and possibly a fire pit. This the first phase of a lower wall that will tie into it and sweep around the deck. Future photo will be forthcoming.

Hello Hardscapers,

Will be starting a new granite block wall soon but thought I would show you the block we will be using for the project. This 100 year old granite block was salvaged from a local bridge by the ocean. You can still see the barnicles on it and smell the ocean:)
