Stone accents in a garden can become the focal point and a garden's defining feature. From benches, millstones, unique posts and materials you might have never thought of, Stone Farm has or can source just the right stone garden accent.
Vertical stones have been installed by man for millenniums for religious, astrological and just because they look pretty cool. In the modern garden or landscape a standing stone can act as a focal point, define the end of a wall or maybe hold a lamp. Whatever the purpose or style just the right standing stone can make a garden.
Millstones and Well Covers
Used for completely different purposes both of these old reclaimed stones are usually round in shape and can come in a variety of sizes. Millstones once turned by water power to grind grains come in a variety of shapes and sizes and often have wonderful hand carved grooves on the surface. Well covers were often more rustic as they were large flatish stones with a hole in the middle used to cover artisan wells.
Depending on the project round stones like these can be used as an accent piece laying flat in the center of a paving area or used standing up right as a nod to stone crafts of the past.
Stone - Garden Whimsy
Always being on the hunt for old and reclaimed stone, Stone Farm often comes across stone objects that might not immediately have a new use call out. Keeping an open mind as to what might fit in your garden or project might yield and unexpected use for an interesting salvaged piece of stone.
