Cataldo Landscape and Masonry specialize in designing custom patios for any need.  If you are considering upgrading your outdoor space this season, here are a few reasons why you should consider a bluestone patio for your Newton, MA home.


The unique coloring of bluestone offers a more elegant setting than traditional poured concrete.  The rough texture of the stone makes it ideal for pool areas as well as driveways, patios, and walkways.  Further, bluestone can be found in a variety of shapes and sizes.  Whether your ideal patio is clean and crisp, or if you prefer the natural look of raw stone, there is bluestone available for all projects.


Although the name suggests a specific color, bluestone comes in an array of colors.  Often, cool gray or blue tones are found when shopping for this stone.  However, bluestone is also found in a range of brown and red tones. Thus, bluestone pavers are the perfect choice for any project.


Many would expect an elegant item to come with a bit more requirements when it comes to care.  Bluestone is no exception to this rule.  Because of its nature, bluestone can be easily stained.  It’s imperative to immediately clean spills to avoid permanent discoloring.  Further, you would never want to use hard detergents or formulas on bluestone as it will break down the integrity of the stone.  Also, avoid items with excessive heat as they also pose a threat to the stone’s integrity.


That being said, bluestone is also extremely durable.  If sealed and maintained correctly, a bluestone patio can last a homeowner decades.  Also resistant to harsh, cold temperature changes, bluestone is perfect for the changing New England weather. Without the worry of stone replacement, homeowners can look forward to years of enjoyment with their bluestone patio.
