The Hartmann’s wanted more of a linear appearance in their stonework and worked together with Colonial to come up with the blend below, so it would be exactly what they wanted. They are so happy with the end result.
The Tumbled Harvest Gold Hartmann’s Blend consisted of:
7 1/2% 3 – 5″ Height Peterborough Fence Wall
7 1/2% 3 – 7″ Height Eden Mills Rustic Ranch
10% more lengthy Harvest Gold Random (laid horizontally)
10% 1 – 3″ Low Rise Ledgerock Harvest Gold
10% 3 -5″ Low Rise Ledgerock Harvest Gold
25% 3 – 5″ Low Rise Squared Harvest Gold
30% 6 – 14″ Height Squared Harvest Gold
The picture below is a work in progress picture taken during installation. The Hartmanns are very happy with the help that they received at Colonial Brick & Stone Inc. to achieve the color blend, style and texture they desired.
Colonial Brick & Stone Inc. assisted the Hartmanns to understand what they really wanted, and helped them explain to the installers how the stone should be laid to receive the design and appearance desired. The Hartmanns were very happy to receive this additional assistance, as Mr. Wagler from Colonial spared them from having unnecessary problems.
Mr. Wagler firmly believes in listening attentively and getting a good understanding of what the customer wants, and then endeavoring to transfer that information to everyone involved, including the mason. He says that it works well when everyone understands the customer’s desires, and that teams work better than individuals.
When we asked the owners of this beautiful home if they were pleased with the outcome, this is how they responded,
” We are thrilled with it! Everyone loves the stone and asks where it came from so it is a big success. Once the landscaping is all done in the spring we will take some more professional photos and send them to you to use for your advertising. If you are ever in the area please drop in on us.”
The picture below is the same stone as the Hartmann Blend, but looks totally different with wider and dark mortar joints, and many of the random pieces standing upright instead of being laid horizontally. With Natural Stone, you can make large alterations with minor changes, to make the project special to you.
