Bluestone or paver patio?
I have the option of using 1 1/2" - 2" random patterned bluestone or pavers on a 8" bed of crushed stone. I already have about 20% of the bluestone needed from an existing patio that we pulled up for construction. The price would be the same for either one - landscape installer is cutting the price for the bluestone to that of pavers because he and the landscape designer think it would look better. I live in northern NJ. It's about 470 sf, irregular shaped.
We just built the house and we plan on staying, so I want something that will last and be low maintenance.
Any thoughts on either material?
