Flat Grey Stones for Dry Stone Bed

Posted by Mary_Elizabeth Connecticut (My Page) on

Hello! I am looking for stones for a dry stream bed for our client's home in Connecticut. My boss saw the larger stones in the photograph shown here, in a little garden outside an apartment house on Central Park South. She would like to get similar flat(ish), grey stones for the dry stream bed. She says that the stone is around 7" - 8" long. I would love to know where we could purchase these in the NYC, Westchester, CT, or even Long Island area. We need enough for 300 sq feet.
Thank you so much for any ideas you have.

RE: Flat Grey Stones for Dry Stone Bed

I call this type of stone river rollers, river jacks, or river stone. Normally you find them in mixed colors. Perhaps you can call some quarries and ask. It may be a good idea to know if water will ever flow in that creek bed at some point. If so, will the rocks be heavy enough to withstand the water without being dislodged ?

Construction supply places may also stock them.

Here is a link that might be useful: river jack stones
