You might remember from our earlier post where a customer of ours Scott Wilson sourced the finest Yorkshire stone and Yorkstone Flags for paving their Californian home to bring a touch of Yorkshire to the West Coast of the USA.
Well Scott has been kind enough to send over the completed pictures of his Californian paving and we think the Mexican masons have done a fantastic job.
Following up on my earlier email I thought you would appreciate seeing how we used the remainder of the Yorkstone pavers at our home project.
Happy as we were with the front walkway and the smaller pavers, we had no idea of the impact of using the larger pavers for the patio on the north side of the house. The courses ranged from 18″- 26″ and at the recommendation of a more experienced mason, we decreased the joint size slightly due to the near-perfect squareness of the pavers. The net result was a more monolithic sweep of stone that seems like it has been in place for years. We so loved the look and feel of the large pavers that we used the leftovers to extend the stone stairs at the north with in-ground courses that transition to a gravel terrace beyond.
We finished the work just in time for our son’s wedding and the guests at the reception were all praising the wonderful feel and look of the Yorkstone. I am grateful to have found your company and its fine products and wish you continued success.
With best regards,

As you can see this Californian home is the talk of the town and is definitely unique, but we are seeing more and more homes around the world using Yorkstone for their paving projects with it being so unique and weathers beautifully. You can really tell the difference when you see real natural Yorkshire stone no matter whether it’s reclaimed or new building stone.
