Bluestone Terrace

Bluestone Terrace

The vast majority of pools our clients build include some bluestone pavers around them. The amount can vary from a single line of pavers around the pool to large areas meant for furniture and large groups of people. Other materials include various kinds of granite, tile, and wood. There are good reasons why bluestone is so popular. It is attractive, durable, slip-resistant, and requires little or no maintenance.  We have sometimes used light-colored Chinese granite, which tends to be less hot when exposed to direct sunlight.  More grass is easy on the feet but hard to keep out of the pool.  In the end, it is all about a cool dip in the pool on a hot summer day.
