Colonial Gray River Rock

The main feature of this outdoor patio idea is the backyard-facing natural stone facade of Colonial Gray River Rock veneer stone in full width stone veneer or thin stone cladding. This particular covered patio features a gorgeous indoor-outdoor wood ceiling, a beautiful paver pattern hardscape design, and expansive windows trimmed in black for a rustic modern farmhouse look made complete by Buechel Stone’s Colonial Gray River Rock stone veneer.

Ashlar describes the finest masonry units of dressed and cut stones that are worked until squared, with real stone pieces ranging in heights from 1/2″ to 8″ and lengths from 6″ up to 24″ for both full and thin veneer stone (rounded from tumbling). Its natural stone colors range from grays to charcoals with occasional mauves; and whites from tumbling are also present.

A finished dry stacked stone or mortared stone masonry grout installation in the Ashlar stone veneer pattern is sometimes referred to as a 2:1 pattern. Although traditional, it is nicely complementary to a variety of architecture and design elements. Here it’s used as an exterior stone veneer for a stunning outdoor backyard patio facades in combination with patterned pavers and  wood ceilings; but this natural stone product adapts just as well with stately front porch patio entrances and as an interior stone veneer in a bathroom for a tub surround with arched stone fireplace; and more!
