If you’ve ever driven through a neighborhood and found yourself impressed with the beautiful stone on the front of a home, you’re certainly not alone. This is called cultured stone, and many people forget it’s a consideration when they are in the midst of planning a wonderful landscape project. This is a technique used to cover exposed concrete in the foundation, or even just to add a bit of visual interest to someone’s home. It’s a perfect addition if your new landscape design shows off a bit of the concrete on your home where old landscaping was stripped away.

What Is Cultured Stone?
Manufactured stone is another common term for cultured stone. It’s not natural stone, but it is manmade stone. This makes it more affordable, durable, and easier to install. The beauty of cultured stone is that it’s available in any design, color, shape, and style you can imagine. If we don’t have the cultured stone you want in stock, our team is happy to find what you want and get it ordered immediately so you can have the stone look you’ve always desired.
Cultured stone is made of something called a composite material. This makes it very light and nowhere near as heavy as real stone. This makes it beneficial in more ways than one.
The Benefits of Cultured Stone
We’ve discussed that it’s lighter than real stone, which is where the first benefit is. Where special permits, additional materials, and different construction are often required to handle the weight of real stone on many home surfaces, cultured stone is so light it can be applied to any wall or surface without any additional materials or permits. Weight isn’t an issue, which means our cultured stone doesn’t pose any harm to any surface.
It’s lighter, and it’s also more affordable. Because it’s much more affordable than regular stone, it’s possible you can use more of it, upgrade to the stone you want, and it’s saves you labor costs since we can install it quickly and with less mess.
Finally, you won’t need to pay additional fees or spend ample time waiting on your stone to arrive. May natural stones are found only in specific regions, which means it’s not easily accessible where you live. It’s heavy, it requires additional work, and it means waiting. Cultured stone arrives quickly, installs fast, and the finished is the perfect addtition to finish off your landscape restoration project.
