The wide range of sizes and finishes available means you can have the patio of your dreams. And why not extend your indoors to the outside by using the same floor tiles?
Give your ideas and desires depth by using blue stone for the barbeque and table as well. Blue stone is also perfect for use as furniture or for flower bed borders.

Let it rain ... The textured finishes such as EnoSkin®, Flamed Blue, Frosted or Old Cut offer extra grip and a safe passage to where you need to be. Looking for extra security? Then go for step nosings in Chiseled or Charred.
Aesthetically pleasing, your outdoor furniture lends itself perfectly to blue stone. Tables, barbeques and flower pots all pay tribute to the natural universe that surrounds you.
Garden features in blue stone can go the whole winter without a flinch. Harsh weather conditions, frost and small accidents of outdoor everyday life will have no adverse effect on the natural stone. Ask your stonemason to create you something truly unique - a table, foot-rest or a bench which will add an original decorative aspect to your outdoor environment.
Regular cleaning won’t be necessary. Weather will do most of the work for you. During spring, remove vegetation which has gathered on the stone during winter with a brush and some water mixed with bleach.
Did you spill your drink? No worries. Quite simply wipe your blue limestone with a damp cloth or with a bit of cleaning-up liquid.
Blue Limestone of Hainaut does not require any specific protection. If needed, the areas which are more exposed to marks such as tables and barbeques can be protected pre-emptively with either Litholin or Imperplex products, or you can protect the stone in the old fashioned way with Marseille soap flakes.
