For this brand new, sunken firepit and patio walkway installation, we used hand-picked, cut and flamed Pennsylvania Bluestone. For some finishing touches, we added Elfin thyme, Corsican mint, and brass buttons on the cracks to give it some character and a feeling of time.

Flamed bluestone is created by firing a flame at the natural stone causing the surface to burst and dimple. This procedure produces a rough texture and increasing the surfaces grip. Due to its texture, flamed bluestone is highly slip-resistant, making it ideal for our “wet coast” climate!
