The Grindstone Transition

stone transition from driveway to path

Cobblestones, a grindstone and a large sun ray design cut from a single slab of flagstone combine to create a transition at our latest project in Asheville, North Carolina.

We have been installing a cobblestone driveway that ends at a path that leads to the front door and formal entrance of this magnificent stone house. I cut a large sun ray design from a single slab of flagstone. The homeowner found the grindstone at an antique shop years ago. The cobbles are from Tennessee and have been tumbled, to soften the edges and give them a time worn look. This project in the Haw Creek neighborhood in Asheville, where we worked last fall, using mill stones and cobbles as design elements to complete a drainage system on the back patio.
