Fieldstone or River Rocks – Which Works for Your Space?


Fieldstone is technically a building construction material. It is stone collected from the surface of fields where it occurs naturally. In practice, fieldstone is architectural stone used in its natural, unaltered shape. Fieldstone can be applied over man-made block for a more natural appearance, but with engineered strength. Fieldstone has also come to include use in other ways, especially in features and interiors. In these cases, the stone is often cut for the desired shape.

River Rocks – Using Mother Nature to Naturally Shape our Environment

River stone is just what it says it is. It is stone gathered from streambeds, and has been shaped by millennia of water and pressure. Like other landscaping stone at Enchanted Forest Nursery and Stone Yard, customers may purchase only what they need, and not forced into purchasing in large quantities that they just can’t use. We get weekly stone shipments and will be glad to have you pick up your materials or schedule a delivery for you. If you don’t see what you want, let us try to order it for you.
