Bluestone is a gorgeous and luxurious natural stone, and can add a timeless feel to any Worcester, MA landscape design. However, it does have its downsides. Bluestone is a quarried material which means that availability can be limited. Limited availability and a high demand can mean that it comes with a hefty price tag. This sought-after natural stone is also vulnerable to precipitation. Rain and repeated freeze-thaw cycles in the Worcester, MA, area can cause it to fade and flake over time.
