Some of our most popular items here at Vining Stone, Newnan’s landscape supply company, are the fieldstone and flagstone.  Typically used in hardscaping designs for walkways, patios, and more, our stones are the perfect way to create a stunning environment on any property.  But one our most frequently asked questions that we receive is: “What is the difference between the fieldstones and the flagstones?

What is fieldstone?

Basically, fieldstone are stones that have been harvested from fields where they have occurred naturally and have been weathered by the elements. They may be found directly on the ground or buried under the soil. Fieldstone is found all over and will vary in color and distinctions according to what geographical area they were found in. They continue to be sold and used in their natural form.  Fieldstone is used for all the same applications that you may find flagstone – from walls to walkways, fieldstone is great way to achieve a natural, creative look in your landscaping.

What is flagstone?

Flagstone is a stratified sedimentary stone/rock that can be split into pieces suitable for a number of landscaping and structural needs and uses.  They range in composition from sandstone, shale, limestone and more. Like fieldstone, the colors are varied due to what geographical area they were harvested from.  They range from tan, orange, brown, red, gray, green, violet, and more giving landscapers and homeowners a wide spectrum to choose from for their projects. Vining Stone carries a large assortment of Tennessee flagstone with colors ranging from the Crab Orchard blends so highly acclaimed to the beautiful blue grays common in Pennsylvania.
