Barnstone Company Manufactures Realistic, Lightweight, Durable and Easy to Install Foundation Stones.
Barnstone Company produces a unique manufactured hardscape material that is modeled on the natural appearance of 150+ year old building foundation stones. Traditional barn stones were used in the 1800’s as structural foundations for barns, stables and family homes. Until now, these charming hand-hewn stones were born only from the labors of a few dedicated Pennsylvania craftsmen.
Today, barn stones are again available for use as a decorative hardscaping product for use in gardens, walkways, patios and much more. Each manufactured Barnstone presents its own natural characteristics and is designed to be lightweight, durable and easy to install in efficient stacking patterns. These realistic reproductions provide an inexpensive alternative to hard-to-find traditional cut and aged stones from centuries past.
Whether you’re building a raised garden bed, a freestanding accent wall or a terraced retaining wall structure, Barnstones work well in any setting where naturally appearing landscapes with stone walls are desired. Manufactured Barnstone is ideal for both private landscapes and public spaces. Unlike unwieldy and difficult-to-find historic foundation stones, realistic precast concrete Barnstones are readily available in standard sizes with plans for easy stacking configurations.
Our precast materials remove the expense of product waste and minimize wall installation by as much as half the work involved with natural stone. Barnstone’s proprietary hollow design lessens the stone’s weight while maintaining durability. This standardized product construction allows easy stacking in multiple variations and takes the guesswork out of constructing a complex wall.
Barnstones are manufactured with a mixture of cement and lightweight sand/gravel. The interiors of the product molds were styled from the actual texture of real foundation stones. Before the wet mixture is poured into the molds, iron oxide color treatments are applied to the mold walls and absorbed into the concrete mixture to create the realistic look of an historic stone. The color and texture of Barnstones is so similar to natural stone that when installed, it is difficult to distinguish our manufactured product from a 150 year old foundation stone.
