For larger, natural stone retaining walls and erosion control
Armour Stone is large, naturally-flat, roughly square-to-rectangular-shaped natural stone normally moved by heavy machinery. Because of its size and weight, this wall stone is generally most suitable for medium-to-large, natural-looking retaining walls and erosion control.
Traditionally, Armour Stone was quarried by drilling and blasting, so its final size, shape and quantity could not be guaranteed. Through advances in air-deck quarrying technology, Shaw Brick now offers it in a more consistent size, shape and weight – yet it looks totally natural. This landscaping stone is available in a consistent choice of block heights ranging from 9″ to 30″ and two natural stone colours.
Flat-topped Armour Stone can be easily stacked to create beautiful retaining walls, impressive entrance pillars or gateways, stunning water features, natural rock gardens, or whatever you wish. Consider a random arrangement of this natural stone as a dramatic backyard focal point or a striking accent to other natural stone walls.
Guillotined Armour Stone is a smaller, clean-cut alternative
Guillotined Armour Stone is naturally-flat, in rectangular-shaped blocks with a fairly uniform depth and consistent split face. Movable with lightweight equipment and most suitable for low-to-medium-height retaining walls where a more consistent uniform look is desired. This landscaping stone is available in a consistent choice of block heights ranging from 9″ to 19″ and in three natural stone colours.
