Reclaimed Granite Inlay

April 27, 2010
BY Gavin Johnston

Today I stopped by a house/project I got to collaborate on last year that reminded me of what I really like about supply stone to unique outdoor living spaces.

The house is a classic 1800's right on High street in my hometown of Newburyport, MA. Kim Turner of www.kdturnerdesign.com is the landscape architect and Verne Fischer of www.visionarylandscapes.com did the installation. I Have worked with both extensively.

Kim came up with the idea to "frame" the brick parking court with a reclaimed granite inlay. Verne approached me with the challenge of finding old granite that was not too thick and hard to handle and preferably 6" wide which is what Kim had called for. I was able to find antique slope curb that measures 12" wide by 6" deep in random lengths. Verne took that material and cut it down the center. Check out how it turned out.
