Here is a picture we just received of our Big Dig cobblestones being installed for a cobblestone driveway in Rowayton, CT. We will be back within the next few weeks on this topic with some great photos of the finished project and tips from the installer on the process of installing reclaimed cobbles.
Stone Farm is happy to assist with everything you need to know regarding the planning process of a cobblestone driveway install.

A renovation to an old Mill in Rhode Island has uncovered a trove on antique cobblestones. These stones are all roughly 7-8″ x 7-8″ x 3.5-4.5″. When reclaiming cobbles from New England we usually find a real range in sizes for the cobbles, these are all very uniform. We are putting 100 stones on a pallet and are shipping them now.
What is both fun and challenging about reclaimed materials is their inconsistency…no two stones are the same. Most recently here at Stone Farm we have been trying to come up with packaging options for our beautiful “Big Dig” cobblestones.
We think we have settled on three size ranges. Jumbos – 10″ to 14″ long, mediums 6″-9″ long and “smalls and cubes” which seem to come in and endless number of actual sizes, all of which change depending on how you decide to install them.
What we ended up with is creating a “small” size that works well for a patchwork installation ,but probably less well for a running bond. Check out the photo of our “test” layer. Let us know what you think. The character of these stones can’t be beat.
