Colonial Bluestone Steppers 5″- 8″ Thick


Colonial Bluestone Steppers, with a thickness of approximately 5 to 8 inches, are robust, natural stone elements commonly used in landscaping and architectural designs. Derived from bluestone, these steppers retain the inherent characteristics and aesthetic appeal of the parent material, while their substantial thickness makes them particularly suited for specific applications. Here’s an overview of their characteristics, benefits, applications, installation, and maintenance.


  • Thickness: The 5 to 8 inches thickness of Colonial Bluestone Steppers provides exceptional durability and stability, making them suitable for heavy-duty applications.
  • Color Variations: Like standard bluestone, these steppers showcase a range of colors, from blues and grays to greens, depending on the mineral composition of the stone from which they are cut.
  • Natural Texture: The natural cleft surface, common to bluestone, is present in these steppers, offering a rustic, appealing texture that also enhances slip resistance.
  • Unique Shapes: Often cut into irregular shapes, Colonial Bluestone Steppers blend seamlessly into natural landscapes, offering an organic aesthetic appeal.


  • Durability: The significant thickness and inherent strength of bluestone make these steppers extraordinarily durable and capable of withstanding harsh weather conditions and heavy foot traffic.
  • Aesthetic Appeal: The natural beauty of bluestone, with its color variations and texture, adds a timeless elegance to any outdoor space.
  • Versatility: Suitable for various design styles, from traditional to contemporary, these steppers can be used in numerous landscaping projects.
  • Low Maintenance: Requiring minimal upkeep beyond regular cleaning, these steppers are an ideal choice for both residential and commercial properties.


Colonial Bluestone Steppers are versatile and can be used in a variety of outdoor applications, including:

  • Garden Paths: Creating inviting, natural-looking pathways through garden areas.
  • Stepping Stone Walkways: Providing a stable and attractive solution for navigating across lawns or connecting different areas of a landscape.
  • Patio Accents: Serving as unique, decorative elements within larger patio designs, often used to define spaces or create visual interest.
  • Landscape Features: Acting as natural edging or standalone features within garden beds or around water features.


  • Preparation: Begin with a stable base, typically consisting of compacted gravel or sand, ensuring proper drainage and a level surface.
  • Laying the Steppers: Place the steppers directly onto the prepared base, leaving enough space between them for natural movement and expansion. For more formal designs, the space between steppers can be filled with gravel, sand, or planting material.
  • Adjustment: Once laid, the steppers may require slight adjustments to ensure they are level and stable, preventing any wobbling or shifting underfoot.


Maintenance of Colonial Bluestone Steppers involves:

  • Regular Cleaning: Simple sweeping and occasional rinsing with water are often sufficient to maintain their appearance. For more thorough cleaning, a mild detergent can be used.
  • Stain Management: Promptly addressing spills and stains helps prevent permanent discoloration. Specific cleaners designed for natural stone can be used for tough stains.
  • Sealing (Optional): While not always necessary, applying a sealant can protect the steppers from staining and weathering, enhancing their natural color.

By incorporating Colonial Bluestone Steppers into your landscape, you can achieve a balance of natural beauty, durability, and functionality, creating outdoor spaces that are both inviting and enduring.
