Should flagstone match Ledger-stone?

lbphathead19November 2, 2012

My wife and I choose our flagstone this week, now we need to pick a ledger stone. My question is, should they be the same or match. I believe we are going to use a stacked stone.

Our flagstone coping is mesquite charcoal whiCh has grays and silver in it. The ledger samples I saw either matched very cloche or contrasted. What is the norm or what does anyone suggest.

I'm color blind so its very tough for me. Therefore the final decision will be with my wife.

Generally, a complimentary contrasting stone is needed. Matches are nearly impossible to attain.

That is what i was thinking. I think we are going to go with autumn rose from east west stone.
Can the ledger panels be used in a free form pool and spa with curves in it.

I think yes, because I saw in certain place like resorts and spa are use this ledger panels like Amber Falls, Alaska and etc which you may find easily in local market or online as But before use this you must ensure that it will match with the pool.
