Jim, thanks for the info. It is the look she wants, the stone will be real, we don't use fab here. The deck, patio, oven, and other projects to be will be 100% effort, genuine and long term functuality.

Acoma,

Good choice on real stone. I've pasted on miles of cultured stone. It is easier to work with, faster to lay and quicker to set, but to my eye the colors are never quite right. Cultured stone looks fine from a distance, but once you get up close, it's obvious that it just ain't real. As I said earlier, it also has a tendency to fade over time. UV is the enemy of reall stone as well, but using a good sealant will preserve the colors much, much longer.

Jim

Well stated. My wife and I totally agree. Why build such a masterpiece, then put cultered on it. Well, when I say masterpiece, that may be in the eye of the beholder
