Landscape Improvements with Natural Stone
Blue-Con supplies and installs a range of natural landscaping stone to enhance any municipal, commercial or domestic landscape improvements.

What is armour stone?
Armour stone is natural quarry stone, chosen for its durability and resistance to wear and erosion. Traditionally, Armour stone is quarried by drilling and blasting, so its final size, shape and quantity could not be guaranteed.
Through advances in air-deck quarrying technology, Blue-Con can now offer Armour stone that is consistent in size, shape and weight, yet looks totally natural. Our flat-topped stones can be easily stacked to create beautiful retaining walls, impressive entrance pillars or gateways, stunning water features, naturalistic rock gardens, or whatever you wish! Armour stone can be particularly pleasing in pool or water environments due to the fossils contained within almost every stone.
Armour Stone Sizes and Shapes
With a range of sizes from cuboid wall stones to slabs up to four tonnes, you can quickly create impressive features and structures either manually or using heavy machinery.
Blue-Con can deliver your Armour stone direct onto site using our own fleet of vehicles, for fast and efficient service. .
For projects where size consistency is less important but beautification is still required, such as shoreline protection, we source and deliver durable quarry stone rip-rap.
