Most of the time, they are not square. Look at a bluestone patio, and stand at one end and look at the lines of the joints. They should be straight and even. Yet because bluestone is not always cut properly at the quarry, the pieces are not exactly straight. If used as is, your joint lines will not be straight either.
Arches and pergolas which are made with lattice tops and sides can provide support for climbing plants and vines. You can plant a climber such as a trumpet vine or honeysuckle at the base to create a landscape with a beautiful focal point.
So, what is the solution? 1.The contractor can assume there will be waste on the job and only use the best shaped pieces, ordering extra. This should be figured into the costs. 2.The pieces of bluestone can be saw cut to make them perfectly straight, also an extra cost due to the time involved. 3.Let your contractor know you are aware of this problem and that you expect a good job regarding this situation.
