Chunky Schist Stones for a dry stack landscaped retaining wall was the request!


Our Fruitlands Quarry can do special requests of any size stones.


Chunky 200 - 250mm long Schist Stone

The client purchased the stone direct from our Fruutlands Quarries and he contracted Matt Earney from Central Landscaping and Irrigation to complete his drystone stack landscaping wall project.


We arranged for a Hiab to deliver the schist stone onsite in Clyde.



The end result certainly adds value to your property. Virtually maintenance free and looks much better than a sloping hill.

A sneak preview of this fireplace where height and weight restrictions meant traditional cut schist stone is problematic to install.


We used our traditional Fruitlands Schist Stone from our Fruitland’s Quarry that we guillotined, and then using our diamond blade saw to cut the face off to produce a 40mm thick veneer.


This photograph is a prime example of Pembrook Schist installing our Lightweight Fruitlands Veneer with a wide joint and then flush pointed in a creamy white colour to achieve a contemporary appearance.
