Unleashing the Potential of Fruitlands Schist Stone in Landscaping

At Fruitlands Stone, we firmly believe that anything is achievable with our versatile and visually stunning schist stone. This metamorphic rock, found in Central Otago, can be used in a variety of ways to enhance the beauty and functionality of your outdoor spaces.


Traditionally, we see Fruitlands Schist Stone laid horizontally or as vertical facing stone using 40mm - 60mm Paving/Facing Stone to achieve stunning results. However, our latest picture supplied by our client, Justin McRae a talented Stonemason in Arrowtown, showcases an innovative use of the stone. The exterior landscaping wall, using 180mm stack stone laid on its side, is a perfect example of how an open-minded stonemason can achieve the result his customer is looking for.


This approach is a testament to the versatility of Fruitlands Schist Stone. It's not limited to just one or two uses. Instead, it can be applied in a multitude of ways to achieve unique and creative outcomes. Whether you're looking to create a retaining wall, water feature, outdoor fireplace, or any other landscaping project, Fruitlands Schist Stone can be used to bring your vision to life.


At Fruitlands Stone, we pride ourselves on providing our customers with the highest quality schist stone available. Our stones are carefully hand-selected, so you can rest assured that your project will have a consistent and professional finish.
