Fieldstone is a natural stone with a rustic look, occurring in various colors, including brown, gray, lilac and moss.  This material can be used for an exterior wall, fireplace, as a patio or as a stepping stone.

How much does fieldstone cost?

On average, fieldstone can be purchased anywhere from $80 to as much as $180 per ton.  The price will depend on your geographical location, the type and where you purchase it.

For example, Oaklawn-Timber-Stone.com, a supplier that sells fieldstone in Tennessee, sells different types of fieldstone, including thin stack, thick cap and aslar end pieces.  The price of the fieldstone depends on the type and the amount, but the costs, according to the website, ranges anywhere from $89 to $169 per ton.

Mike’s Landscaping Supplies, a supplier located in Maryland, lists its pricing on their website.  According to the website, they charge by the pallet, and the costs, regardless of the thickness, will cost $255 per pallet.

On Houzz.com, forum members discussed the prices of Pennsylvania fieldstone.  According to most, the prices ranged anywhere from $128 to $200 per ton, but many agreed a ton wasn’t much when it showed up for delivery.

Fieldstone overview

If buying from a supplier, most will either charge by the ton or by the pallet, which weighs about one and a half tons on average.  Most of your fieldstone at a local supplier will already be cut to size and will come in thicknesses ranging from one to eight inches thick.  The stone will commonly be marked and will be intended to be used either for forming a wall, a patio or as a stepping stone.  Depending on the supplier, some may also offer boulders in its natural form.  Keep in mind, however, that the larger the stones are naturally, the more it can cost.  In its natural form, fieldstone is usually flatter than other stones, coming in a mix of oval or rounded rectangles.

What are the extra costs?

For any type of landscaping job, you may need to hire a professional landscaper to work with.  Fieldstone is commonly used to create walls or a patio.  To have a professional install a fieldstone wall, for example, the costs could be in the $12 to $19 per square foot range.  Installing a fieldstone patio can be in the $10 to $20 per square foot range.  If hiring a professional, the costs will depend on the scope of your project, the contractor you hire and where you live.  If you want an exact quote for your project, we highly advise you use free bid services like HomeAdvisor.com.  Here, you simply describe your job and contracts will offer a ballpark estimate for free.

Some landscape suppliers may charge a delivery fee if they have to deliver outside of their area or you don’t meet the minimum requirement spend.

Tips to know:

Fieldstone can be cut or split depending on the need of the construction. You can order large stones, small stones, or a combination of the two.  If you prefer the stones to look more natural, you should purchase small stones rather than large ones to make sure that they retain the shape and size; this looks more natural than the large ones that have been cut.

Due to the stone’s inconsistent size and shape, it can make it hard to install.  The inconsistency can also create an uneven surface if installed on a patio or used as a stepping stone.

Northeast Stone Works says one square foot one inch thick will weigh 14 pounds.

How can I save money?

To save money, look for a dealer close to your area.  This will reduce the cost of the delivery.

You can mix fieldstone with other construction materials or combine it with each other stones for varying effects.  For example, you can use fieldstone on the lower part of the wall while the upper half is simply painted.
