We are thinking of removing the cement in our front yard here in Brooklyn, creating a garden bed, and putting down either slate or bluestone pavers over the rest. Does anyone know of a good, local, affordable source for this kind of thing? Could be rectangular or random/jagged pieces...old or new...
We need about 135' sq. Any ideas?
Thanks so much!
This company in red hook has it: http://www.extechbuilding.com/

Just went through this... If you want irregular pieces, Home Depot has them cheap. For large pieces, Extech in Red Hook has great customer service, but is a little more expensive than, say Kings Building Materials (kingsny.com) in Midwood. Slate will run you 6-7.50 / sq foot there, bluestone a little less.

Check out Craigs list. Alot of times people are installing new patios etc. A friend of mine got alot of beautiful bluestone for free from a contractor who just wanted to get rid of it when he was putting in a new patio for a customer. Turns out my friend knew the contractor. Worth giving it a shot as good quality bluestone isn't cheap.
