Every county in England, and around the world for that matter, has its own unique style of stonework common to its rural hedges, garden walls and houses. This is due to the type of stone that naturally occurs in that part of the world, Cornwall is no exception. Cornwall is home to a lot of granite, of many different colours, textures, shapes and sizes. This granite can be used to build rustic dry stone walls, hedges, steps, large retaining walls or can even be cut, shaped or polished to achieve stunning finishes. If Cornwall can't provide exactly what you want, granites of many different colours from silver and brown to black and even pink can be sourced from further afield to ensure the perfect colour scheme in your garden.
There are other types of natural stone that can be used to suit the exact requirements of the individual. Callywith stone for example; depending on how it is laid will give a very different finish. Callywith can be dry laid for a beautiful, natural looking hedge that can allow plants to grow through, it can also be laid with mortar to turn an unsightly block retaining wall into a beautiful garden feature or even used to face a set of steps with a delicate and intricate stone finish. If you give beautiful stone to accomplished tradesmen, the possibilities are second only to the finish that can be achieved.
