Bought this to remodel our back patio, I was planning on installing it on the front as well, but changed plans for the front of the house. It is 100% real Stone so if you have to cut it it looks like a stone still and not fake like a faux stone material. It is a veneer so it is around 1 in thick with a flat back so it is easy to install. Being a real Stone it is virtually indestructible and made to be in the elements. This will outlive the life of your home. You don't have to worry about it below/at ground level, rain, or sun. Can be installed with or without mortar joints. I went with the dry stack look. Couldn't be happier with the look and product. Way nicer than I could find anywhere around here or at any big box stores. I purchased it through stoneyard.com, it is the Boston blend ledgestone. Lot of pictures and information on their website. It came out of Massachusetts. I purchased 173 sqft and there is roughly 80 to 85 sqft left, and 1 8x8 large stone if needed to mount a light or something similar. This is enough to do a fairly good-sized project. I'm selling it for far less then it costs. This is around a quarter of what it costs new. I can load the pallet in the back of a pickup or on a trailer. This is a stone you won't find around here, and would be installed on a very high-end home or building. If you have any questions or would like to see the stone installed on our patio please call or message.
