The smear is just the mortar that the stone was laid up in, and was not completely cleaned off. We used a buff mortar mix which is regular brick sand with white mortar mixed together.

This is a true stone facade. The material cost is around $150/ton delivered to our site in DFW. We budget around $12-$13 per face square foot of exterior walls to buy all the materials and pay the labor to install the stone. Hope that helps.

Todd, did you add any color to the slabs or is that just the color of the concrete? It almost has a blue/ grey color

Love this stone, what is it called?

That stone is called Chopped Granbury, from the Dallas-Ft. Worth area in Texas. It was laid in a thick mortar joint with a slight 'smear' to try and make it look old. Hope that helps.

The Mondo grass in between the step stones is weak compared to the rest of the house. Thicker Grass should have been laid there. Also, the transition trim on the outside of the stone 3 quarters of the way up is too thin. It should have been more chunky. The rest of the home is fabulous.
