This is mostly old Georgia granite. There is a process whereby they "age" newly quarried granite to make it look very much like this.

What are the names of the shrubs/bushes in the front? - I'd like to put something similar in the bed immediately in the front of my house - they go well with the brick.

No question, just a comment - The brickwork is wonderful!! Would LOVE to do something like this, but it appears by your response to previous inquiries that there is no modern product available.

Thank you! We did salvage all the old brick we could to make sure the front matched. Some new brick was blended into the sides where it is not as visible.

You may want to make a trip to your local brick yard to see if there is something available that works for you.

The brick is similar to 549. I like how the roof and door make it more attractive. Maybe something similar would help. Also - ANY possibility of changing 549 roofline??
