Snapped Tennessee Crab Orchard (TCO) Natural Stone Steps Description & Details
Full Stone Name
Snapped Tennessee Crab Orchard Natural Stone Steps
Bright colors and snapped edges characterize this stone. Beautiful bands of accent colors in orange and rust, brown and tan. Add a touch of gray or white on select pieces and you get a uniquely colorful stone.
Base color is tan to brown but there is a strong presence of orange, rust and salmon in the unique color bands and blotches on TCO. Brown, white and gray accent colors are possible too.
All 4 edges are guillotine snapped for a straight but slightly rough finish. Top and bottom are sawn for a smooth but not slippery surface.
Most steps have roughly 6" riser heights. Length and width are highly variable and depend on the set. It is not uncommon for each step in a set to be 3-4 feet wide, 2 - 3 feet deep, and 6 to 8" tall, but that can vary widely. We have some sets that are much longer, and certain sets can have significantly smaller lengths and widths.
How It Is Sold

Frequently Asked Questions
In most cases a machine is required to move a step, and certainly required to move a whole set. Each step can weigh several hundred pounds with some steps easily weighing 400-500+ pounds. A skid-steer loader is one of the most frequently used machines for moving steps into place. If you have never done this before we highly recommend you consult a professional. Excavators, Masons and Landscapers are the types of contractors who have experience moving stone this large.
