English Garden Balustrade
Throughout history, balustrades have enhanced the beauty and character of fine architecture. In engineering our balustrades, Betz Cut Stone Limited has combined state-of-the-art technology and Indiana Limestone to produce a classic English Garden Balustrade design that provides rich detailing with significant advantages for any application.

English Garden Balustrades
are made from the finest
quality material, Indiana
Limestone. The distressed
limestone may have a few
imperfections, saw lines
or chips on the surface.
The colour is variegated
(gray/buff mix). Indiana
limestone ages gracefully
over time and does not
need to be stained or
sealed as with concrete
products.
