Since 1999, Bergen Designs has been providing Texas memorial benches to our customers in Texas. It’s no surprise to us – especially since our home state gets many visitors from Texas, and they like bringing part of the mountains home with them to remember Colorado. Our memorial benches and garden benches are the most beautiful and natural you can find anywhere, and certainly more appealing – than the man-made look of granite of cheap concrete benches. Plus, the natural red stone color of our benches fits perfectly in the grand Texas landscape. So if you live in Dallas, Houston, San Antonia, Austin or anywhere in between and you are looking for a personalized memorial bench, then look no further than Bergen Designs!
We got the bench on Wednesday and it looks so good. We are going to work on setting it this weekend and when I get it just right I will send you a picture. Scott you are the best….thank you so much. It is exactly what I wanted. I have told so many people here about it and cannot wait to show it off.
Thanks again, have an amazing day!

Colorado Red Flagstone is one of the highest quality Red Flagstones in the world making it a great resource for stone masons and building architects.
It is used as a structural stone in many applications outdoors and the hardness is due to millions of years of compression during the Permian Age. The high levels of silica and quartz give it a hardness rating stronger than marble.

From our FAQ section below
How strong are your benches?
Our Red Flagstone is known as one of the strongest red rocks available in the World. The silica and sand consistency is what petrifies it to an incredibly durable compound. Unlike stone from other parts of the country, this red flagstone maintains its integrity and strength in all types of climates. The structural strength of this particular stone makes it suitable for use in a residential setting as well as at public parks and cemeteries. Most of our benches are used in private memorial gardens however if placing in a public area, you will need to check with the local rules and guidelines for parks and cemeteries as some have strict guidelines as to the type of stone being used and size of the bench and how it is installed. We cannot be responsible for orders placed prior to a customer getting approval for the bench to be placed in the intended environment, this is why it is important for the customer to have all the approvals prior to ordering the bench from us, as all sales are final.
