Hardscape and natural stone services

The use of stone can add a distinctive accent to your landscape.  This pathway is centered in an island and connects with a bridge to a boat dock.  These stones near the dock are 3' x 4' in size! We set them in by hand at perfect level and stability fitting together each slab as it might naturally be found. 


Flagstone patios have a very detailed installation procedure. We DO NOT simply put the stones down in the dirt. We have extensive prep and assembly procedures that ensure a top quality installation. Our stone work is top notch, and featured on our supplier’s website.

Loose rock beds

When we install large areas of rock or use rock as mulch, our experience has taught us that first we need to follow detailed installation procedures so your rock bed looks good long term an second you need to know how to care for these areas. We will give you instruction on this after completion of the project.

When we do step stones, we don’t simply lay the stone on top of the ground in a line. We will follow our procedure detail to make sure it not only looks good but is also stable.
