The use of stone can make a strong statement in any outdoor setting, gracefully accenting plantings, adding variation to a stretch of lawn, and providing a sense of place in a contiguous landscape. Cut with precision or left in its natural form, it requires a carefully placed, thought-out design when integrating within the context of your landscape.

You may choose to counter the bold look of its use in pathways, anchoring either side with robust perennial beds, or embed within an expanse of moss groundcover for a storybook setting. From patio paving and pathways, to retaining walls and garden bed borders, stone’s inherent characteristics and possible forms, make it a staple for almost any garden and landscape setting to incorporate.
