Stone and concrete edging also gives your pets a great spot to lounge on!

By adding a river rock drain channel, we can help prevent erosion in washout areas.
Here is Dove Grey stone edging selected to tie the home in with the yard. We planted low maintenance plants for their foundation beds.
This edging is constructed with Midnight Blue stone. We added colorful plantings to enliven the landscape.
Here is the same project at the home's entrance. We curved the edging with the sidewalk for clean edges.
By mixing different hardscape elements, we were able to create a tasteful and functional area. We used bricks for edges to pour the concrete, and we set cut pieces of Pennsylvania flagstone for visual effect.
We used bricks for the wall to elevate this nice spot to spend the afternoon. Dove Grey stone with polymeric stone dust serves as the floor for the patio.
Outdoor entertaining areas like this Belgard paver patio we built add enjoyment space when the screen porch isn't enough.
We built this boulder firepit area with Golden Flint patio stone set with granite quarry dust. It is rustic and durable for evening gatherings.
In addition to circular firepits, we also build outdoor chimneys with stone to accompany patios.
We constructed this outdoor fireplace with Beige Craborchard ruble stone. It has a stone counter which also serves as a woodbin.
This circular fire pit area also has a stone bench on top of the patio's elevating retaining wall.
LED landscape lighting makes the fire pit area usable at any hour.

After correcting drainage with a river rock dry creek bed, We installed stepping stones for a path through the mulch.
From renovations to new installations, we can help your home with curb appeal.

Stonework adds value as well as a sense of permanence to outdoor living areas. We overlaid the patio with Pennsylvania flagstone and veneered the walls, bench, fire pit, and columns with Tennessee fieldstone. To see the dramatic improvement, click on the picture to see what this area looked like on our Before and After page.
Another view of the patio area. Stepping stones through the river rock makes a path past the Disappearing fountain to other areas of the yard.
Retaining walls give a sloped yard more usable space. We drystacked Ashler wall stone after grading the area for the Earthtone Craborchard walkway and patio. We built a Disappearing waterfall into the steeper part of the hill to provide the owners and their guests the soothing sound of falling water. To see this and other waterfalls we have built, click on picture to link to our Water Feature page.
The walls are constructed with Ashler stone and the walkway is Earthtone Craborchard flagstone with polymeric stone dust in the joints. We installed Zeon Zoysia behind the wall after completing the stone work.
This was built with different mixes of pink and tan Crab Orchard flagstone. We constructed a wall of Tennessee fieldstone to elevate the patio to help compensate for the slope.
Stone patios are dog friendly solutions to areas where its hard to grow grass. Here we used Grey Craborchard flagstone with polymeric stone dust to stabilize the joints. To see other ways we can help your yard work better for your dogs, click on picture to link to our Pet Friendly Landscaping page.

A stone bench can also act as a retaining wall around the fire pit with the Crab Orchard stone patio. The sound of the pondless waterfall can be enjoyed at the same time!
Another Crab Orchard Patio set in concrete provides a comfortable cook out spot.
Paver patios are great outdoor living surfaces. We used Belgard Country Manor blocks and Dublin Cobble pavers for the construction.
The Pennsylvania Blue flagstone we set is perfect to complement colorful plants.
We built this "Living" patio with flagstone on leveling sand. Elfin Thyme provides a nice carpet for barefoot afternoons.
'DeGroot's Spire' Arborvitaes frame the walkway to the fire pit patio. We used Mt. Mist patio stone and small river gravel in the joints.
We elevated the outer edge of this Pennsylvania flagstone nearly 4' with Belgard retaining blocks. Nearly 20' wide and complete with LED landscape lights, it affords plenty of space for entertaining guests.
This lovely Earthtone Craborchard flagstone patio has a curved Belgard Celtik wall bench for casual sitting. We added LED landscape lighting under the capstones and on the newly planted Japanese Maple.
Colorful trees and shrubs welcome visitors to the front door along the stone path.
