Working with stone is one of my favorite things to do. I think this is largely because no two are alike. I pride myself on my ability to work with what I have to create something truly beautiful. This is one of the most spiritual experiences in landscape harmony, as I dig through the pile I’m fortuitously presented with pieces that create an even more stunning landscape than I could have imagined. As if by some grand design the art was making itself.
Stone Patios present unique challenges as I work with raw materials in an effort to domesticate the natural world in an organized and harmonious way.
The cultured stone materials available, like interlock, require less creativity, however, these materials bring an affordable and extremely balanced aesthetic compared to flagstone, field stone and cobble.
