Waterfalls: Natural Stone waterfalls are not exclusively within the realm of the rich. They are created and configured to meet all space, size and budgetary requirements. We use local stone or import from surrounding areas depending on the specific goals. Master Stone Masons place and aesthetically balance each piece to each other piece. Cutting is held to an absolute minimum to maintain the "natural" effect. Both natural and artificial stone are used to blend corners and curves, and to enclose pumps, waterlines, etc.
Waterfalls are utilitarian in that they operate as aeration as well as sound-soothing and eye-appealing. There are single, double and triple falls that work perfectly in most single-family home situations. With larger areas we can create multiple level falls of differing intensities always avoiding "drowning-out" (sorry about the pun) the beautiful sounds of the outdoors.Waterfalls also give a shelter effect to Koi to help these precious fish survive.
Koi Ponds: Koi Ponds are a perfect basin for waterfalls. Perfect, even without waterfalls. Properly maintained (it's very easy) Koi Ponds offer a place to meditate, relax, chill, mellow etc. Watching fish is actually therapeutic. Oh, it's fun, too! If you are unfamiliar with Koi we have a brief description Here.
Patios: Patios can be simple but not boring and patios can be quite complex and even more boring. It takes a keen eye to know what works in any given area. Should the patio be symmetrical or free-form, should it be flagstone, fieldstone or inlaid local stone? Perhaps a patio of pavers (interlocking brick-face) or decorated cement slab of different colors? A patio is much more than simply a place to keep your outdoor furniture. It is actually another living-area; a room genuinely linking the outdoors to the indoors.
Driveways: Similar to the aesthetics of patios, driveways can be boring or exciting. Flagstone, pavers, real brick, stone, decorator cement are but a few choices. You must decide if lighting is called-for or desired. Should the driveway be curbed? Should there be security devices. Should there be landscaping running the full length or should it be segmented? Are gates called-for, and if so should they be single or double, electric or manual?
Walls: Walls are used for many more reasons than just separating one section of something from another section. There are retaining walls that segment one elevation from another by strengthening the higher elevation and packing it with wall specific material. These walls which are used when necessary can also be made lovely to look at.
Stone walls offer a beautiful way of separating elements such as pool water from patio stone. Walls offer an exciting way of dividing flowers from steps and elevations from becoming lost.
Landscape Lighting: Enjoy the natural wonders around your home at night by adding landscape Lighting; but adding lights does more than allow you to appreciate your beautiful yard when it is dark. They can help make your home more secure and guide your guests from one area to the next.
With led technology you can now light up your home & landscaping for a fraction of the cost of traditional lighting. Led bulbs also last longer, so imagine never having to change a bulb for over a decade! Sounds good but looks even Better.
