Stone Mason Landscaping
The use of stone masonry in landscaping has been used over many years with great success. Some examples of construction are:
retaining walls – feature walls – fences – letter boxes – stairs – water features – wood fired pizza ovens – garden edging – flagging – exterior veneers – fireplaces – interior veneers – entrance ways – pillars – wine cellars…….and just about anything else you can think of.
Benefits of Choosing Stone
Choosing to build with natural locally sourced sandstone or bush rock over other materials has many benefits:
* Greater strength and durability (stone and rock has been around for thousands of years withstanding the test of time)
* Eye Catching Visual Appeal (creates a focal point and will leave a lasting impression and just keeps getting better with age)
* Extra Added Property Value (the added value to your property will be greater than the cost of the work making it a great investment)
* NO Replacement Years Later! BUILT to LAST!!
Bush Rock (basalt)
Bush rock is in abundance in the area we service making it a popular choice to use. It gets mossy in the right conditions ( wet and shady areas ) making it a very appealing stone to build a feature point on any property, because of this bush rock is an excellent choice for water features. Bush rock is generally darker than sandstone and comes in some very interesting textures and shapes. A feature out of bush rock can be greatly enhanced just by having a few plants and gardens around them. We also supply large bush rock for random placement in gardens which can give some added dimension to the overall appearance.
Sandstone has a wide range of tones, colours and interesting qualities that make it really stand out and grab your attention. It can be used in tight areas to make the area appear larger because of there lighter tones. Another good feature of sandstone is that it is course and porous giving it good gripping properties making it a good choice to use as steps and flagstone paving. Being able to mix up the colours or keep to one colour gives you more options to create something a bit unique. The combination of timber and stone go very well together and compliment each other as illustrated in the photo.
