Rock and stonework is a staple of Details Landscape Art, one of Sonoma County’s premier landscape contractors. We think natural stone is an important element in a garden. Our rustic stonescaping includes mortared or dry stack fieldstone and ledgestone walls, large placement boulders, flagstone, and a variety of cultured stone applications. A garden that has some wood, some stone, some water and some foliage is a complete and interesting garden.
There are hundreds of stone and cultured stone products available in the North Bay, and we work with the homeowner to select the right one for the application based on their taste, the style and color of the home, and the other elements in the garden. We are careful, however, not too mix too many different hardscape elements. A garden that has brick and flagstone and cultured stone and tile is way too busy. Simplicity and consistency are always more appealing.
Our masons are experienced and artistic. We cut and chip flagstone to make an interesting random pattern, whether on a wall or a patio. We score the underside of the edge pieces and then gently break the stone, so the cut edge is not visible. Boulders are all hand picked… we look for moss, interesting shapes and more moss. They are strategically placed, sometimes in groupings, as accents to the plant material. We build beautiful brick walls and seat benches, and use brick to accent patios and to edge lawns.
