Welcome to our new Stonework Blog

There will be regular entries and articles about stone construction, data about stone and rock materials, photographs of our latest projects and some fun sharing of found works of masonry from around the world. We hope you can join us on this journey!


I am a contractor who has been building stone and wood structures for almost 20 years in the Greater Seattle Area: stone patios, stone walkways, stone walls, rockery designs, brick and block, concrete pavers, precast concrete retaining blocks, decking, fencing and arbors. I have amassed a great deal of knowledge on these matters and am happy to share it with the public for the sake of growing the awareness of landscape construction and its possibilities.
