For centuries masonry has been a cornerstone of beautiful architecture. It’s timeless in both form and function. From the Italian Renaissance to twenty-first century modernism, stone walls and veneers remain an importance aspect of high-craft design. Its use in the garden has expanded the possibilities: extended walls and borders connected to the architecture broadens the perspective—natural stone fountains, pathways, and sculpture highlight the landscape. The work can be tedious, however in the hands of a skilled mason, one with experience and knowledge of the stone, transcends the unimaginable into art.
