StoneMakers Outdoor Living Area System
As we get set to start a new season (for those of you who had a winter) of hardscape projects , concrete retaining walls and outdoor living areas, we wanted to touch up on the subject of safety gear that can help you protect yourself while working. We all know that it can be a pain sometimes but in the long run it’s always worth the effort.
Many of us nowadays can’t find the time or the justification to get out for those much needed vacations. Does that mean all hope is lost? Ever think about having a permanent getaway right outside your back door? By investing in your own outdoor oasis you are not only adding value to your home, you are also creating a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere to enjoy at any time. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking.
Welcome to the March 14, 2013 edition of StoneMakers update. This will be a monthly feature to provide insight into the latest innovations and news from StoneMakers.
As part of their commitment to the men and women who serve in the US Armed Forces, StoneMakers has launched a program to give back to those that served. Along the lines of “Extreme Home Makeover”, Stonemakers will be donating a backyard makeover monthly to a deserving disabled veteran.
StoneMakers was recently featured on the DIY Networks show Yard Crashers. Lee and Connie Cummings, dealers from Cummings Landscape and Masonry along with David Montoya, President of StoneMakers and their crew participated in transforming a non-descript backyard into an entertainment oasis. The project included an outdoor kitchen and grill area, a fire pit, sitting benches, railroad tie bridge carved from concrete, and a magnificent LedgeFalls backyard waterfall.
The project for the StoneMakers April training in New Orleans, LA is an example of the extreme backyard resort style outdoor living area the StoneMakers system has evolved into. The need to use heavy equipment to move natural rock into place to create dramatic water features has been eliminated, as well as the safety issues dealing with 10 ton natural rock. And the time on the job? Rather than taking weeks or months to complete, this project was completed in just 4 days.
Since the developement and launch of the StoneMakers Ledgefalls system for resort style backyard water features, hundreds of backyard waterfalls have been installed. Using a frame and panel system, the customization of projects is limitless. So what are customers saying about these backyard transformations?
Brent Montry, a StoneMakers dealer from Tri State StoneMakers in Wisconson, integrates a monolithic concrete retaining wall into an existing landscape design in this three part video series. He demonstrates all the facets of building a retaining wall using the StoneMakers system from design to the finished project.
