Stone is often an overlooked player in a landscape. While we may swoon over the many shapes and colors of plants within a garden, the stone walks and walls stand silently by, perhaps unnoticed. Explore the beauty and enchantment that natural stone adds to an outdoor setting. Celebrate the versatility of solid, durable rock and discover the many ways stones and stonework can be featured in the landscape.
