Cooler on the feet than asphalt or brick, and of course it looks good. Stone makes a great patio, and no one is better at it than Toms Creek. Our patios look better, are better designed and of course better built than nearly all our competitors- there is no way around it. Our craftsmen have been creating stone patios for nearly 30 years and it shows.
Stone walls are hands down the most beautiful way to handle grade changes. We specialize in dry set wall and mortared walls. Dry set is great for low, non-supportive landscape walls. When building on top a wall (like a patio or parking lot) it's best to have a wet set wall that has been engineered to handle the load. We of course do both.
