A well planned hardscape works in many ways to enhance the enjoyment your family gets out of your home. Whether you need a private tranquil oasis nearby to retreat to throughout the day, a space built to gather with family and friends for years to come, or both, the fun for us begins immediately as we imagine the possibilities for each unique site and client.  We love new ideas and challenges as both expand our knowledge of the trade.  We love art for the sake of art and we try to connect with our clients and deliver a finished product that will bring enjoyment for many, many years to come.

We design and install custom water features, hardscapes, and artistic accents built from an array of natural and man-made products.. Although we are based out of the greater Akron area in Ohio, our work here is seasonal and we are are always willing to travel.    (Please contact Ben Mergenov for further information)   We take great pride in our installations and have worked hard to create elegant functional hardscapes that mimic elements of nature with great authenticity.

Artistic Water Feature

& Hardscape Installation


Although we work on the fringe of a competitive industry that is driven to focus on mass production, we approach our work as artistic craftsmen.

We enjoy paying attention to fine detail while we work.  For us, it is usually among these easily overlooked details where we find the unique opportunities to turn each project into what we consider functional art.  

The allowance for this creative expression not only makes the work fulfilling to ourselves, but often enables us to give our work a slightly spicier flavour than what is often found in our industry.  

We are passionate about stone

Let us share our craft with you!
