Services

Standing Stone Landscape Architecture provides services in three general areas: Design, Installation, and Restoration. Some projects take place entirely in one area, while others overlap. Standing Stone will provide the combination of services best suited for your project.

Standing Stone installs the majority of its designs. However, some projects that have been designed by Standing Stone have been built by other contractors, and Standing Stone has built work designed by others.

Restoration projects are often separate from new design and installation. Sometimes certain existing features are restored as part of a new landscape. Much of Standing Stone's restoration work is focused on dry stone walls and cemetery repair. Standing Stone has also been contracted for garden restoration.

The Standing Stone Difference

Standing Stone's complete package of professional services sets it apart from other companies. By keeping services in-house, Standing Stone is more efficient when working on a project, reducing costs and construction delays. It also creates an even continuum throughout entire projects, enabling the goals of the project to be met with the highest quality.
