The Building Blocks of Your Project (Literally!)

Raised Bluestone Planting Beds

What are the options when it comes to deciding on the most basic elements of a landscape program…such as the material your terrace is made of? Yes, there are a litany of materials to choose from but a professional can help shuck this list down to a very manageable set of choices that are at once practical and beautiful.

Selection is only the beginning, however.  Forming the raw material into a designed product is how a landscape architect will bring novelty and beauty into a landscape program.  These photos show how Cross River has applied bluestone in our recent projects.  Unique and visually stimulating!
