The landscape of Connecticut is dotted with iconic rustic stone walls, constructed by early settlers and farmers to delineate property borders and contain livestock. Stone walls provided a practical and durable way to repurpose all of the readily available building material unearthed as fields were cleared and plowed. Stones of all sizes were left behind in the soil as glaciers retreated across the area, and are so prevalent they are often referred to as “New England potatoes.” Anyone who has ever dug a garden or planting bed has had their shovel encounter at least a few of these in the process! The expert stonemasons at Gerbert & Sons will capture the allure of this natural element to enhance your yard with custom designed and installed stonework, using modern techniques and contemporary materials. From a practical retaining wall, the visual interest of a low border outlining planting beds, to the impactful curb appeal of a classic wall defining your property, add the timeless charm of stone to your landscape.
