Stone Water Features
Stone is also great within water features. Stone has both a beautiful natural look to it and is very strong and resilient so will last longer than other non-natural options. Some examples of where stone can be used within a water feature include:
- Swimming pool
- Well defined pond
- Stone benches
STONE STEPS AND WALKWAYS
Stone steps are another popular element of stone masonry. Steps are not only functional but can also really enhance a landscape design by creating walkways between different levels of your garden or landscape exterior spaces.
Many stones that you’ll find used in stone steps include bluestone, granite stone & bricks (which are great for risers and steps). Browse our gallery below for some examples of beautiful stone steps James Martin Associates has designed and installed for clients across Greater Chicago over the the last 40+ years.
