OUR STONEWORK | WHAT WE DO

Design

We work directly with you to design the perfect space for your needs.  We supply full design services and focus on helping you see your project even before the build begins.  Alternatively, we can use a design you provide at your request.

Build

Based on your design, we dig out any necessary space and layout your stone.  We offer a wide variety of durable natural stones, armor stones, and engineered stones.  Your design dictates which combination of these stone varieties are used.  Materials are warehoused at our private facility if needed for your project.

Our expert staff then creates a stable foundation for your stonework.  Each piece is laid with precision and care.  You want your project to last a lifetime and our team approaches each build with that in mind.  Both our materials and workmanship are backed by generous warranties to ensure your peace of mind.

Maintain

Our services don’t end when the last stone is laid.  We also offer a wide variety of year-round property services to maintain your project no matter what mother nature throws at it.

 

STONEWORK BENEFITS

Quality Materials

All our builds use high-quality materials, hand-selected to meet the needs of your project.  Natural stone is available for a durable, classical look.  Armor stone is an excellent choice for projects that will be subject to heavy wear and water.  Engineered stone offers the widest variety of colors and options.  Whatever your needs, we have the right stone for you.

Removal Service

There is a dig associated with nearly all builds.  We remove and take away the extra soil, rock, and other materials dugout during this process.  This saves you the hassle of having to hire an additional removal service and keeps your property looking pristine.

Reliable Foundations

To ensure the durability of your stonework, base digs go as deep as needed to hit clay or another hard base material.  Once we have reached that solid base, foundation material is laid out and packed.  This is done to prevent any part of your stonework from sinking as it settles.

Expert Workmanship

We invest in the best at Green Machine.  Only quality craftsmen and top-end equipment can deliver excellence.  We invest in both top-end equipment and expert training for our staff to ensure that our services always deliver the best.

Peace of Mind

We understand that your project should last a lifetime.  To make sure it does, we offer warranties on our stone that range from 15 to 25 years.  The work of our expert staff is also covered by a 2 to 3-year warranty.  Your peace of mind is on top of our minds.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Stonework is an investment of your time and money.  We understand that which is why we work with you at every step of the process to ensure you are completely satisfied with the result.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Which stone is best for landscaping?

The best stone for landscaping depends on the specific needs and preferences of the individual or business. Some stones are better for colder climates, while others offer more color and variety.

At Green Machine, we have a variety of stones to choose from for your landscaping. In addition, we offer installation to ensure that your new stone driveway, patio, or walkway looks great and lasts for years to come.

2. Can you put a stone on top of the soil?

Yes, you can put a stone on top of the soil. Stone can help to prevent erosion and soil compaction, and it can also help to improve drainage. However, it’s important to make sure that the stone is the right size and weight for the soil type and climate, or it could do more harm than good.

3. Do you need to put anything under landscaping rocks?

It depends on your specific situation. If you are using landscaping rocks to cover up an area that tends to puddle or has a lot of water drainage problems, then you will definitely need to put something under the rocks to help with drainage. 

However, if your landscaping rocks are just being used for aesthetic purposes, then you may not need to put anything under them.

4. Are white rocks good for landscaping?

White rocks can be a beautiful addition to your landscaping. They can be used to create contrast against other colors in your garden, or to accentuate plants and flowers. They are also a popular choice for different types of garden designs.

5. How much landscape rock do I need?

To determine the amount of rock you’ll need for your project, start by measuring the width, length, and depth of the area you want to cover. Multiply those numbers together to get the total square footage. Next, divide the total square footage by 100 to get the number of tons of rock you’ll need.

If you have a sloped area, you’ll need to measure the height and length of the slope. Multiply those numbers together to get the total square footage. Next, divide the total square footage by 10 to get the number of tons of rock you’ll need. Finally, remember to account for breaks and corners in your design. You’ll need about 10% more rock to cover these areas. 

6. How deep should landscape rocks be?

When it comes to the size and depth of landscape rocks, there are a few things to consider.

One of the most important factors to consider when choosing the size and depth of landscape rocks is the weight of the rocks. 

Larger rocks will be heavier, and therefore will require a deeper hole. It is important to make sure that the rocks are stable and will not move once they are in place.

In addition to weight, it is important to consider the aesthetic of the rocks. Larger rocks may be too overpowering for a smaller property, while smaller rocks may be lost against a large landscape. It is important to choose a size and depth that will complement the existing landscape.
