In an age where manufactured concrete masonry products have become more and more prevalent, it can be difficult to find a landscaper who will install natural stone. At Green Monster Landscapes, we have always excelled in the area of stone masonry and the construction of natural stone walls. It just fits with our style and mission – to never have two jobs that look the same. When it comes to natural stone, you can’t help it…every stone wall is going to be different!
Concrete Masonry Products Versus Natural Stone
Concrete masonry products do have their place in the industry. Landscape block is functional and relatively easy to install. Cultured stone veneers come in prepackaged kits that fit virtually any vertical application and involve very little time to install. When production is the primary objective, there’s no substitution for these concrete products.
However, when it comes to longevity and true craftsmanship, there is no substitution for natural stone masonry. Concrete products will eventually age and fade; natural stone will outlast all of us and look better the more it ages. A properly assembled dry stacked stone wall is incredibly strong because of the weight of the interlocking stones; it needs no mortar to hold it together. Natural stone integrates nicely with home landscapes in the New Hampshire Lakes Region. Stone masonry is also better for seacoast areas due to its natural resistance to salt-spray.
A Stone Masonry Puzzle…Shaped and Assembled Just for You!
Whether it’s a dry-stacked free-standing wall, stone retaining wall, vertical veneer, or patio made of bluestone, our team of talented stone masons are excited to turn a pile of rocks into a work of art. Each stone is selected and hand shaped using traditional hammer-and-chisel techniques to fit perfectly. We’re not in a hurry – it’s like a big stone puzzle that we shape and assemble just for you!

Building becomes architecture only when the mind of man consciously takes it and tries with all his resources to make it beautiful, to put concordance, sympathy with nature, and all that into it. Then you have architecture.– Frank Lloyd Wright
