Naturalistic Hardscape

With careful attention to every aesthetic, functional, and structural detail, we transform pallets of stone into works of art.  Our clients and their visitors are continually amazed by the metamorphosis that takes place on their properties.

From complex patio and terrace systems to pool coping or simple stone paths, ESC’s rock work is unique.  Natural stone is hand-selected for its density, natural edges, and size for each project.

Grades are tamed, patios appear, and access to hard-to-reach areas is grated by meandering walkways.  Undulating terraces with stone steps and niches for planting create and intimate effect within the larger scale.  Our rock designs are made to match the natural character of the land with locally harvested stone.

  • Design and construction of terraces, patios and paths

  • Use of large slabs of local stone with natural edges

  • Modeling natural topography to retain or direct rainwater
