I just saw some amazing stonework you did for my neighbor. I never knew Sprigs & Twigs did that. Is it too late in the year to arrange for a stonework project?
Thank you very much. Actually,
stonework has been part of Sprigs &
Twigs since we've been in business
and some of our masonry team has
been doing it for over 40 years! We
do stonework 12 months a year so
it's never too late to get a project
going. In the last two weeks we have
had stonework projects underway
in Waterford and East Lyme, both
of which are the first phase of a
landscape installation that will be
completed in spring 2014. Stonework
is designed and installed first and then
our design team develops the landscape design for installation when the weather warms
up and planting time arrives. So even though landscape installation is seasonal, Sprigs &
Twigs works through the winter designing landscapes, installing stonework and presenting
completed designs to customers. Every stonework project is unique and custom designed
for the customer's specific needs and tastes.
While we do all types of stonework, our specialty is
working with Connecticut fieldstone whether it be
in patios, walkways, staircases or simple stepping
stone pathways. Fieldstone adds an informal
elegance to your property that compliments both
the ages and styles of houses in our community.
All of our fieldstone comes from our local area.
Another popular material we use often is bluestone,
many times integrated with fieldstone walls or
fieldstone risers for stairs.
