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.
