Armour Stone
Armour stone has become a cornerstone in landscape design offering natural rugged beauty, strength and durability.  We are fortunate in Southern Ontario to be surrounded by such a variety of natural building materials including the sedimentary limestones and dolomites found locally in the Niagara Escarpment as well as amazing granites in the not-so-far-away Canadian Shield.  From retaining walls and borders to elaborate gardens, laneways and natural steps, armour stone offers a tremendous range of uses bounded only by your dreams and imagination.  We would be pleased to work with you and help make those dreams become a reality!

From Our Portfolio: Natural Armour Stone Steps

For this particular job, we were hired to replace some old stone steps leading from the mainland to the shoreline for a cottage in the Kawarthas. It involved removing the old stone - which we repurposed into a walkway - and then clearing out the surrounding area to prepare for the new stones. We hand-selected a limestone that naturally layered at roughly 6" to make for a comfortable step riser and worked it into the shoreline. This particular job required sensitivity due to the close proximetly to a Trent Severn Waterway as well as gardens, trees, and dock structures.  We finished the job with mulch to promote growth of the natural plants and a strong handrail with accent lighting down to the water.
