One of the ways we provide superior service is through the use of sample walls and mock-ups. Friday we constructed such a wall for a client near Banner Elk who has an embarrassment of stone. By building a sample, we were able to define the style to the satisfaction of the clients and determine pricing for future projects.
I also provided a service for this client that was unique and interesting. The owners had a problem with people using their property as a cut -through to a nearby trail, and vandals had destroyed a tubular metal gate. I suggested using an excavator to create barricades and block access to the property.
Another recent project involved building a drystone patio for clients in Banner Elk. We used extra large slabs of chocolate grey stone, and collaborated with Landscaping by Travis to add Irish Moss, Creeping Thyme, and a purple clematis.
Today I am back from vacation and stopped by the Grandfather Golf and Country Club bridge and spillway project, and I am pleased to offer photos of the job. We installed a lightweight mosaic river stone on poured concrete walls, as well, as doing repairs the other walls of the spillway. Additionally, we built 5 stone columns supporting the timber guardrail with a pattern to match the clubhouse.
