Saint Paul, MN (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
With spring time approaching and in celebration of Earth Day, Stoneman Masonry, Inc. prepares to bring its customers a uniquely beautiful and environmentally-friendly new masonry service. Through its ‘Green Mason' service, Stoneman Masonry designs stunning hardscapes for patios, retaining walls and outdoor fireplaces all while utilizing discarded pieces of concrete. Ben Kidd, owner and masonry artist explained, “We are very proud of this service. I love striking and distinctive designs and making my clients’ backyard their favorite part of their home. But I really take pride in using what is essentially discarded waste and turning it into something beautiful. By using recycled concrete, we not only help the environment, we can be sure no two designs will ever be exactly the same.”
Why is this process different? For most hardscape transformations, deciding upon the type of stone is the most important decision. Colors, durability, and price all play a factor in choosing the right stone for your outdoor patio, fireplace, or retaining wall. The Green Mason process involves recycling pieces of demolished concrete and using it in place of more expensive pieces of stone. The result? Exactly what you were hoping for, a unique, beautiful design without the expensive stonework. With the Green Mason service, the only thing you have to worry about is how many of your neighbors will want to spend time in your backyard. “There is literally no other masonry company that can match what Stoneman does. They are fantastic to work with and they truly enjoy what they do,” said Craig Baumgartner, Stoneman Masonry Green Mason customer.
Stoneman Masonry is a masonry design and repair company located in St. Paul, Minnesota. Owned by Ben Kidd and Dan Carriere, two apprentice-trained stonemasons, Stoneman Masonry under Ben and Dan has been nothing but innovative. Ben bought Stoneman Masonry in 2006 and changed the focus from masonry repair to masonry design. The company still performs masonry repair work, but its main focus is on creating outdoor experiences for homeowners looking to improve their backyards.
