Beautiful, long-lasting landscape solutions for challenging sites
Your landscaping should stand the test of time. And in many areas around Southern Georgian Bay — where a residential development is growing, or a new home’s being built next-door to your waterfront property, or the terrain makes it difficult to get in after the home is built — you soon lose easy access to the site. You only get one shot to do it right.
Mark Higginson, of Natural Stonescapes, has been designing and installing high-end natural stonescapes for 31 years, 25 of those in the Blue Mountains and Southern Georgian Bay area of Ontario, where he was born and grew up. He has an innate feel for the geography and unique characteristics of the area, and he’s not afraid of — in fact, he loves to find solutions for — challenging sites.
The best way to hire a custom landscape design-build company is to look at work it did five years ago. Most of the work in a quality landscape installation happens underground — long before the beautiful finished work emerges. Mark understands complex drainage, grading and compaction issues — a necessary (and surprisingly, rare) skill in an area where the Niagara Escarpment rears up behind many yards and gardens.
That’s one key reason builders and architects in Ontario’s Collingwood, Thornbury, Meaford and Beaver Valley area trust Natural Stonescapes and turn to Mark regularly for major landscape designs and installations.
And it’s why Southern Georgian Bay homeowners continue to appreciate their beautiful landscapes, stonescapes, gardens and pools long after Natural Stonescapes has finished the job.
