Landscape Gardeners

Stone adds gravitas and a timeless quality to your projects

With its versatility and inherent beauty, stone should be a landscape gardener’s first choice of structural material for a garden. But why would you need a stonemason? Because the organic shape of natural stones hidden in a rockery can be enhanced with a surprising carved quotation. A contemporary piece of sculpture can bring focus to a bank of greenery. The possibilities are endless and I have the skills and experience to bring them to life.

Geraint Davies Stonemasonry for all your stonework needs

I can carve traditional and contemporary pieces of sculpture, carve lettering into paving, walls or onto a stone feature, create or repair walling or turn any of your ideas into stone. I’m always happy to share my experiences and give advice on how you can realise you or your clients’ ideas. I can obviously give estimates for pitches or commissioned projects alike. Please call me (Geraint) on 07803 908 066, email me or use the contact form below to get in touch.

Some of my commissions and garden stonework

This green man carving was inspired by medieval Bavarian carvings and was a private commission.

Project in Wimbledon which involved coursed-rubble walling in Doulting stone and an S-shaped external set of steps in Yorkstone.

Rubble Walling and steps 01

We had to pack the back of the wall out to continue the line of the building.

Rubble Walling and steps 02

This is at an almost-finished stage. The architect requested an additional two steps to be added to the bottom of the staircase.

Rubble Walling and steps 03

The rubble wall was pointed using lime mortar (hydraulic 3.5 lime, and sharp sand). The purple pad stones at the bottom are St Bees sandstone, and will eventually be the bases for the legs of a steel walkway.

Testimonials

In the Summer of 2014, Geraint Davies made a beautiful headstone for the grave of my husband David Bowles. He carved a perfect low-relief version of the Green Man head that was David’s signature piece, and below that, he cut the lettering showing his name, dates, and a blessing, all in mellow York Stone. The lettering is delicate and fine, giving the Green Man Roundel a prominent position. My family and I are very pleased with, and impressed by the quality of Geraint’s work, including the dedication he put into faithfully reproducing the carved image, and the way he involved us at every stage of the process. I recommend Geraint Davies as Artist, Sculptor, Stone Cutter, Calligrapher and Mason, as his skills encompass all of these forms. His level of commitment and devotion to excellence, are rare and wonderful qualities, along with his ability to relate to clients needs with sensitivity and intelligence, all contribute to the high quality of his work.
