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

We hired Geraint to undertake a delicate Bath stone repair job as part of an extensive English Heritage external refurb. We required the job to be turned around quickly. He promptly attended site to measure up and take profiles of the decorative stone work we needed to match in and repair. Later that day I had a price which was approved. Due to his connections he managed to get the supplier to deliver and cut the stone in double quick time which was then worked quickly in his work shop. Lastly he attended the site and fitted all the stone work which slotted in perfectly and once painted you genuinely wouldn’t know the difference. All in all, top service, true professional at what he does and he will be first person I call if/when I need stone work done again in the future.
