Custom Patios  by Sticks and Stones of NC - 919-427-0820

Over the last seven years, our family has hired Garrison Scott of Sticks & Stones of NC not once but twice to build patios & stone walls for us. In our first house, we hired Garrison to build a freeform patio. We were so happy with the results that when we built our new house years later, he was the first person we turned to for more stonework.

After just having completed the building of a new home, my husband & I were at a loss for what to do with the clean slate that, much to our dismay, was our overwhelmingly empty backyard. We toured Garrison's beautiful display garden several times to get ideas & to see firsthand the wide array of stone selections & designs that he's used in his work. His display garden is truly one-of-a-kind and you can tell his heart just pours into his own personal stonework & landscaping. We had no doubt that this quailty workmanship & passion would translate into something beautiful for our own home. This same passion pours into the work he does for his clients & we couldn't be happier with our resulting patio & natural stone seating walls.

While we knew we wanted to hire the "big work" out to Garrison, my husband & I also have an interest in the do-it-yourself aspect of landscaping. We took advantage of Garrison's hands-on stonework classes and are now well on our way to creating our own stacked stone wall paradise in our backyard.

We would highly recommend Garrison's fine workmanship to anyone and look forward to working with him again in the future.

Skilled Stonework  by Sticks and Stones of NC - 919-427-0820


Garrison Scott of Sticks and Stones is a TRUE STONE ARTISAN! Along with his highly skilled crew, my yard was transformed from a muddy "construction disaster" into a suburban oasis! Before he began his work, I had one very lonely sugar maple tree in the middle of my front yard. Soon after they went to work i had two beautiful stone planters as well as a meandering stone pathway that curves throughout the lawn, leading to a magnificent stone bench. This bench is now the focal point of my landscape. Not only did he hand pick my stone, but he oversaw the entire project. Everyone was very professional and paid close attention to detail. Garrison and his crew are a true creative asset to the Raleigh area. I have already recommended Garrison to my envious neighbors and will only use "Sticks and Stones" for any future landscape improvements, no matter how large or small! Thanks for making my landscape breathtaking!

Custom Fireplace  Example  by Sticks and Stones of NC - 919-427-0820


A Few years back, we decided to make the investments to upgrade and 'beautify' our 30+ year old home. Sticks and Stones has been an important and highly enjoyable part of our home improvements.

We previously had the common wood deck with screened-in porch. We were disappointed with the significant matineance require to keep the wood deck looking nice. Having seen pictures of stone patios, we decided that we would investigate a patio, hoping that stone would enhance the view from our newly added sunroom. That's when Sticks and Stones became part of our 'family'.

Garrison Scott came to our home, walked around our backyard (which was a huge mud pit at the time), listened to our ideas and you could see his eyes light up with the possiblities. He presented some thoughts of his own and suggested we visit his 'backyard' to view some options. We weren't quite sure what to expect, but were wonderfully surprised as we wandered through the various stone structures and walkways, all beautifully blended with a landscape that was very close to our own (without the mounds of construction dirt!). It made it easy for us to select the 'look' we wanted. Garrison visited with us a few more times, and presented us with design sketches, material choices and construction options that he beleived would compliment our new outdoor space. It was exactly what we wanted so he and his crew went to work. they quickly proceeded to turn those ideas into a stunning stone wall and patio area that far exceeded our expectations. It blends beautifully with our home and is the perfect extension of our sunroom -- the views are enjoyable regardless of whether you are sitting inside or out.

We were so pleased with our patio and natural stone wall that we decided to tackle another larger change.

We asked Sticks and Stones to offer suggestions for altering our living room fireplace. Again, Garrison recommended the perfect solution and the result is another beautiful improvement for our home. We started with the fireplace that was brick, surrounded by a heavy wood trim. After the wood trim was stripped completely away, Garrison crafted a dry stack stone fireplace with stone mantel and hearth. Emphasis must be placed on the word "crafted" as Garrison picked through the hugh piles of stone stacked in our living room (carfully piled on plywood) and artfully selected, sized and chiseled and placed every stone into postition. Again, the results have exceeded our hopes; our stone fireplace is another masterpiece for our home.

For both of these projects, Sticks and Stones provided us with design ideas and guided us through the materials selection process. Their personnel performed work in a timely, professional manner with the highest possible quality standards. Just as important, when they were done, there was no evidence of the contruction site; no debris, no trampled yard, no broken bits; they even vacuumed the living room carpeting after the fireplace was complete!

Clearly, we highly recommend Sticks and Stones from end-to-end.

Stone Walkway  by Sticks and Stones of NC - 919-427-0820


For years, I had a problem with standing water on my sidewalk. It was more like a pond if we had a downpour. Sticks and Stones no only eliminated the problem but i was and still am in awe when I see how beautiful they made the entrance to my house and business.

The entire project included removal of the old concrete, new walk, plants, mulch was completeed in two days and within my budget of $1900.00.

I can't wait for my next project.
