Stonescapes Inc. has been in business in northern Vermont for 22 years. Fred and Doug personally work on every project to ensure the highest quality every time. We chose to work with field Stone, quarried stone, and other related products because of the satisfaction we derive from them. We are always amazed and pleased to look at what a pile of stone or pallets of material and our labor produce. From small patio and stone wall projects to major custom masonry hardscapes, we take great pride in every job completed.

Our goal is to exceed our client’s expectations. We enjoy the relationships we build as much as the projects. For more information or to get a quote, send email to info@stonescapevt.com
