The Advantages of a “Green” Patio
All rock is mined local and hand split making us a 95% green company. We only use machinery to pull and load rock in the pits (all located in Manitoba) and transport to our Winnipeg retail location at 43 Cordite Road.
This is a volcanic stone so the carbon is stored in it forever – unlike concrete products which uses calcium carbonate or limestone in a processed form that is highly pollutive.
We install the product by hand. It will not break down like other products. In fact the longer it stays installed the more natural it appears. We use 1/4 down to install flagstone – this provides the ability for water to drain giving it the flexibility so it does not break down. It is also perfect for our excessive winters and summers. The cracks can be filled with mosses, short flowers or herbs providing a completely natural look.
The Advantages of a “Green” Waterfall
Available in many colors to choose from – we build 100% natural waterfalls that provide many advantages for you and the planet.
We use mosses and plants to purify the water keeping it completely clear to the bottom to see. It will provide a safe haven for local wildlife. Song birds, chipmunks, ducks, frogs and dragon flies fill the backyard. The frogs and the dragon flies make short work of an mosquitoes in the area.
