Last summer, my husband and I had a vision of the formal, yet inviting backyard living area. We called Joel Forsberg at English Stone and found Joel to be as excited about our vision as we! We were immediately impressed with Joel's knowledge and creativty and loved his collaborative style when it came to sketching out our plan. Our vision is BIG and our budget modest, so equally impressive was Joel's willingness to work up a plan that could be staged over time. Stage One, a large, unique blue stone patio, was completed last summer on time and on budget. The patio is beautiful and quality work with which we are very happy! We cannot wait to engage in Stage Two, fireplace and pizza oven (!) this spring.
