Stonewall, Inc

Stonewall Inc.
Country: USA
Stonewall Inc. chose USA as our theme as we are very proud to be born and raised in the United States of America.  We also chose USA because of the type of work we do, which is more fitting than other countries.  We will turn a flat space on concrete floor into rolling hill and natural boulder outcroppings as if nature placed theme there, along with mulch and plantings to soften the bold statement of large 4,000 – 6,000 pound boulders (Yes, real boulders!).  Our landscape at the show will be simple so that everyone that walks through can envision it in their backyard.  We will be using boulders from Virginia, Minnesota and our neighboring state, Wisconsin.  Stonewall Inc., making American great by retaining our earth one boulder at a time.
