Canyon Landscape and Masonry is a landscape construction company emphasizing high quality stone masonry to build distinctive landscapes for the Southwest and beyond. We strive to integrate the landscape with the home by creating desirable outdoor spaces and bringing stone elements indoors.
Canyon Landscape and Masonry offers high quality interior and exterior stonework customized to fit the need of the client.
We combine traditional stone masonry techniques and principles with resourcefulness and efficiency in our stonework. In addition to natural stone, we use complementary materials such as brick or concrete to build patios, paths, steps, retaining walls, bridges, benches, columns, water features, fire-pits, fireplaces and more.
From initial grading to finish planting, we maintain a close relationship with the client to ensure ultimate success of the project.
