Project Description

This major project was undertaken in Magog Township, where undisturbed nature serves as a backdrop to human occupancy, providing both mineral and plant treasures, to the great delight of the client. Slate, this noble anthracite stone, links the outdoor spaces while assuming an undeniably aesthetic function. This stone comes in various forms, including sheets and strips for low walls, as well as slabs and gravel for patios and pathways. The outdoor spaces were designed along with the building plans so that the landscaped area would be an integral part of the premises rather than an imposed add-on.
