NW Hardscape Solutions, Inc.
Northwest Hardscape Solutions, Inc. offers a unique and specialized collection of services, technical know-how and creative input to professionals involved in creating natural environments.
It is through this collaborative fusion of efforts that Northwest Hardscape Solutions, Inc. is able to assist Landscape Architects, Designers and Contractors to facilitate their ongoing efforts and to assist in the achievement of their creative vision.
The most interesting attribute of Northwest Hardscape Solutions, Inc. is in its implementation: a fully mobile, on-site capability-in addition to an established studio and sound business relationships with local stone suppliers.
Rocks no longer require traditional transport in order to be finished-they can be drilled and cored in place, stones can be masoned, cut, split, and sculpted at the jobsite; basins can be formed and finished in place. Stones can be finished with a vast range of textures or designs and signs can be carved after the stone has been placed and site work is complete.
Northwest Hardscape Solutions, Inc. offers an amazingly flexible and efficient means of achieving the creative goals of Landscape Professionals.
There is no small amount of irony in the idea of directing nature-it will ultimately do as it pleases despite our best and most persistent efforts.
And yet-among all of the glass and steel buildings, miles of strip malls and blacktop-all around us is evidence of the wise and sensible application of the built environment in harmony with nature. In stark contrast to so much of the built environment around us are the garden sanctuaries and park settings that allow us to find a moment-a quiet moment-to get away, to wind down, breathe, relax and find ourselves.
My involvement in the process of creating beauty in the built, natural environment is a satisfaction. As a sculptor, I can tell you that working with stone is one of life's secret pleasures-it is both a craft and an art form.
Sculpting stone contains an historic utility, while at the same time is an ultimate form of expressive freedom, with the possibility of an enduring contribution to a uniquely human conversation that originated before the beginnings of recorded time.
Stone, water and plant life-elements of nature-directed to a beautiful, natural, human purpose.
