Exquisite Natural Stone Landscaping

Ambrose is proud of the natural stone landscaping completed for the elderly and the injured. The custom-designed landscaping ideas provide maximum access with minimal risk, such as:

  • Beautiful wheelchair ramps with textured stone for sure footing
  • Pondless streams and waterfalls to eliminate insect risk and drowning hazards
  • Stone landscaping among beautiful natural streams and plants

The plants remain an inviting height all year round for the youngest and the oldest. The grounds are even accessible to wheelchairs, if that’s something that you or your family need. Consider natural stone landscaping ideas that include pathways, trails and labyrinths that everyone can maneuver through easily to enjoy the natural beauty.

Natural Stone Landscaping Ideas that Stand the Tests of Time

Ambrose Landscapes caters to high-end homeowners who are environmentally sensitive and aware of their bio-footprint. At the same time, your budget and your goals are held in the highest esteem. This means you won’t receive a reinforced wall where a dry stack wall will do; you won’t get ponds or streams that could pose a risk to animal or people safety.

You will, however, always find natural rock stones landscaping projects that are the safest possible options and rock landscaping gardens that work for all age groups. Local, regional and state laws are followed strictly so that you, as a homeowner, are always covered. For homeowners who plan ahead, you can get:

  • Improved stormwater management
  • Beautiful new landscapes surrounding your home
  • Increased value, safety and functionality
