Bruce and Sharon,

Thank you so much for installing and designing a beautiful pond and garden area for us. We are both really pleased with how everything turned out. Now all the pressure is on us to work out the rest of the landscaping to compliment the pond.

Thanks again

Kirkwood After Stone Patio and Walkway Landscape Design Near Ellicott City MD

Poole’s Stone and Garden has done a ton of work at our home over the years, most recently in April of 2016. They do an EXCELLENT job. Their attention to detail is impeccable. For us, they’ve done a large patio, stone walls, retaining walls, walkways, landscaping, and a few other things. We’ve received so many compliments on their work. Bruce and Sharon must be doing something right because they’ve basically had the same work crew in all the years we’ve know them. I’ve never seen guys work so hard. We would give them the highest recommendation possible!

After Stone Patios Redesign in Leesburg VA

We had a backyard that is very sloped and eroded due to the lack of grass, with a flagstone patio that had settled and was in disrepair. We were in the process of selling the house and we received many bad comments about the condition of the yard and I’m sure it turned away several prospective buyers. Being on a tight timeline Sharon was able to meet with me in a short time. I told her our circumstances, with the intent of repairing the damage to the patio and re-grading the yard. She took some notes and told me that the patio could not be salvaged and should be removed. Within a week, Sharon had provided us with a plan that included a regrade of the yard, laying of mulch, and much to my surprise, the construction of a new patio reusing the existing flagstone. The work was completed in a day and the result was fantastic. It turned out much better than I had imagined. We sold the house shortly after the work was completed and I’m sure the renovated backyard had a lot to do with it. Thank you Sharon and Pool’s Stone and Garden!

Stone Wall Fireplace Done by Poole's Stone and Garden in Bethesda MD

We contracted Poole’s Stone and Garden to redo our plain fireplace and surround it with stone and add a reclaimed barnwood mantel. They did a fabulous job, the stone work and attention to detail were incredible! The communication leading up to and during the work was great. The guys showed up every day on time or a little earlier, and finished each day by cleaning so we could still enjoy our space in the evening during the construction. We HIGHLY recommend Poole’s Stone and Landscaping!!!

Woodcock Testimonial- Stone Walkway and Patio Design Near Shepherdstown WV

My wife and I cannot begin to praise Poole’s Stone and Garden sufficiently to express our heartfelt appreciation for our “new” home. Yes, that is how we describe our 45 year old home now that we have had the Poole’s reconfigure our front newly designed stone entry, sidewalk, steps, retaining wall, front porch and greenery, even rainwater drainage. 

From the first contact with their office assistant, through the able assistance of Designer Sharon Poole (who even delightfully met with us at the stone supplier/provider) and excellent installation by their very own stonemason’s, landscapers and to our final review and wrap-up with Bruce Poole, who had the most wonderful “can do” attitude.

Woodcock - October 2015

We contacted Poole’s Stone and Garden about a water runoff issue we were having, building a retaining wall and a front walk way. From our first meeting with Sharon about the design and estimate to the finished project we were extremely satisfied. Bruce, Sharon and their employees were all so pleasant to work with. Very professional and knowledgeable. Not only were all our issues resolved they were done so in a beautiful way. We look forward to working with them again in the future on another project.

D. Young- August 2016

Poole’s Stone and Garden did a wonderful project at our last home several years ago. As soon as we unpacked boxes in our new home, we gave them a call. As before, we LOVE the finished project. The designs perfectly fit what we were imaging and went beyond. A perfect blend of listening to the client and applying creative design.
Their stonemason’s are amazingly skilled. And quite capable of the landscaping tasks of soil improvement, planting and finishing. Delightful to work with, professional, courteous attitudes, they also leave a clean work site at the end of the day. As before, we are thoroughly satisfied, and highly recommend them.

Prigen- June 2016

Nice people, beautiful work, excellent value. Challenging location was solved with elegance and grace. Planning on more projects with Poole.
