Thoms Bros Landscaping Creator and Keeper of Fine Landscapes

StoneMakers and Decorative Concrete

StoneMakers by Thoms Bros. uses a cutting edge process of creating durable hardscapes from solid monolithic concrete. 

By using this technique, Thoms Bros. can create a time-worn and naturally distressed look, thereby enhancing the natural appeal of the landscape. The concrete is not only visually appealing but stronger than real stone construction. 

Concrete is poured, carved and textured to look just like real rock and in as little as a few hours, ordinary concrete is transformed into a striking focal point that is ready for a lifetime of use.

StoneMakers can be used for: 

• Retaining Walls 
• Flat Concrete Work (walkways, patios, etc.) 
• Water Features 
• Outdoor Living Areas 
• Sea Walls 
• Existing vertical services (i.e houses, garages, etc.) 
• Interior Applications (fireplaces, walls, etc.)

Retaining Walls

StoneMakers technique for building retaining walls has been carefully developed over years experience with concrete. The finished product is durable, affordable, and customizable to any yard. It is unlike any other method available. Retaining walls can be created with round type fieldstone, irregular shape rock or ledge rock.

Walkways & Patios 

Our StoneMakers custom walkways and patios harmonize with any home’s exterior landscapes. Our curvaceous designs reflect how nature would have a created, looked, felt and lasted. Our typical concrete pads range from 4-5 inches thick, with a minimum of 3,500 PSI (Pounds per Square Inch) concrete exterior floor mix. We include rebar or wire mesh reinforcement which makes all our products durable and permanent.

All of our flatwork sits on a minimum of 10″ crushed stone base to give the sub-base the drainage it needs. We can create flatwork shapes that are irregular (flagstone) and dimensional (i.e. Bluestone) with as many colors as nature creates.

Other Services 

StoneMakers Waterfalls

Waterfalls are a more advanced and creative service offered by StoneMakers by Thoms Bros. These can be designed and customized to fit any project. StoneMakers has even created a light weight SGFRC mixture that allows waterfalls to be added to pools without straining the foundation. In most cases, the project is completed and running in the same day.

  • Seawalls
