  • "Detail Stone completed three projects for me. I renovated a home in St. Paul and wanted my front walk (including a new stoop), patio and retaining wall to look as if was created when the home was built in 1932. These guys are truly craftsmen. Watching them work, hand selecting the right shape and size of each piece of stone for the walk, stoop, patio and retaining wall was very gratifying to me. I spent a lot of time finding the right subcontractors for my project. Detail Stone, was a great find."

  • "The Detail Stone team do an amazing job. They work well together and have a great work ethic. I had them build a stone serpentine wall, two light posts and stone steps to my front door. They also built a tiered stone wall in my back yard to replace a worn out timber wall. I would highly recommend Detail Stone to anyone with a project in mind requiring stone. They are highly skilled at what they do and will do a great job for you. I'm extremely happy with what they built for me."

  • "Detail Stone has transformed my little house and yard with their beautiful stonework. I had a dream and vision - they made it come true! Our street has a lot of foot traffic as there is a neighborhood ice cream store 2 blocks away. I catch people stopping in front of my house and pointing to the stone wall all the the time. When I am working in the yard, they stop and tell me that they brought their parents, in-laws, siblings or friends by to see the wall."

  • "Working with Detail Stone was the most wonderful and easy transaction we have ever had, and this includes 35 years and two old homes. They follow through on what they say, they are honest, they easily and openly communicates, shows up/finishes the job when they say they will, and they stand by their work. They were available after the job was finished for our questions!! All of these things seem to be lost on many of todays contractors so it was refreshing to find it still exists in Detail Stone. We can't say enough great things about Detail Stone. You won't be disappointed in their work. They are wonderful and the work is excellent!"

  • "We have been just thrilled with the "driveway worthy" patio Detail Stone installed in our backyard last year - we should have hired them years ago! Now we have not only a functional parking space but a beautiful patio to enjoy for years to come. Detail Stone was a pleasure to work with, efficient, friendly, knowledgeable, practical, and the work is of exceptional quality and value. They were done in a week."

    Karin Roof
  • "Detail Stone does beautiful work at a reasonable price and does it quickly. I think about a week and a half passed from the time they came to discuss the project till the day it was finished. The crew installed the rock patio and two retaining walls in only two days. I have recommended Detail Stone to two friends and they have both been thrilled with the results. I look forward to the next project -- and how often can you say that?!"

    Kim Craven Eagan
  • "We had the Detail Stone crew cover our front step with blue stone and replace the concrete walk with cobblestone pavers. The work was done during one of the hottest stretches of the summer but the guys completed the job on schedule. This is even more impressive considering that we requested a change of the design while they were halfway through the project. They handled the changes professionally and the step and walk turned out great. I strongly recommend Detail Stone and will use them again in the future."

    Jon Jacobson
  • "We had Detail Stone put in 40 ft. of steps/walls in our front yard. Couldn't be happier with the outcome. In addition to the excellent work, Detail Stone adjusted their schedule to fit us in about 10 days earlier than our initial install date to accommodate a change in our plans. I would highly recommend Detail Stone."

    Rob Shull
  • "We are very happy with the new walkway and steps designed and installed for us by Detail Stone. We continue to get many compliments on the beautiful addition to our property. We highly recommend Detail Stone."

    Bob Mazanec
  • "We needed a new patio and were having trouble decided on material. Scott helped us out by suggesting limestone from Orijen Stone. He brought us samples and it was an immediate no-brainer! Scott, Ben, and Martin operate the way you wish all contractors would operate: diligent, punctual and respectful. Plus they do fantastic work! It's been a couple years and we still love the finished product more each day. We would (and will) have them back in a heartbeat."

    Neal Duncanson Mendota Heights
  • "Detail Stone did a FABULOUS job!  From start to finish, it was low-or-no stress, with simple and easy to understand quotation(s), as well as easy access to products and samples.  Scott provided many references and was extremely professional every step of the way.   We added a few more options, which he and the crew took on without missing a beat. After the job, follow-up was great, and he remained conscientious well after the work was paid for and done. We would use Detail Stone again without hesitation and I am happy to be a reference for such a quality man and quality company!"

  • "Scott and his team built a retaining wall in our backyard and also redid our front steps to coordinate with the back wall - the level of professionalism and the beautiful incredible work they did was amazing! The wall and front steps are like a work of art and it has totally enhanced the beauty of our house! They were incredible & we were thrilled with their work! They got both jobs done in a very timely manner and our family was never inconvenienced."

    Jill Weis St. Paul
  • "Detail Stone was wonderful to work with.  They had many pictures and addresses of  work that we could look at.  We shared our ideas for the look we wanted and they were able to turn that into a reality.  They paid attention to everything we said from the colors of the stone to the curves we wanted.  They arrived when they said they would and were very particular about their work.  The whole crew was great.  Whatever we asked they responded positively.  It turned out absolutely beautiful and I highly recommend Design Stone. "

    Linda Savage Eagan
  • "We couldn't have been happier with the results!  The patio looks great and is quite different than what we originally thought we wanted.  They are patient listeners, but then offers suggestions that end up being improvements that we didn't even think to consider.  Detail Stone is honest and trustworthy.  The crew is always there when they say the will be ... no waiting around for a window of arrival. "

    Liz Hewitt St. Paul
  • "Detail Stone was very responsive to our ideas and we ended up with a patio we absolutely love.  We spend as many evenings on the patio as we can on summer nights.  It is a great improvement and we LOVE driving by our own yard to take a look at what a difference it made to our back yard.  We would hire Detail Stone again, in a flash! "

    Susan Schumann Apple Valley
  • "Detail Stone came out and was very detailed in their approach vs. others that I bid. They had rationale for their recommendations down to their recommendation to go with a smooth stone given a neighbor's nearby tree. It was a complicated project that they really simplified for us. They worked us into their schedule and the team worked long days to get the project done in a couple of days. We are very happy with the results."

    Nancy Pratt Minneapolis
  • "We had Detail Stone cover our steps with pavers and replace our sidewalk in front of our house. The quality of the work was impeccable! The workmen were very professional, polite and meticulous. Everything was cleaned up to perfection.  We have had SO many people comment on how beautiful it looks and how greatly it has improved the curb appeal!  Well worth it!  I highly recommend Detail Stone for any job. I rarely write reviews, but these guys are great!"

    Jan Alswager Apple Valley
  • "Detail Stone did a great job on our patio walk fairy garden and boulder wall.  This was a major project that involved excavation and foundation repair, before they could begin work.  Every detail of their work was impeccable. We have seen two winters since and it all looks just as good as the day it was installed."

    Carl R Apple Valley
  • "BEAUTIFUL patio with precision radiuses, perfect joints and great pattern, on time, on budget, great skill and knowledge of stonemasonry, thorough understanding of the importance of correct soil/base prep for longevity. Great to work with. Superb value, can't beat the quality these guys produce!"

    Roger T. St. Paul
  • "Detail Stone built a beautiful patio for us a couple of years ago and we had them back last summer to build another at a different level.  The team are artists with all kinds of rock and pavers - they were able to use scraps from my yard to build a retaining wall for one end of the patio by carefully placing the stones in just the right position.  I'm very happy with the results and if I ever have a need for any type of landscaping involving a wall or stonework - I'll call Detail Stone.  I can't recommend them more!"

    Andy A. St. Paul
  • "Detail Stone did a bluestone overlay on our concrete front steps which turned out great.  They pays close attention to detail and addressed all are needs. I would recommend Detail Stone to anybody."

    Randy M. St. Paul
  • "Detail Stone did our patio with fire pit and seating wall and we couldn't be happier.  They are true craftsman and the quality of work is second to none.  We've enjoyed many good times on this patio over the past couple of years and it looks as good as the day it was installed!"

    Erik R. St. Paul
  • "Detail Stone did a stone project for us in 2012. We replaced an old deck with a terraced stone patio and retaining walls. It is beautiful. I called several companies to give me estimates and Detail Stone stood out from the beginning. They listened to what we needed and made it happen. The crew are exceptional craftsmen who really care and we could not be happier with the results."

    Mary K. Minneapolis
  • "Detail Stone put in a stone retaining wall that completely changed the front of my house and increased the curb appeal in Lake Elmo. They were able to transform some relatively general wishes and  wants into something that really made a huge difference."

    Dan F. Lake Elmo
  • "The Detail Stone team recently helped my husband and I with a backyard project at our home in Mendota Heights. They listened to our ideas and complimented them in a wonderful way. They were professional, courteous, and easy to work with. We are very happy with the results."

    Mary Beth Mendota Heights
  • "Detail Stone is very experienced in the stone business. The work crew can really get the job done and each day the work site was relatively straighten up.  At the end of the job all was cleaned up and looking great.  During the task, I got tired watching them move dirt and place stones.  They are fast and complete.  We were very happy with the time it took and the brief disruption in our yard. Over all I highly recommend Detail Stone for your landscaping project.  The quality and experience will stand out from day one.  You will get a good estimate and great suggestion to make your project look great and fit the area of your yard the way it should."

    John P. St. Paul
  • "Detail Stone did a beautiful stone wall along the slope of our front yard plus a hand laid circular stone patio and  sitting bench. The color of the stone patio and bench blended well with the existing sidewalk and steps. The sixty foot hand laid stone wall always draw positive comments. When we decided to redo the front landscape, we really could not find someone who could do quality work within our budget limits, but Detail Stone was a visionary and able to give us a design that was beautiful and affordable.  We highly recommend Detail Stone.  You won't be disappointed with the service Detail Stone provides, from the initial meeting to the completion of the project."
