Manufactured Stone Products
In co-operation with several Canadian manufacturers, SALIX can provide a complete range of manufactured stone products including all shapes, sizes and colours of interlocking brick; curbing, retaining wall systems, and patio slabs are also available. Our sources of materials are the oldest and most established suppliers of manufactured stone products in Ontario.
In conjunction with several quarry operators in North America, SALIX supplies a wide range of natural stone products including: red and black lava rock from Colorado, red granite from Quebec, white cap rock and limestone from the Muskokas, ledge rock from Owen Sound, and several other unique specialty stones.
Some of our new products are: 8” thick, 5’x5’ irregular flagstone which is used for walks, steps, and retaining walls. Our natural stone products are available on short notice; if ordered early in the week, most products are shipped the same week.
Water Features and Ponds
You probably figured out that we create and build works of art, each one being unique in presentation and design. Each water feature that we create is unique in its design and build. We do not take a cookie cutter approach to water feature building. We take a completely different approach: we truly believe we are artists and one of our mediums is water. On the canvas of your yard we combine our superior knowledge of horticulture, stone and water to make truly unique water feature!
Every pond we build will be unique and beautiful. It will enhance the overall contour and lay of the land around your estate. It will also help with site drainage and watershed. It can be used as a source for your home irrigation system. The overall design of the pond will be accented with plants, trees and natural stone to make your pond into a work of art! We also specialize in transforming existing ponds back into natural wonders!
The effects of the water flowing freely off of rocks as well as bouncing off of others bring a sense of peace and tranquility.
