It’s easy to fall in love with stone. Especially granite. Think about it: from kitchen counter tops to outdoor steps to the border around a garden, granite is a beautiful piece of the earth that turns into a design element desired by so many.

As the folks at Swenson Granite know, this eye-catching stone isn’t just for looks. Granite is a strong and long-lasting material that can protect your landscape, withstand the elements and ultimately, save you money in the long run.


We turn to the experts at Swenson Granite because they’ve been in the business for well over a hundred years, knowing very well the dedication and service it takes to earn business, mastermind a hardscape, and provide quality products that seem hand-picked from a quarry. Actually “from our quarry to your home” is a phrase found on the Swenson website. (Of course, Stone Solutions takes on both residential and commercial projects with granite from Swenson.)


Since winter is fast approaching, one of the ways homeowners in Maine (and all of New England) use granite is to edge their driveway to protect from the repetitive dropping and scraping of a snow plow. Implementing this landscaping technique protects the life of your asphalt.


Of course there is still time to squeeze in other outdoor stone projects before winter sets in. Granite curbing, fireplaces, fire pits, patios, walkways, posts and signs can all be installed now, so when the snow melts next spring, you can simply enjoy your yard. After all, the purpose of a transformation is to increase livability.
