Green Ideas works extensively with natural stone and a quality selection of man-made products, available in a wide variety of sizes, styles, colours and textures. We help to determine placement and shape that accommodates the terrain and your budget, and work with you to select quality, beautiful materials suited to your home’s aesthetics.

Retaining Walls & Terraces

We work with the land when the land doesn’t work.

The less-than-level terrain found in many areas of Nova Scotia often restricts placement of gardens, patios, lawns, fences and other outdoor elements. Drainage can also be a concern due to heavily sloped areas. Green Ideas has extensive experience creating solutions for these problem areas. Through the addition or removal of material, held in place with carefully planned stone, concrete or wooden retaining walls, we can mold the land to create a functional, attractive space.

Pools, Patios & Pathways

Extend your living space.

Our installers have extensive experience and take great pride in the finished product. While it’s the surface that gets the most attention, the most important part of a stone patio is what’s underneath: We take special care to properly compact and stabilize the sub base to minimize settling and stone movement over time, ensuring that your patio is attractive today and for years to come.

Stone Stairways

Enjoy every corner of your property with ease.

Sloped terrain shouldn’t be seen as a dead end for hard-to-reach areas of your yard. Whether to enhance your home’s curb appeal, to provide an inviting approach to a backdoor, or required to grant comfortable access to steep or uneven terrain, Green Ideas has an answer. Working around the land’s natural contours, we use durable, attractive materials such as natural stone, interlocking brick and treated lumber to create beautiful and functional stairways and paths.
