Safety issues to keep in mind for your Bethesda, MD fire pits and fireplaces range from maintenance around fire pits and fireplaces to the proper way to extinguish a fire. Fire pits should always be at least 10 feet away from any structure or combustible surface, and it’s important to pick up leaves and other such materials that have gathered around fire pits and fireplaces; also be sure to remove any nearby overhanging branches. When using fire pits and fireplaces, always be prepared for an emergency ahead of time; have a container of water and garden hose nearby before starting the fire. When extinguishing a fire, spread ashes over the larger surface area and let them cool before pouring a container of water over the ashes; monitor the area before going back inside. All embers should be extinguished before you leave the area. Never leave an outdoor fire unattended.

The retaining wall and paver patio was tastefully blended into the back of our house and the contours and seams were impeccable.... The field stone terrace garden plots were truly a work of art and science... Thanks again for such a beautiful job.

We are thrilled with our new stream and pond. We waited a long time, did a lot of research and talked to many landscapers about this work. Although we were expecting your work to be good, it turned out better than our expectations. Your attitude, as well as your crew's, was professional and upbeat...
