"Stonescapes LLC transformed our property from a neglected, suburban eyesore into an elegant oasis. We approached the team with loose and poorly articulated concepts, and they articulated concepts and enhanced our vision with encyclopedic and artistic sensibility. George, Bjorn and Josh also helped us create the best plan for our budget. They were flexible and receptive to modifications and even during the installation. The whole process was actually fun and surprisingly quick , since we had their undivided attention every day from the beginning to the end of the project. Their arsenal of tools and equipment helped too.The guys were capable and extremely professional, but more importantly were trustworthy and extremely nice. Our dog is the best judge of character and he was always happy to see them in the morning. I can't recommend Stonescapes LLC enough. In our many renovations the landscaping was the most drastic enhancement. Thanks you for making our home a sanctuary of stone and flowers.

"We were thankful for such a successful project at our home. While we had high expectations from the beginning, the end result simply exceeded all of our expectations. The precision, beauty and artistry of all the stonework transformed our property.
And if that were not enough, dealing with Bjorn, George and Josh was the most professional business experience we have had in the last 25 years.
Every detail was attended to. Bjorn's responses to every communication was timely and thorough. Everything happened just as it was stated it would, and when it would. All on budget.
The professionalism and service was over the top. The only surprises were all positive surprises"

"A five-star review goes out to Bjorn, George and Josh for the amazing dry stack stone retaining wall and landscaping just completed. They were easy to work with from the beginning design phase to a beautifully crafted retaining wall. As an engineer, I was very impressed with the attention to detail as the wall was being built from the footing through the dry stacking of stone to the cap stone placement. I was particularly impressed with the skill maintaining the batter through two large radii at each end of the retaining wall.
For the landscaping requirements, low maintenance was desired using evergreen plants and perennials for color. George accompanied me to the nursery to select and later install his recommendations.
Many compliments were received by passersby during the build and they continue to this day.
These guys are good!"

"Bjorn performed both indoor and outdoor tiling projects for our home. His work demonstrates a combination of artistry and technical skill, resulting in outcomes far exceeding our expectations. =He communicates well, is easy to work with and shows up for work as promised. Given the stellar quality of his work I highly recommend him, and am prepared to discuss our positive experience with Bjorn."

“My husband and I give Bjorn Muten and his team of stone artisans, 5 stars. We live on an Island in New Hampshire and we now have completed our beautiful lake home with the natural look of granite stone pathways, patios and edged gardens! Add to this image a gently sloping staircase into the water and a lovely stone fire pit and you have the picture of what Bjorn along with his team created for us last summer at our home on Melody Island, Lake Winnipesaukee.
After initiating the project with several local contractors (they came to see our site, but never called us back), we finally found a truly satisfying contracting experience with “BAM”.
It was right away, during his visit in April that Bjorn not only walked us through his vision, but also gave us a quote, and even secured a barge and a local loam guy to work with before he left, that we knew this was finally going to work. We decided the dates and as he took his leave, Bjorn promised an e-mail with the itemized bill; a rendering of what we had talked about; and a work-plan of what they would accomplish when they returned in late June. The e-mail, as promised, arrived in a timely fashion.
Bjorn’s professionalism and that of his team never disappointed. As the week progressed, we watched as they brought the vision together, even offering little add-ons that we had not requested or actually even dreamed of. The presence of a landscape architect on the team is a real incentive to contract with this company. During the course of their time with us, our gardens also received loving care with new plantings. Under George’s informed gaze, we chose the right plants to bring the stone paths to a finished look.
We went on to enjoy our new look for the entire summer and know we will enjoy it for years to come. Our beautiful home has gotten the tasteful, natural surrounds that it deserves and we could not be more certain that the wait was worth it.”

“We had a great experience working with BAM Stone and Design throughout the entire project. The design phase felt collaborative in nature with Bjorn and George turning our general ideas into conceptual drawings. We used the drawings to finetune the project and make sure the various spaces worked together in a functional way. It was fun to watch those concepts turn into reality. The results were stunning and we couldn’t be happier.”

“From our initial contact with B.A.M.Stone & Design, we suspected we were about to partner with skilled artists/craftsmen to develop plans for our stone patio, outdoor cooking grill and front entry porch steps. Your precise preliminary drawings were 3D sketches which brought these projects to life! We're very pleased to share with you and your prospective clients, that two years later, we continue to marvel at how your artistry has added great functionality and low maintenance beauty to our home. “

"Our home has grown in both beauty and value thanks to the creativity, mastery and dedicated hard work of Bjorn and BAM Stone. We have appreciated his work and have had them complete multiple projects at our house. A pleasure to work with--professional, efficient, collaborative and talented!!

"B.A.M. Stone & Design did some incredible work. We had originally got a quote for a local company and were blown out of the water by the high quote. Not only did B.A.M. come back with a much more competitive price but the level of work was something to be seen. We have since received compliment after compliment on our Goshen stone sitting wall that B.A.M. installed around our new pool this summer. The attention to detail and professionalism by all the skilled craftsmen involved was out of this world. My wife and I can't wait to find another project for B.A.M. to come out and work on this summer."
