Add Tranquility to your Backyard

with a New England Fieldstone Water Feature


The cascading hills, granite outcroppings, sudden streams and beautiful waterfalls of the White Mountains were only available while on vacation to this homeowner. Now with this unique water feature they have a smaller version in their own backyard. The inspiration came from frequent visits to beautiful North Conway, NH. The homeowners wanted to recreate the calming natural ambiance of their favorite vacation spot.


Mike Fontaine of Fontaine Brick & Tile created this feature using a mixture of New England Granite and New England Fieldstone. This combination was made to look as if you stumbled upon a stream in the White Mountains. This feature includes not only a waterfall and stream but also a unique echo chamber that enhances the natural sound of flowing water.

Using New England Fieldstone/Granite boulders and stones, you can create your own unique oasis. The elegance and natural colors of New England Natural Stone will add lasting beauty to any project you can imagine. The addition of a water feature can make any space the focal point of your yard. Escaping to a calming serene environment after a long hard day can be a real boost to the mind and body.
