Our History

After working 15 years in landscape construction sharpening his skills in construction and design, Blake realized that working with natural stone was his passion. In 2009, Rustic Impressions was established. Working with different stone and various installation techniques allows each project to be uniquely customized to our client's vision. Whether it is modern, contemporary, tradition, rustic - stone may be the perfect choice for you.

Natural stone has incredible creative potential and with every job we work on we bring that potential to life. This raw material is not only functional and durable it also has a beauty no other organic material can match. Blended with wood, metal and other landscaping, natural stone can be magnificent.

Materials used on each project are hand chosen. Our stone comes from local quarries or a blend from various North American or International quarries. Personal relationships with suppliers helps Rustic Impressions ensure that the customer is receiving nothing but the best.

What our customers are saying…

Susan, Dundas, Ontario

It was a wonderful experience working with Blake's expertise and his artistic ideas when designing a stone wall in my kitchen. I had the basic plan and Blake came back with different suggestions that added to the overall beauty of the finished product. Having Blake and Corey in my house was extremely comfortable and they were quick and efficient. Blake then helped design my backsplash with a new concept that even the stone suppliers loved. I would highly recommend Rustic Impressions to anyone!
