My backyard is now one of a kind and I could not be happier with how it came out. I embedded lighting every 10 feet of wall in the toppers that highlight the wall at night. Truly a masterpiece and I couldn’t have done it without the molds I got from you guys! I guess this is one instance where the saying, "you get what you pay for", does not apply, I saved a fortune using your molds, which I’ll use to recoup my aching back!
My wife and I are really enjoying our new backyard. Your molds were a big part of the enjoyment. Loved bragging to friends and neighbors that I made the stone myself and the cost savings was great. The molds are easy to work with and seemed to hold up very well. Look forward to seeing the outcome and I'm still making stone for future projects.
Your company has always been very customer service oriented. I appreciate your help in the past and the product in general. Without it, I would still have stained, shag carpet with fleas... Lots of fleas.

I'd like to mention that in creating the pool and walls, a lot of thought went into what was going to look good on the face of both. I knew I wanted a cobblestone look but to use real cobblestones would have been impossible because of the thickness and the cost. I did a lot of searching on the internet and found your product and thought it would be perfect! My boyfriend thought I was crazy when I suggested using these because of the quantity we would need but I said it was the only thing that could work. We made them throughout the winter and by spring we had 500 which was enough for the pool surround. When that was complete we made the balance of what we needed for the walls. All together we made about 1000 stones. I think in total we spent about $200 for all the materials (molds, dyes and concrete). Other advantages we found was being able to create the colors needed with the dyes, being able to control the thickness of the stones and the ease of applying them... (even to a round structure). There's an old cobblestone wall that I drive by everyday on my way to work. And while working on this project I used to look at it and think "that's exactly how I want the walls to look when we're done". And sure enough they do!
Here are several examples of the projects we have completed for other people here in our county and surrounding counties of Mississippi.As the photos illustrate, we have made the stone and done the on-site work for the projects.We are also making stones for several people who are doing their own projects.
We were recently contacted by a major fencing company in our State and asked if we would be interested in working with them to provide the stone and the labor to make columns their customers need for fence installation.
When I began my Stone Mill stone and tile manufacturing business in February of 2009 I had no idea that I would be asked to install the stone for someone's project. But I have never refused a job or said, "no, I cannot do that".My response has always been , "if you will let me, I will do what you want". So far, each of these projects has been what my customers have asked for, and they were very pleased with the results.
I cannot believe that such a simple idea of making and selling stone has evolved into what I am doing here in my business. I hope others will enjoy seeing what they are interested in doing evolve into what has happened in what I am doing with my business.
