Design & Construction

How do you like to enjoy your property?

Do you entertain? Where are the best views? Our design team listens to our clients and provides creative and functional landscape solutions to each diverse property we work with. We believe in maintaining and respecting the natural beauty of Muskoka.

Our client’s pre-construction wish list often includes:

  • Custom Spas
  • Sports Courts
  • Pathways
  • Outdoor Kitchens
  • Water Features
  • Masonry Walls
  • Stone Pizza Ovens
  • Firepits
  • Putting Greens

With the above wish list in mind Rockscape Design develops a landscape concept plan specific for each project and then provides a corresponding budget. Our pricing model is transparent and the provides flexibility to modify the landscape along the way with additional inspirations as required.

Oversized granite steps, tight joint flagstone and natural boulders are hand selected and precision installed. For many clients, this is the time when we also build firepits, swim spas, water features and recreational sports courts.
