Think Lawn Safety for Your Kids and Pets

While Alliance Stone specializes in landscape materials for your yard, we want to encourage you to think about the safety of your lawn for your children and pets.

Stuck in a Winter Rut? Start Planning for Spring!

In all honesty, this winter season has been quite dull. It has rained more days than not, leaving most of us feeling soggy inside and out. The doldrums of a dreary winter can often be lifted by looking forward and planning for spring. The spring season is a season of anticipation and renewal. Here in Georgia, we are blessed with moderately warm spring seasons that bring forth beautiful flowering trees and plants, sunshine, and warmer temperatures that allow us to get outside.

Whichever category you fall into, there’s always a new project that can make the start of a year exciting.

Gravel for Septic System

Of all the things on your home’s property, the septic tank is the one that you want to draw the least amount of attention to. In fact, the less attention it gets, the better it is because that means it is working correctly. Yet, having a septic system is necessary unless you are on a sewer system. If your property relies on a septic system, disguising the system is likely a priority.

Create an Outdoor Space For Your Family

Home is where the heart is. It is also the place where you and your family spend the most time together in the evenings, during the weekends, and during the holiday seasons.
