We have been building custom stone walls, steps, patios, walkway, waterfalls, fireplaces, pillars and more in the Minneapolis area since 1997 and in Massachusetts from 1990-1997 . All our work is directly supervised by the owner and professional stone mason Joel Forsberg. We treat every customer with the utmost respect and courtesy. Our desire is that each customer is completely thrilled with the end result of their project.
I have only good things to say about English Stone as a company, as people and about the quality of their work. Joel was very professional, knowledgeable and great to work with. He came out the beginning of April of the year we wanted our patio installed to discuss my design ideas for our patio and give us a quote. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted, but Joel's knowledge of design and masonry helped to tweak the design for function and beauty. We scheduled to have them to come out in mid-July of that summer. That spring was a particularly rainy spring and early summer, so as the summer progressed, I thought there was no way they would start my project on the Monday morning we had scheduled back in April. But to my amazement, they were at my house on the exact day they were scheduled to come (I don't know how they pulled that off!) They estimated our project would take 2-3 days. By the end of 2 days, they were finished. They two main men who worked on our project were very skilled and worked HARD! My husband and I were so pleased with how everything turned out and English Stone is one of the best companies we have ever hired to do work for our house. This summer I emailed Joel to either buy another stone to replacement one with a corner crack. Within a week someone came and replaced the stone...no charge. Love this Company!

In addition to being talented and an incredibly hard worker, Joel is a joy to work with. He is consistently pleasant, patient, conscientious and creative. He gave us an excellent price and completed our project - a gorgeous stone retaining wall - in far less time than we ever anticipated. We highly recommend Joel and English Stone.

Joel and his crew did a fantastic job creating our new walkway and front steps. They literally transformed the front entry of our house. We have received many compliments from the neighbors. We couldn't be happier with results and Joel and crew made the project so easy. Just wish we had called Joel sooner!

Joel Forsberg (English Stone) is the best around! Joel has done steps, a walkway, patio, and fireplace at our current and previous homes and my sister's home. Each project has turned out better than we could've imagined. He is a true artist and his reasonable prices, quick turnaround and integrity is unmatched. We wouldn't hire anyone else for stone work. Not to mention, he's a super nice guy. Next project...the driveway!

Joel and his brother completely rebuilt our paved steps and repaired our patio. A different contractor had done the original work. But English Stone gave it new life. The work was excellent, on time and at a very fair rate. Let English Stone complete your project.

There are very few subcontractors that our company uses. with that said, we also know our limitations; one of those being masterful stonework. Joel's artistry and knowledge place him in a world of his own and we love his work, his professionalism and timeliness. Our clients have loved working with him.

I had English Stone do accent stone work around a couple of trees and landscaping and it turned out beautifully! I loved the professionalism and attention to detail that Joel provided to the project! I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
