Here’s a sample of what some of our clients and partners say about us.

“Randy Nelson is a true artist. His work is impeccable. I would highly recommend him. A true artisan.”

Bill & Geri E. - Tampa, FL

“I hired Randy to remodel an existing fireplace in the Spring of 2017.  Throughout the entire project, from planning to implementation, he was knowledgeable, professional, and on time.  I am more than happy to recommend Mr. Nelson for any masonry project that you are planning.”

William T. - Clearwater, FL

“As a general contractor, I expect quality work product from craftsmen and have a reasonably good idea of what a project should cost.  Randy Nelson of Nelson Stoneworks did not disappoint me.  We had Randy add to a project started 35 years ago by a master stone mason.  His work was actually a step up from the original but to the uninformed, the transition is seamless.  We got master quality stonework by a man who I learned I could trust to be fair and honest and to be a good communicator.  Every morning, he texted me regarding his expected time of arrival.  His final bill to me was within $40 of what I had estimated for the job myself.  We highly recommend Randy Nelson as a master stone mason.”

James H., Jr. - Riverview, FL

“Randy built 2 stone pads off of our travertine patio which really complement our ivory trav. In addition, he acquired 2 huge stones to serve as steps off of our pool deck and onto our dock.  His attention to detail is incredible. He is truly an artist, provides great suggestions and is an all-around pleasant guy to work with. I would highly recommend him as well as those in his circle of landscape design and installation professionals.”

Shelly S. - Odessa, FL

“Randy's work is that of a real artisan; he's particular, exacting, and knows how to create beautiful stone working an overall landscaping design. We found Randy through Schatz Landscaping, who had highly recommended him. We were glad for the reference and hope to incorporate even more of his work in our outdoor project.”

Jeffrey & Libbie J. - Tampa, FL

“'Randy delivers as promised' is about the best I can sum up the work he did at my home. The stone walkway was finished exactly as he described it in the time frame he projected. The added value to my home and the beauty of his work is what I had hoped for and received. It was a time consuming project that other contractors would have rushed through...not Randy. He took his time and did it right and i highly recommend him to everyone who appreciates fine workmanship by a true artist.”

Rob P. - Lutz, FL

“I design landscapes for a living, and Randy’s work is truly amazing. From his flat work in flagstone to his vertical work with quartzite stone walls, there is no one better in the stonemasonry field in the Tampa Bay area. I count on his artistry, craftsmanship and above all, his shaping of each stone to fit a pattern that is drop-dead gorgeous. Hire Randy and you will have a work of art that will last a lifetime.”

Brian Schatz - Tampa, FL
Landscape Architect

There are stone masons, and then there’s Randy Nelson. What he created in our backyard with flagstone is a work of art! We found him very easy to work with and full of original ideas. His patience and attention to detail carried through to the completion of the project and clean-up of the area. If you’re looking for an exceptional stone mason you need Randy. Thank you so much.”

Kimberly & John D. - Odessa, FL

“Randy was recommended to us by Brian Schatz of Schatz Landscape Design. Excellent work and craftsmanship. His work is perfection. I highly recommend him.”

Bob & Shannon W. - New Tampa, FL

“It has been several months since you implemented the extensive hardscape for our new home and we continue to be very pleased with both the cosmetic appeal and the very functional structures you created. As you recall, we were required to use dry river beds on both sides of our home to provide containment of any rainwater runoff created by the footprint of our construction. In addition we had step downs, a large deck, and a waterfall/pond area that had to be incorporated into these hardscape features. We cannot thank you and your team enough for all the long hours of very hard labor and the obvious expertise that you provided. Having dealt with many subcontractors during the almost two year project, it was truly a pleasure to work with Nelson Stoneworks. Realiability and pride of workmanship are rare and treasured assets and you and your company brought that and more to the job.”

Al & Cheryl P. - Tampa, FL

“Thank you again for the fine work you did at our home. We couldn’t be happier with both the main garden walkways and the smaller area on the side. We’re very pleased with the color choices and glad we went with your suggestion to use gray/blue stones in the smaller area. Both areas look great and “work” well. Brian has introduced us to some excellent service providers during this project. We’ve come to view them more as craftsmen, and you are every bit the craftsman when it comes to the stonework. Thank you.”

David & Mary Ann C. - Wesley Chapel, FL

“Nelson Stoneworks did a fantastic job for us in the redesign of our garden area with a variety of beautiful additions including a stone retaining wall, flagstone path and patio plus a unique and beautiful stone bench, carved planter and birdbath. We were thrilled with the beauty, artistic quality and craftsmanship of the work, and all the elements have added tremendously to our garden. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the finished product and working with Randy and the Nelson Stoneworks team was a pleasure from start to finish. Fantastic job!”

Mike & Sherry R. - Lutz, FL

“In addition to your obvious emphasis on and concern for quality and the overall aesthetic, we particularly appreciate the fact that your team members all showed up when they said they would, all coordinated smoothly with each other and all completed their work in a timely manner. In other words, everyone involved made a commitment to a schedule and delivered accordingly. It doesn't get any better than that!”

Brian & Maggie W. - Lutz, FL
