Using the latest in green products while working in California, expert stone masons and hosts Dean Marsico and Derek Stearns combine hardscape and softscape to create an environmentally friendly driveway, walkway and garden area. Permeable pavers, a water-saving irrigation system, organic plants, a weather station and low-voltage lights are some of the features they use to transform this Bay Area home into an oasis of sustainability. It's the softer, greener side of the rough and tumble stone masons.
