Our Story

Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes, LLC was founded originally under the name, Garden Graphics Landscaping, in 1982 by Bob  Blunkosky. The original services offered included: Landscape installation, sprinkler systems, and lawn installation along with landscape and lawn maintenance. Jeff Blunkosky, Bob’s son, was involved in maintaining the plant nursery and shop grounds at the age of 12 along with working summers and weekends on site, ultimately working full time for the company in 1994. In 2002, Garden Graphics changed its name to Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes, LLC. The name change came about due to the company’s expansion of its previous services to now include 3D design, low voltage lighting, drainage solutions, excavation and especially a large role in the hardscape industry. They added services that included the use of pavers, boulders, retaining walls, ponds, waterfalls, outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, pools, and carpentry components for residential clients creating our signature service of the Outdoor Living Space.

By 2014, Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes maintained a yearly sales growth by 15% on average doing over two million dollars of installations in 2014. The company consists of  Jeff Blunkosky, President/Owner, Bob Blunkosky,    Chief of Operations, along with one office manager, two landscape designers, and  three installation crews.  In addition to our team, we also work with several subcontractors that include landscape/hardscape contractors, electricians, plumbers, pool builders, carpenters, land developers and more. We have earned media recognition from National TV (HGTV), newspaper/magazine articles (Pittsburgh Post Gazette, Pittsburgh Tribune Review, House Tends, Lawn and Landscape, Total Landscape Magazine). We are two-time Unilock Award of Excellence Winners, and 2013 Pittsburgh Builders Association’s "Winner for Best Outdoor Living Space" .

Pittsburgh Stone and Waterscapes was founded and currently run as a family-owned business. We have maintained our core fundamentals focusing on operating a professional company, staying on the cutting edge of the newest landscape trends, and striving to exceed our customers’ expectations.
