We are ROCKS + STONES, A collaboration of established masons with extensive experience in stonemasonry and all aspects of landscape construction.

Joel Banner

Joel has extensive hands on experience in all aspects of stone facing application. His execution of excellent finished projects and his professional approach to his field has earned him a special honour from our supplier of stone facing products -K2 stone.

With solid preparation, a vast knowledge of wall systems, and beautifully installed stonework, he is setting the standard of what quality stone facing should be.

For all of your stone facing needs, contact our K2 approved installer today for an estimate.

Ben Edgington

A third generation stonemason, Ben’s masonry roots run deep here on Vancouver Island. A relatively young talent in the trade, his dedication to his craft is apparent in every project that he completes.

From the age of 11 he began helping his Dad on job sites and by 14 he began working for his Uncle in the summers which fostered an appreciation for hard work and the unique satisfaction that one gets from creating things with their bare hands.

With a strong vision for the future and both boots firmly planted in the ground, he’s ready to make his mark as one of the best masons in the trade.

“There is no feeling more satisfying than taking what most see as a pile of rubble, and turning it into something that will stand the test of time. I hope this is an experience I have the honour of sharing with clients for many years to come.” -Ben Edgington

Kevin Wilson

Working in the landscape construction industry has been his sole occupation for the past 15 years. Upon graduating from Olds College School of Horticulture- Landscape management major, he decided to move to Victoria to focus on starting a career.

Kevin has been very fortunate to work with highly skilled professionals of all walks of life. Before ROCKS and STONES masonry, he worked for a specialty landscape construction company here in Victoria and gained a wealth of experience. Since then he has grown into taking on a roll as hardscape instructor at the Pacific Horticulture College

From direct tutelage under a mastered Scottish stonemason to working closely with a Portuguese natural stone specialist, learning from a highly precise German construction specialist, talented artists, experienced businessmen, tried and tested managers and passionate entrepreneurs, he has grown himself and his business into what you see now.

“As I remember and honour those who have helped build me along the way, I hope to share with you the hard earned lessons and skills of my trade. It would be my pleasure to work with you to create the project of your dreams.” – Kevin Wilson

Construction Manager Conor Murphy

With over 10 years of landscape construction experience and an extremely strong work ethic, Conor is the engine that drives our company.

“I have gained a great set of morals and values through traveling, diversity, and a vast amount of work experience. I have been able to channel this into my work ethic providing a strong support to Ben and Kevin on all the projects we complete as a team” -Conor Murphy

Ryan Banner

As one of our lead K2 stone-masons, Ryan’s vast knowledge in wall systems and preparatory work for new construction stems from his past experience in construction and running a framing crew. Also with a previous job of installing natural stone veneer at Rocky Point Masonry he works well with Joel to execute excellent K2 stone projects of all kinds.

Ryan is a true craftsman with an eye for detail, and one of the best K2 stone installers in Victoria.

Sandy MacDonald

A very talented young stonemason, Sandy has extensive educational and hands on experience in a very wide range of masonry. His “masonry vocabulary” is extremely well developed which allows him to put his skills to work on any project we challenge him with.

We are very proud to have him as our project leader for residential stonemasonry.

“Every stone has a home” -Sandy MacDonald

Brent Nelson

With an immediately apparent natural work ethic, Brent has quickly become an invaluable member of our team.

Utilizing his experience in manufacturing pavingstones and installing fencing, he is able to perform a wide range of tasks with ease and skill. We are very fortunate to have him.

Thanks for all of your hard work Brent!
