Charley MacMartin launched Queen City Soil & Stone in 2005 to continue the stone and soil work he began in Baltimore, Maryland, before moving back to Vermont with his family. A graduate of UVM, Charley's background in environmental studies has guided the ecological practices Charley brings to his work.

"I appreciate Charley's artistry, dependability and, most of all, his fun and friendly personality. His work sites are alive with passion and care for the natural environment and the people and plants that share it." Silvia Jope, Old World Garden Design

In 2013, Charley began collaborating with the owners of Champlain Landworks, Aaron Smith, Heidi and Jonathan LaBate on stone and soil projects. And with the 2016 season, we have decided to merge our businesses. Aaron, Johnny and Heidi will continue to build dry-stone walls, install gardens and create patios and walkways. Charley will be running the winter workshops and consulting with homeowners.
