"Here are the pictures of the completed balcony.
We are completely in love with the way it came out.
Ever since we started the project we have been getting numerous comments on how great it looks.
The stones were delivered on time and we were so happy with them.
They were packaged very well and they were all in excellent condition; no cracks or anything.
They are so beautiful and we will definitely buy them again in the future."
-- Amira and Almir from Columbia, MO

-- Rick and Kathleen - Maryland Heights, MO
"Here are pictures of the patio we built with the flagstone
we got from you back in May.
We love it and have already gotten a lot of compliments on it.
Feel free to use the photos on your website."
--Bill and Matt - Florissant, MO
"Thanks Finn and Anne, the house turned out great!"
-- Leroy and Judy - Ellington, MO
"We were so fortunate for the wonderful web site you and Finn created, otherwise we would never have found
you and your business. It is getting better every time we visit it. The beautiful stone you provide made each of
our trips (6 or more) of 14 hours worth every minute of the drive over the past years. The compliments on the
rock used in our home, walkway, wall, and patio projects are the result of this beautiful creation of nature you
provide. The uniqueness of our home and related projects could not be possible without your hard work to
provide this beautiful product. Thank you."
-- Jim and Joyce - Peoria, IL
|"Working with Gottschalk quarry was an absolute find.
Where else would one get to deal directly with a supplier
on the specifics of the stone that one required?
I was able to pick out my stone and organize the delivery
of a natural Ozark stone, not an imported or east coast variety.
A similiar stone at a local supplier would have cost twice as much.
Finn worked with me on the delivery in difficult circumstances
and we were able to work things out in a very positive manner.
The stone is of the highest quality,
one can dress it any manner you see fit to suit your specific application.
As you can see from my patio, I dressed all the wall stone in a fieldstone manner,
the stones are circular in nature, no sharp edges.
The patio itself, had jagged edged stone.
The ultra thin stone is an excellent option for anyone who wants to do some stone cladding etc.
I would strongly recommend anyone to do business with Gottschalk Quarry."
--- Shane from O'fallon, MO
|The project turned out so much better then we thought it would.
The neighbors have all said what beautiful stone we found
and at our recent party the new outdoor living space that we created was fantastic.
We thank you very much
and can't wait until next spring so we can start another rock project. "
--- The McCoys from Saint Louis, MO
"The deck and patio project is finally finished.
And we will always have fond memories of our stone shopping with Anne and Finn."
--- Don and Michelle from Saint Louis, MO
We are contemplating doing another walkway next year in front of our house leading up to our front door."
--- Wayne from Saint Louis, MO
"As I was working on my patio,
I found I needed two additional pallets of the same stone to complete the job.
Finn and Anne had a couple other big orders for the same stone.
They worked overtime to fill my order and held it for me until I could pick it up."
--- Andy from St. Charles, MO
"We are very pleased and happy with the stone. It was a labor of love and sweat!
It was a pleasure to see your place and have the opportunity to choose the right stone.
We will recommend you to anyone, thanks for bringing a part of your Missouri to ours!"
--- Rob and Jann from Webster Grove, MO
|"Thank You to the entire Gottschalk Family!
The stone worked perfect. I was able to break most of the stone with a 3 lb. sledge
and shape them into the needed size/shape with very little waste.
We completed this 45 foot garden wall on our new home
and I have no doubt it has added value and curb appeal.
The prices were, by far, the best I found in Southeast Missouri
and I suggest anyone within driving distance
give this family owned/operated business the opportunity to meet your building needs."
--- Chase and Jodi from Poplar Bluff, MO
"Finn and Anne,
As you know, we've used the stone
from your quarry for years.
Recently we added a greenhouse,
an outdoor hearth and a fish pond
to host our daughters wedding reception.
Thanks for working on short notice
to match the existing stone on our house! "
--- Ed and Brenda from Ellsinore, MO
"Hi Anne, I finished up my patio project and wanted to thank you guys for the beautiful stone.
If you find anyone in need of a contractor please pass my name along."
--- George Mahoney from St. Louis, MO 314-620-5307
"As you can see, the house turned out great!
We are very glad to have chosen your quarry as our source.
We would be proud to be on your website. Thanks again. "
--- John from Rolla, MO
"We are definitely enjoying our flagstone walkway! Everyday I see it I enjoy it.
Everyone that sees it for the first time has very positive comments.
They inquire as to where I got the flagstone and I highly recommend your business.
I truly appreciate the effort you took to satisfy me as a customer.
It is indeed a pleasure working with you."
--- Dean from Florissant, MO
|"Outstanding says it all!
From start to finish, from ordering to delivery, working with the Gottschalks was an absolute pleasure!
Our patio turned out beautifully and could not have asked for a better stone. Hope to have the project
finished by next year with a pergola, plantings, and furniture. I have already been asked by several
people on how to contact you, would recommend your stone to anyone.
Thank You again for everything!! "
--- Charles and Amanda from O'Fallon, MO
"We decided to extend our patio and enclose it with a brick wall.
We were looking for ideas to accent the aggregate already in place and the wall.
The stone was the perfect solution.
We were very pleased with the quality and the blend of color in the stone.
--- Larry and Joann from Saint Louis, MO
"Dear Anne, I found the stone exceptional, it was easy to work and
matched the description I was given when ordering.
The service you and Finn provided was excellent,
you provided timely information
and were always pleasant to work with.
When I have the opportunity,
I will be back for more stone.
Hope to see and hear from you soon."
--- Grant from Washington, MO
"Thanks Finn and Anne! I was quoted $20,000 for manufactured retaining wall blocks to replace the wooden railroad ties
around my pool. Then I found your website online. Your 3-4inch stone costs far less and looks better than the fake stuff.
Hope to see you and the kids again soon."
--- Albert from Desoto, MO
|"Getting our stone from Anne & Finn was one of the bright spots in building our new home.
"We found their stone selling for one-third the price of the manufactured stone we were considering.
From the quality of service to the quality of rock, we're so happy we went with their native stone.
It is beautiful."
--- Sue & Keith from Peidmont, MO
|" Thanks Finn and Anne,
The patio and firepit turned out great. We use it all the time and love the stone!"
--- Steve and Susan from Poplar Bluff, MO
|"Working with the Gottschalks was simple, straightforward, and enjoyable.
They selected stone ideal for my project, provided it at the time they promised,
The natural stone is beautiful, their prices are fantastic for hand-cut stone, and I love how my yard looks!"
--- Gretchen from Poplar Bluff, MO
"We are absolutely thrilled with the quality, value and aesthetics of our stone!
The winding garden pathway is an oasis in what was once considered a disasterous back yard.
It has added extra outdoor living space, and given our two young boys a really great area to play outside.
As we continue our yard beautification project down the sides and out front, we will definitely be
utilizing more gorgeous stones from the Gottschalks.
It has been an absolute pleasure working with this customer-centric family business.
---Jen and Tim from Fenton, MO
Love the colors of the stone and how we have reclaimed more living space in the backyard!"
--- Rick and Ann from Saint Louis, MO

I've received nothing but compliments on the stone and your work.
I've talked to several folks who are considering adding some stone on their property.
Of course, I tell them how great both of you have been to work with."
--- Drew from Old Clarkson Forest in Chesterfield, MO
"The stone worked out great! The dry stack wall looks like I spent a fortune!
Stone bench finished also. Made the wedding extra special.
Thanks for all your help! You guys are the best. "
--- Jay from Carlyle, IL
"Thanks so much for the stone that was delivered last week. It looks terrific.
I was able to get the patio in on Saturday and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.
A few of the neighbors have already inquired about it,
and I told them how reasonable your prices were and how easy you guys are to work with.
Thanks also to your husband for the Friday delivery.
I appreciated his willingness to navigate the city streets and alleys
to drop the stone in a convenient location for me. "
--- Nick from Saint Louis, MO
"Well...the rocks are completely awesome!!! Can't tell you how much we love them.
When we off loaded them, they sat at the beginning of our driveway for a few days
and everytime we drove by we would ooh and aah over them.
The big rock was just spectaular
and we are working it out in our heads as to where it should go.
It is definitely a focal point.
Once this project is finished, we will come visit you and your quarry.
You guys are great and you did an excellent job picking out the right combination.
Thank you both and we look forward to meeting you some day soon."
