Originality

“As designers we look at materials and suppliers as an opportunity to reflect our design intent. YMSW understands scale and see the larger project and design intent. They’re able to facilitate examples and options that go beyond simply meeting a specific stone’s color and texture.”
~ Kenneth Philp, landscape architect, Kenneth Philp Landscape Architects

“You simply HAVE to be innovative in your communication and in your process to change centuries of habits and behaviors. When the Chinese see something that is smart and makes sense, they are quick to grasp the new idea and run with it.”
~ Michael Burnap, International Finance Consultant.

“YMSW has a great selection of stone. They always seem to be seeking out new and different ways to use stone, with different textures and in different applications.”
~ Steve Seibert, residential installer, Gardenstone Masonry

Collaboration

“We count on their upfront expertise. We talk with them early in the brainstorming process on our design projects. They are excellent about outlining what is possible with stone. On some occasions, we talk with them about what we're trying to achieve with a design and they will actually recommend stone that has properties that would work well in that application.”
~ Robert Esselburn, Landscape Architect, Lewis Scully Gionet, Inc.

“Yellow Mountain was very, very proactive with the architect and with us. Everything was absolutely as promised. Perfect detail. A great product. I've never worked with a company that was so easy to communicate with and so thorough in every aspect.”
~ Mark Chelak, Mason, Desert Mountain Tile & Marble

Expertise
