Did you know that to manufacture bricks or concrete massive amounts of CO2 emissions are produced? Primal Patch is a new business with sustainability in mind when it comes to garden construction. They use real stone for their patios and lay by hand.
Laura and Robert Johnson design and build landscape elements such as stone patios and native gardens with the environment front and centre.
Laura went to George Brown college in Toronto for Construction Project Management and began working for a small construction business in Cobourg. Within a year or two the company grew substantially and they ended up winning bids on large projects such as Venture 13 in Cobourg and Regency Retirement here in Lakefield. Laura learned how to read blueprints, interpret building codes and work with the other trades to achieve their goals within budget.
Growing up on a family operated beef farm outside of Bobcaygeon Robert has never been scared of a hard day’s work. In the summers he worked as a labourer for a local landscaper that specialized in local stone work. Robert has had a passion for natural stonescapes ever since.
