About Us


   Split Rock Landscaping evolved from Richard McCormack's enjoyment of working in the outdoors. He uses a variety of natural stone products and plantings to create uniquely beautiful land/yardscapes to last a lifetime. With Split Rock Landscaping, your yard or place of employment, like a blank canvas, can be transformed into a masterpiece that will not only enhance your home or work environment, but will increase your property value too!


   Whether you desire a beautiful bluestone terrace, walkway, retaining wall, pond and waterfall, water feature or any other stone project, (or maybe you prefer limestone, fieldstone, brick, pavers or interlocking blocks,) our landscaping artists will listen to your requests and create your home and yard project into the exact inviting outdoor environment you have in mind. Split Rock Landscaping gives you experienced and dedicated craftsmen who provide quality workmanship while owner, Richard McCormack works alongside and oversees each job from start to finish. For over 2 decades we have designed hundreds of landscapes, from placing, planting and maintaining your shrubbery to an intense 2 year long intricate project. We design and create a natural environment by selecting each stone individually then by meticulously placing, hand leveling and chiseling each one until a perfect formation has evolved. We recognize that every client, property and lifestyle is unique and with this in mind, we developed our landscape design service to be as flexible as your needs and demands require us to be. Most of our landscaping projects are targeted at the following areas: Albany, Schenectady, Clifton Park, Saratoga, Poughkeepsie, Rhinebeck, Chatham, Hyde Park, Carmel and many other cities and counties in New York and Massachussettes. When thinking about having a project installed that will enhance your home and yard, think about having Split Rock Landscaping design and complete it for you.
