MICHAEL J. TAKACH
Is the owner/operator of Earth & Stone LLC. Michael started in the landscaping industry at the age of 14, in Williamsport, PA. He quickly focused on the hardscape aspect of the industry and has dedicated his heart to the trade. After receiving a Bachelor of Science, with majors in Geology and Sculpture from St Lawrence University, he created Earth & Stone Hardscape Construction in April of 2001. Michael believes that to be successful you must be the best at what you do. This thought is what helped him define his business plan, and create a very specialized trade niche. Michael’s other key to success is hard work. He demands hard work from himself and his crew all day, every day: “you cannot fail if you work your hardest”.
Michael has chosen to work with stone due to its permanence. Earth and stone are the oldest building materials utilized to provide shelter and protection. The pyramids in Egypt and the great castles of Europe are wonderful examples of the lasting nature of stone structures. Michael takes pride in creating structures that will last for many generations. Building with stone is the most permanent construction; outlasting rotting wood and rusting steel to leave behind a structure to be marveled at and utilized by generations to come.
