Job Description

About Us:

LaGrassa Design is owned and operated by Matthew LaGrassa. Matthew has been in the industry for more than 20 years. His passion for the business began when he was just a teen. He spent a, hot summer working for a stone mason. It was the hardest he had ever worked. But it was also the most rewarding work he had ever done. Matthew loved the feeling of the stone in his hand, and the idea that he had built something that would last. He became committed to craftmanship. That commitment has grown to include a commitment to providing his residential and commercial clients with top-notch service, quality workmanship, and unique design options that exceed every expectation.
