There is no project too big or too small.  In our archive of project pictures, you will see examples of both residential and commercial projects.  An outdoor space that can set the ambiance is good for business, and home. 


Pioneer Stone Art Company was originally founded in 1985 by George "Buzz" Bell under the name "BellCraft" with the goal of offering the best value in quality crafted outdoor living spaces.  For the past 31 years, Buzz has led his team of expert craftsman designing and installing projects throughout the DFW metroplex area.  It was Buzz's philosophies on value and quality that set the tone for the company, and led to its long term success and history of client satisfaction:

  • Value equals Quality divided by Price.  If you are shaving quality to meet a price point, you aren't delivering a high value project.
  • Quality is a function of Experience.  If you aren't hiring people with experience, you can't deliver quality, so you can't deliver value.

Over many years, Buzz developed relationships with vendors of high quality stone and wood products, high quality sub-contractors, and retained high quality employees who understand this value focussed philosophy.  The result is a highly proficient expert team with a high volume based cost structure for raw materials, yielding a quality / value proposition:

Pioneer Stone Art Company can build your professionally designed structure with high quality materials at a lower price than if you bought the raw materials and did it yourself.

The team that Buzz has assembled at Pioneer Stone Art Company has collectively amassed over 120 years of outdoor living structure design and implementation skills.


George "Buzz" Bell, Founder / Owner

buzzbellrBuzz established the foundation of today's business under the name of BellCraft in 1985.  Craft to signify the quality and artistry of his work, and Bell to put his own name behind the value / quality promise in his craft.  In the beginning, Bellcraft's focus was on decks, arbors, and pergolas.  Bellcraft acquired Pioneer Stone Art Company in 2002 which allowed the company to start offering turnkey outdoor living options beginning in 2003.
