Stone work or hardscapes usually create the bones of the garden by defining traffic patterns & creating physical structures. Living spaces and value are added to your home by providing useable square footage outdoors. All of our stonework is installed with a clean aggregate base properly compacted, leveled, and graded. Our dry laid retaining walls are built proportionally to their height; this means they will retain the sheer weight of the soil behind them. Behind the wall goes a pocket of washed stone and a drain that creates a dry environment behind the wall as well as a buffer from soil heaving in winter. This pocket is carefully enclosed in a filter fabric to prevent soil infiltration. With taller walls, concrete or natural stone, we will also use geogrid to stabilize the backfill zone behind the wall.
Walkways and Patios- We install flat surfaces in a variety of forms: natural stone, concrete pavers, and clay brick.
Paver driveways- paver driveways are a long term solution and money saver not to mention they can make your driveway become part of the whole landscape rather than just asphalt, which needs regular maintenance and replacing on a much shorter interval. Color, texture, shape, size -the possibilities are endless with pavers.
Retaining Walls-we specialize in real dry laid stone walls and modular concrete retaining wall systems. Quarried or fieldstone, walls can add a sense of timelessness to your entryway or back patio. We build retaining walls big and small, we also build 2 sided sitting walls and decorative walls too
