Enhance Your Property with a Distinctive Stone Wall
Our first February blog looked at the historic nature of stone walls in our area and ways to incorporate their iconic charm into a modern landscape. They not only delineate property borders and retain and level sloping areas, but can be designed to aesthetically enhance your yard. Lower stone walls add seating areas to a patio or become an integral part of a custom fireplace or outdoor kitchen. Durable stone masonry can designate areas of your yard for specific activities such a play area or pool enclosure, and direct guests along desired paths while highlighting appealing views of your property. Integrating steps and lighting into these walls further increases their dramatic effect and improves safety. Consider using the top of the wall as a planting bed, adding more visual interest by beautifully contrasting the hard stone with the softer features and colors of flowers and mulch. Our experts can design and install a small pond as an accent feature to your stone wall, bringing the soothing sounds of a water feature to your outdoor living experience.
