Start with custom hardscaping
Many properties have an area that presents a landscaping challenge, whether an awkward slope or an area of poor drainage, that is difficult to maintain and detracts from the overall beauty of the property. The professionals at Gerbert & Sons will design and expertly install the perfect solution to address your yard’s unique concerns that is both environmentally sound and aesthetically pleasing. Remediating a region of water pooling with a proper drainage system increases the amount of enjoyable space in your yard and reduces the threat of disease from insects. To control erosion on a sloped area, our stonemasons will build a retaining wall that follows the unique contours of the land and existing boulders, creating a natural element of visual interest as well as vital soil retention. For a larger region, layered terraces may be the ideal answer to achieve this goal, highlighted with decorative gravel, rocks, and perhaps a welcoming stone path that meanders through your new landscape. An inviting private seating area with arbor or trellises adds the crowning touch to this once overlooked and underused part of your property.
