Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are relatively rigid walls used for supporting the soil mass laterally so that the soil can be retained at different levels on the two sides.  Retaining walls are structures designed to restrain soil to a slope that it would not naturally keep to (typically a steep, near-vertical or vertical slope). They are used to bound soils between two different elevations often in areas of terrain possessing undesirable slopes or in areas where the landscape needs to be shaped severely and engineered for more specific purposes like hillside farming or roadway overpasses.

Stone-stacked Walls

Dry (without mortar) stone work in the hands of a skilled waller is an art form. An art form that will last multiple lifetimes and serves multiple functions. Using but one tool; the hammer, and much patience and strength, a skilled waller can lay yards of fence per day. Most modern wallers do not like to shape stones but instead prefer to locate the perfect nature shaped stone. As their eyes have developed an acute sense of space, an experienced waller most times will only pick up a stone once, before positioning it.

Stone-stacked Retaining Walls

Pavers

Pavement, in construction, is an outdoor floor or superficial surface covering. Paving materials include asphalt; concrete; stone such as flagstone, cobblestone, and setts; artificial stone; bricks; tiles; and sometimes wood. In landscape architecture, pavements are part of the hardscape and are used on sidewalks, road surfaces, patios, courtyards, etc.

Patios

Patios are most commonly paved with concrete or stone slabs (also known as paving flags). Patios can also be created using bricks, block paving, tiles or cobbles. A patio is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation that adjoins a residence and is typically paved.

Stonescapes

Stonescape employes stone elements from either Eastern or Western gardening traditions (or both), contemporary gardeners can benefit from the myriad of garden traditions for use of rock and stone. When assessing your property for stonescape features, you will necessarily want to choose both functional and simply decorative

Wood Decks

Wood or timber “decking” can be used in a number of ways: as part of garden landscaping, to extend living areas of houses, and as an alternative to stone based features such as patios. Decks are made from treated lumber, composite lumber, composite material, and Aluminum. Lumber may be Western red cedar, teak, mahogany, ipê and other hardwoods. Recycled planks may be high-density polyethylene (HDPE), polystyrene (PS) and PET plastic as well as mixed plastics and wood fiber (often called “composite” lumber). Artificial decking products are often called “wood-plastic composites”.

Concrete

Patios are most commonly paved with concrete or stone slabs (also known as paving flags). Patios can also be created using bricks, block paving, tiles or cobbles. A patio is an outdoor space generally used for dining or recreation that adjoins a residence and is typically paved.
