Basalt Drystack retaining walls, are a beautiful and timeless way to retain sloped areas. They ensure over the long-term, require very little upkeep, and provide a classy way to landscape a sloping property.
For this project, the owner approached us with a vision of retaining the eroding slope behind their house–while providing space to plant beautiful English-style gardens. They needed us to build up specific areas for the retaining wall/garden concept, and then soften the overall look with large, mass plantings.
Logistically this project seemed daunting, as 28,000 lbs of basalt needed to be carried–by hand!–up a large flight of stairs to the back yard. We then needed to add soil and plants into this equation…so determination and hard work was critical. In the end our dedicated team created a stunning landscape design…and our clients were thrilled to see their vision come to life.
