Natural Stone Retaining Walls, Reclaimed Steps and Patio

Posted in Landscape Lights, Masonry, Pavers, Uncategorized, Winter Landscape at 6:08 AM by Administrator

Artistic Landscapes enhanced the backyard for this Georgetown family by building a new set of steps that connects the driveway to the backyard and a new paver patio.  The steps and patio are supported by natural stone retaining walls.  These walls were built to look like an existing wall as the goal was to make this area look like it had already been built for 20 years.  As a result, we used solid reclaimed granite steps for each of the steps and by using this type of stone, we were able to achieve a classic look that is easy to walk up and down.  To ensure nighttime safety on the steps, we installed 4 lights directly into the stone wall as these lights provide sufficient light across the entire set of steps.

A sitting wall was added to help remove the grading concern as the ground sloped more than we wanted and this wall provides some additional seating and the background to some plantings.

The patio was built using Unilock’s new pavers called Westport.  We found these pavers to be very nice to work with and they provide the homeowner with the exact look that they wanted.
