Stone and Pressure Treated Timber Wall Types
Retaining Walls: A retaining wall is constructed to prevent the erosion of an embankment or hold back soil on s steep slopes. They can add to your usable outdoor living space by leveling out ground as well as help protect your property from eroding. Retaining walls can also help support garden beds by preventing erosion from affecting the ground soil by acting as a barrier for the landscaping.
There are several types of retaining walls; masonry, concrete, gravity, segment block, natural stone, gabion and others. They are typically constructed of reinforced concrete, concrete, natural rock, metal or pressure treated wood. Any retaining wall must be designed to ensure stability against sliding, overturning, excessive foundation pressure as well as proper drainage and water uplift.
The stonemasons of Art of Stone are experts at helping you access your property needs. If retaining wall solutions are needed, we will walk through your property with you and discuss practical, effective options including drainage, support, materials options as well as ascetic value.
Garden / Landscaping Tiers: Landscaping tiers are used to create wide, step like tiers for hardscaping your landscape design and building terraced gardens. They are ideal for slopes, steep hills and banks or to make use of uneven areas next to a deck, patio or seating area. While landscaping tiers are a practical solution to hold back a steep slope, a beautiful landscape design combined with attractive landscaping tiers also adds curb appeal and brings a uniquely custom look to a home.
Raised Garden Beds: Raised garden beds, also called garden boxes, can be attractive hardscape additions to an outdoor living space. They allow you to have landscaped areas in trouble spots and work well alongside paved areas to help prevent dirt from washing onto a patio, path or driveway. Raised garden beds may be used for shrubs, growing small plots of vegetables or flowers. A raised garden beautifies a home while being practical. They may be built from stone or timber. Art of Stone can build custom raised beds to blend seamlessly with your existing outdoor environment.
Property Border: A rock or stone wall along a property border is always a handsome statement to include in your outdoor decor. Stone walls may be either built into an embankment or free standing. The role of stone walls along property edges has evolved beyond the needs of defining borders and containing livestock yet they remain a popular stonescape option. Today, more than being utilized in a classic country or farm setting, property border walls may be used in suburban or urban areas. A stone wall can help define an outdoor setting as well as be useful to establish property lines. They may also complement a home design, help with privacy, reduce road noise and convey a feeling of security.
