Our granite buildstone consists of gorgeous blue and neutral tones. Let us help you create a pleasing and practical aesthetic without breaking the bank.
Stone Retaining Walls & Garden Glory
Incorporating a garden bed into your retaining wall is a popular option. After all, living in the sunny Okanagan, we are fortunate to have an extended growing season. Add an edible herb and veggie garden along the top of your retaining wall or strategically plant throughout. Perhaps you prefer to incorporate some evergreens to provide visual interest and bird habitat throughout the year. Enhance your overall stability by incorporating some generous root systems into your design. The possibilities are as unique and creative as you are.
Maximizing Usable Space In Your Yard
Stone retaining walls are ideal for helping to define different portions of your property. Having an adult area separated from the kids’ is always nice. Terracing your sloping yard can give you a variety of levels to work with. For example, a stone retaining wall can help you define your outdoor kitchen and patio from the pool and hot tub area.
Perhaps you have Ponderosa pine trees or fir trees shedding all over your yard. Having a separation of where you are growing grass and where you grow you shade garden and berry plants among your pine trees is much easier to maintain when some separation is in place.
Defining Your Driveway
Sloping driveways are a common feature in our Kelowna landscape and throughout the Okanagan valley. Natural stone retaining walls add security and sensational curb appeal. Consider building up the roadside portions that flank your driveway to increase privacy.
