Incorporating Natural Elements into Design

With each year, we see a greater demand for the use of natural materials in our landscape designs.  Man-made pavers, wall block, and steps are being replaced with flagstone, bluestone, boulders, and natural stone slabs.  These natural elements allow the new landscape to better fit with surrounding features, such as an existing limestone barn foundation (first picture) or wooded setting (second picture).

Boulders can offer a more cost effective approach to grade retention (third picture).  Also, flagstone stepping stones can be a natural pathway alternative to a more labor intensive interlocking paver system (fourth picture).
