Block/Boulder Retaining Walls and Custom Stairs

Retaining, Freestanding, and Privacy Walls

Retaining walls are a great way to add aesthetically pleasing visual interest in your property. Retaining walls, both boulder or manufactured block, are multi-functional! Utilizing a retaining wall to hold back that steep slope, and we can create a space that was once unusable, or at a minimum - you reduce the risk of future erosion.

Landscape Renovations in East Gull Lake - Mulch, Rock, Trees, Shrubs & Flowers


Mulch is one of the most beneficial add-ons to your landscape - wide varieties of color to make your shrubs and trees "pop out", reducing your water bill by retaining moisture in the soil for your shrubs and flowers, plus acting as a natural weed barrier. 

Our mulch application guidelines: we highly recommend at least 3-4" to allow new plantings to retain adequate moisture. If you are just refreshing your landscape, then a topdressing depth of 1"-2" is optimal. Contact us today to see the mulch type and color varieties we have to offer!

Landscape Bed Edging

Initially used as strictly a utility product, edging has come a long way from just traditional steel edges to keep mulch or rock in the garden/landscape bed. It creates a great buffer zone that allows your landscaping to look its best with a clean edge throughout.
