Masonry can be a big part of your landscaping features, especially if a natural stone is one of your materials of choice. This in itself has many types and colors available and can be sourced locally. There is no limit to what you can have built using natural stone, most of which will last for many decades and can greatly increase the value of your home.
Earth Retaining Walls
These can be built by masons using dry stack stone, this gives your walls a natural look as the appearance of any fixing materials is omitted. If your property is based on a slope or incline, they can enable you to increase your yard area by creating terraces within the slope. These terraces not only add features, but the wall prevents any soil erosion which could lead to landslides towards your property.
Aesthetic Retaining Wall Stones
These can add different layers of depth to your landscaping, they can be built to perform the same functions as earth retaining walls, but are generally smaller. You can add raised flowerbeds where the top of the wall doubles as extended seating areas, these can also be incorporated around your fire features.
There are many added benefits of using natural stone in your landscaping, especially is used to build structures, all of which would require professional masonry to be conducted as this natural stone can be of irregular shapes and requires the skills of the professionals to piece these together.
