Stonework

I wanted to share the transformation of our retaining wall and walkway. We’re thrilled with how they turned out!

  1. Fantastic walkway! You will enjoy that expense for many years to come. The retaining wall is beautiful. I would not have considered concrete blocks faced with rock. Terrific choice 🙂

  3. Your linen stitch blanket is so pretty. It sure brightens the day. I really like your retaining wall and walkway. I was envious to see your husband wearing shorts, We’re still in negative and single digit numbers, but its supposed to warm up this week. We might see temps in the 30’s!!

  4. Your wall and walkway turned out beautiful!! Nice addition to your landscape. And love seeing the sunshine. We had almost 11 inches of snow last weekend and it is still slowly melting away. Unusual for us. Sunshine would help!!!

  5. Not only are they nice looking, but that walkway will be so much safer than the rock pathway was. You might also consider a metal handrail along the steps.

  6. The stone wall is a work of art! I have always loved steps like that….a step up then level, another step up then level….Together, that sure was a big project.

  7. Fantastic and I am so amazed that you got all this done in spite of the pandemic challenges. You did not settle but got beautiful stone work that looks like it was done well. Getting a good contractor must have been challenging but you did it!

  8. I’m just amazed at how beautiful it is and to see people working outside with just a sweatshirt on-wow! It’s so darn cold here we look like Eskimos here. I love your walkway and wall. You probably go outside and just look at it with love. Beautiful job.

  9. A beautiful improvement. That stone is gorgeous! And the new retaining wall should make a big difference in slowing down erosion on the hill.

    I see Keith wearing shorts — how warm is it there? We’ve warmed up to 29f here in SW Ohio!
