Selecting Landscaping Materials

Selection of materials is often based on existing site elements and architecture, and the overall characteristics of the property.

The design and materials need to befit the setting:

  • Formal masonry walls veneered in brick or stone or an informal arrangement of boulders can enhance a view, add character, and create multi-levels for plants and hardscapes.
  • Retaining walls are also important engineering features helping correct drainage and erosion problems, with detailed thought given to placement and material.
  • The design and build of walls and steps can provide functional purpose and a dramatic architectural impact.
