This residential home in Littleton, New Hampshire, is in for a serious makeover. We are beginning with about 3,000 square feet of granite cobble stone to form an entryway that will match the already existing granite stone work as well as compliment the scale of the house. This is only a small part of the entire project; still to come are the installations of a swimming pool, patios, and large scale plantings.
This customer came to us for a solution for an existing retaining wall that had failed. We were able to rebuild and extend the wall with stone from Allen Block, in order to prevent future run off. Now not only is the wall convenient and effective, it also doubles as an elegant hardscape.
With the addition of a wood or gas burning outdoor fireplace or fire pit you can extend the season by taking the chill out of cooler spring and fall evenings. It is important to place the fire feature properly in the design and choose a size that is suitable for the space.
