This property had a failing hillside. It was nearly impossible and dangerous to mow because of how steep it was, and it was taking up usable space. The slope extended right up to the back of the house leaving the client without much of a backyard. We dug away part of the slope and were able to turn the area into livable space with boulder and mortared core fieldstone retaining walls. These walls will prevent the sandy ground from future erosion. At the base of the slope there is approximately 400 square feet of random pattern bluestone patio. We also added stone stairs that climb up to a second, smaller patio with a rustic boulder fire pit, which was one way we were able to utilize the slope. The upper hillside was reforested with native species and we installed almost 2000 square feet of planting beds throughout the property.
