Retaining walls add an aesthetic yet functional element to your landscape. Most commonly used to hold back or retain a hillside or providing some degree of levelness for more usable space, retaining walls will give depth and a contrasting interest to your landscape. Retaining walls are being used more and more to alleviate soil erosion, earth movement and landslides found in the High Country. With the variety of slopes and unleveled yards, retaining walls are used to hold back a slope while adding space and structure to an otherwise unusable or an eroded area of the property. The main function of retaining walls is functionality. However, the beauty of a retaining wall with the variety of natural and manmade products available will add value to your property as a decorative focal point and enhancement to the setting..
Often times our High Country properties have areas in which folks wish to access but the terrain makes it near impossible. This is where Clean Cut can be creative and design a stairway to make the space not only accessible but usable. Similar to the retaining wall materials, we create stairs using manmade materials as well as natural boulders. Installing landscape stairs will go a long way towards increasing the usability of your yard, while also adding an attractive element of expression to your outdoor space. There are many reasons to consider installing landscape stairs into your yard space. Chances are, your yard is bigger than you think it is. So much yard space is often written off due to slopes and grades in the land. Landscape stairs are often just what’s needed to start making full use of your yard.
We offer several choices for retaining wall and stair material; manufactured block, natural boulders, flat outcropping or stacked stone. Depending on your property and home’s architecture, we have an option that will fit the design and enhance your curb appeal for many years to come.
