Inspired by their geologist clients, designers Wade and Lauren helped transform a sloped backyard into a rock lover’s dream! While rebuilding the failing retaining walls, we repurposed existing thin stack stone and added big slabs of sandstone, which have grown a beautiful mossy coating with weathering. Cut in to the slope is a cozy bluestone alcove with an informal boulder firepit and sandstone bench seating, as well as a space for a future shed. Lush, easy-care shade plantings soften the substantial stonework.
