Consider practical matters such as the age of children, pets, and the maintenance and upkeep you are willing to do. Also think about what simple things may add enjoyment to your backyard. A walkway? Water feature of some kind? Nature enhancer (bird bath, feeder, butterfly garden, etc.)? Relaxation haven such as a hammock? Colorful flowers? Fragrance? And then envision what type of landscape you might like to put it all together.

Once you have an idea of what you might like, even if it is as simple as a shady reading area in the back corner of your yard surrounded by a babbling fountain with a walkway leading to it, come see us and we will help you make your dreams come true!

Retaining Walls Add Beauty, Practicality to Landscape

It’s not unusual for homeowners to need a retaining wall added to keep dirt and landscape from sliding from rain or even to just even up their landscape from natural slopes or dips. Knowing you may need to add a retaining wall feature may be the easy part, however. The more difficult task is choosing which type of look you want.

 

Retaining walls are built today to actually enhance the beauty of your landscape. Using railroad ties or untreated wood only provides a temporary fix, and may not accomplish the look or need you require as along-term solution.

Instead, homeowners are utilizing natural dry stack and building stones to create an eye-appealing interest in their yard area as well as protected their landscape for years to come.

At GE Landscape Supply, we feature a variety of building stones in beautiful colors, sizes and textures so you can achieve the landscape of your dreams. Some of our most popular stone is our black hills rustic, which is a multi-colored tan and brown snapped flagstone, and our cottonwood tumbled limestone, that is a white to gray-colored limestone. We have many other solutions as well, and our friendly staff will be glad to not only help you with deciding which type of retaining wall you may want, but also how to build it yourself properly! We also offer bulk and pallet delivery for additional customer convenience. Come check out our supplies and ideas so you can dream it, design it, and build it!
