North Asheville Stonework Project

A couple of years ago we did this major project to create a backyard garden for a home in North Asheville. The site was such that we needed a crane to sling the stone up to the backyard. And it was still a long way from the actual wall location!

I was revisiting the site this week, discussing some additional work and got to see the gardens. They have really gotten established and look great.

Two drystone walls frame a backyard garden.

We also built a small patio/landing to the front of the house. Our friend Mardi Letson maintains and couple of container gardens for these clients, which are popping with color in the foreground.

This drystone patio features a lot of Pennsylvania bluestone, blended with the PA full color as well.

While we were working around back, they asked us to fix up a short walkway of sandstone slabs that had fallen into disrepair. Mardi has planted it with ground cover, including Corsican mint. I like the way it looks now.
