Project No.: 2017-5
Location: Butte, MT
- Re-create backyard for entertainment
- Simplify maintenance
- Lower water consumption
This project underwent total transformation to create the perfect outdoor experience for the family and guests.
To begin Wagner & Company removed all existing concrete and vegetation to begin with a clean slate. Moss rock boulders were used to retain the steep hill around a natural stone staircase. Boulders were used to accent areas around the property to naturalize the planting areas.
Belgard Dublin pavers were selected for a large patio area encompassing a wood burning fire pit. A masonry bench matching the stone on the fire pit was installed so seating would always be available. Old concrete walkways also were replaced by matching pavers.
All soils were amended and prepared for planting by rototilling compost into the soil. This process will increase the soils humus and water holding capacity ultimately reducing the overall water consumption of the yard.
By carefully planning the plant bed edge steel edging was installed as a restraint between the sod and Mulch creating a seamless transition that is easy to mow. After planting, old farm implements and a frontier mining cart were used as decorations in the landscape, adding interest and a one-of-a-kind touch.
