Project No.: 2018-4
Situation: New Construction
Location: Butte, MT

- Make an appealing yard that is an asset to the property
When a certain material is requested, such as stone, great care must be taken to ensure it is used properly and the rest of the landscape compliments it. This particular stone naturally occurs in vertical layers, so it is key to use it in the same way. Although not perfectly smooth, this stone was suitable to also be used as treads. A beautiful paver patio is used to barbeque and sitting area for guests.
The area soil is composed heavily of decomposed granite not allowing the soil to retain water. Wagner and Co. amended the entire planting area with a large amount of compost to balance the soil. This will allow plants and grass to thrive all while using minimal water and fertilizer.
Large trees and plants that are native to the area of Butte give stunning color and re-naturalize the lot back into the foothills that surround it. A lazy bed line makes this property easy to maintain.
