Wagner and Co. needed to provide stone and masonry work to match the main house, complete with slab benches around deck area. Moss rock retaining added in front of the deck gave the appearance the home was built on an outcropping, without disturbing the natural landscape of the area around it. A fireplace was set with matching stone and benches to enjoy the evening view of the property. A manageable lawn adds an area for kids and adults to play and congregate.
Native plants blend the area back into the surrounding mountain landscape, making the home inviting and attractive. Both homes are connected using stone step paths and ornamental boulders. A mix of native grass and wildflowers surround the landscape with lots of color.
