Retaining walls provide a number of benefits from functions such as holding land in place and keeping water from destroying portions of your property to also simply looking great and adding some personal touch and feel to your landscaping as well. With different stone varieties and colors to choose from as well as different design and structure options, you can get pretty creative when looking at the options available to you. From natural stone to cut stone and brick varieties, whether for lining of a garden or your driveway, no project is too ambitious for true masonry experts.

2. Patio & Paver Options

Hate that old and dated staircase from your driveway to your front door? Sick of the cracked and crumbling walkway in your backyard? Then a new patio paver walkway may be the stone work you’re looking for this spring. Similarly to retaining walls, the choice of stones and rocks has only gotten better with more customization than ever before available. Here, installation needs to be done scientifically and mathematically looking at things like angles, depth, water current, soil strength and more, so be sure to bring in a professional for everything from blueprints through to installation and finishing.

3. Proper Equipment & Insurance

As many projects of this nature will require heavy lifting, dangerous machinery like backhoes and other tools will be needed to break ground, shape rocks, and more. Be sure that any contractor you are considering is properly licensed and insured, this will protect you as a home or business owner and ensure the quality of the work you receive is also done safely.

With even a few minutes of asking around or searching online, you can find a huge variety of different masonry projects to move forward on this coming spring.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind before attempting a “DIY” installation.

1. Planning

The most important piece to any project as this is to plan out every detail, taking into account factors like costs, time frames, and any potential yard or landscape obstacles. By knowing exactly what materials and shape you’ll want for your walkway or patio, you can move forward much more quickly.

2. Budgeting

Depending on the sort of materials and design you’re considering, the costs can vary greatly. Here is where planning and budgeting go hand in hand as it’s a good idea to have a fixed cost in mind (or at least a ball park figure) for all the materials and labor.

3. Professional Assistance

Let’s be honest, most of us don’t have the tools, time, or experience to install large concrete, use a paver, cut stone, etc. These jobs can be dangerous and require certain certifications and licensing to even perform. This is where looking locally for a professional service that specializes in this sort of work is an absolute must.

Installing a patio, walkway, or retaining wall on your own is almost entirely out of the question. For the best in hardscaping and concrete masonry work, as well as the finest Pavers Rockland NY, look no further than 25 year local expert Pro Cut Landscaping. 845-727-8815
