Landscaping Transformation for Backyard Soil Erosion Landslide Waynesville, NC

This homeowner called us saying “Oh, no! My wall is about to go hellllp!”

The cabin was built very well, but the contractor did not backfill the back of the property and the land was sliding away every time it rained. It was just a matter of time before his deck would have been destroyed and then possibly the home.

Landslides can be very frightening and destructive. Soil can erode easily around hillsides and slopes which is very common in the Carolina mountains. A common soil erosion is caused by water erosion, which is the loss of soil due to water.

We built a 110 foot natural gray boulder retaining wall. Each of the granite builders weighted upwards of 4,000 pounds! We had to carry each rock one at a time up the traitorous hill. This job was insane and dangerous. It took us more time getting the materials to the job site than it did the job itself.

We wanted to transform his backyard so him and his wife could really enjoy their beautiful property. They are true heroes of this country and have given (and still are) their lives to protect and serve our land. I’m so very honored to have done work the two of them. I will forever be in debt to them for the service they provide.

We added on to their existing deck and provided stairs leading to the backyard that they were not able to access before. We also built a stone walkway.

Ivan had this to say:

“All around tremendous experience from beginning to end. It seems my review is going to sound similar to many others and that is b/c Ryan and his crew continue to deliver consistent quality work. First and foremost, my wife and I were searching for someone to build a suitable retaining wall for our cabin.

He transformed our property into a completely different home and getaway. We cannot be any happier or pleased with the outcome of his work and the craftsmanship of his crew. They didn't leave behind a mess or trash. The property is in better condition than when they started. Bottom line, he continued to go above and beyond what was expected and he always had our best interest in mind. I will close with one final comment. Ryan is a BIG supporter of our nation's military. He understands the sacrifice being made by service members and he personally guaranteed that my wife and I would be absolutely blown away by the final product....and he was right; we are. Thank you Ryan and thank you to your crew!”

Homeowner had a beautiful home overlooking the mountains in Chimney Rock, North Carolina. He did not have access to his backyard and wanted an entertainment area and a new entry way to the back of the property.

We built a pressure-treated staircase that runs along the side of the home and connects to a curved split face block retaining wall and beautiful stone patio. Now he has a beautiful entertainment area with views of the Carolina mountain tops!

Split face block retaining walls offer an outstanding structure reinforcement and are typically the size of a standard concrete block with one side designed with a rough texture that artistically creates shadows. These walls are durable and come in many different colors.

River Rock Waterfall & Boulder Wall in Buncombe County

The customer, in Woodfin NC,  initially called us because his backyard was eroding and he needed access to the patio he built his wife but much of the land was unusable space.

We used Doggett Mountain Stone for the steps and for the boulders. The waterfall was built with North Carolina River Rock and we planted rhododendrons, dogwood trees, azaleas and multiple one gallon perennials. We completely redid the entire backyard so they can easily walk down to their stone patio with a beautiful view of their new waterfall.

We really enjoyed working with this client and designing and building on their beautiful property.

Outdoor Kitchen & Firepit in Candler, NC

The homeowner had just retired as a South Carolina State Police Officer and wanted us to build his dream backyard, where him and his wife would be spending much of their time.

We worked together with the the customers visions and designed an outdoor kitchen, fire pit and walkway. The kitchen has running water, mini fridge and an area for his giant green egg for cooking. We also took his old fire ring that had rust and sanded it then painted it black. The flagstone walkway is built with mountain mist rock with gator dust in the joints and used boulders to raise the bed so the fire pit sat higher than the rest of the patio and landscaping.

Block Retaining Wall & Custom Deck in Woodfin, NC

This customer in Woodfin, North Carolina had a big erosion problem in the front yard. Dirt was washing off the roots of the Bradford pear trees and causing mold and mud because of the drainage issue.

We build retaining walls designed with an 8-inch split-face block poured solid with cement to protect their yard, home and trees. We also custom built a large front deck with three plant holders and re-planted some of the customers azaleas plants they had located on the property.
