Owner of this project removed about 5000 sq ft of sod lawn and wanted a much lower maintenance landscape saving time on labor, maintenance and water. The results of this finished project are an access pathway around the house. As well as a decorative stone area next to the Airplane hangar for overflow plane parking. Purple quartzite is used on the raised mounds as ground cover with the larger areas 1/2 inch open blue quarry.

This house in Monroe Oregon is owned by a very good friend of mine. We landscaped the house but the owner was not satisfied with the concrete steps. We used inch to 1-1/2 thin set slate to cover the concrete steps making a big difference in the entrance. We also did the 2 other steps accessing the surround covered porch and creating landings out of our Molalla Block stone.
The owner of this project had multiple retaining walls originally constructed out of rail road ties. When we started to remove the ties they came out in pieces. The new walls are constructed out of our Molalla wall rock that we stock and carry at the Landscape Shoppe located at 5139 Hwy 22 W between Dallas and Salem. We painstakingly pick through each rock that we bring to the job site and dry stack them fitting the rocks together like a puzzle. By stacking the rock this way it creates a very tight form fitting wall that we put a lifetime warranty on.
This project is a front yard makeover for the Vesper Residence. We will be installing a Timberstone walkway, front steps and landing. In the front along the walkway we will install boulders and some new soil giving the front a more natural landscape look. New sod and sprinkler system will also be installed in the front yard.
This project is for a friend of mine in the Stayton area, we will be installing a large slate rock patio using Mollala slate. First we will pour a Rat slab of concrete and then set and mortar the stone to the concrete.

Also included in the project will be new planting beds, irrigation, a custom fire pit and water feature.

This project is a complete yard makeover, we are working under a deadline as the owner is preparing the yard and gardens for a May garden show. We will be remodeling and installing the following:
  • 900 L/F of slate stone pathway set in ¼ minus gravel.
  • 1000 sq/ft of new slate patios for sitting areas and gathering.
  • Various remodeled areas containing new plantings, flower beds, stone work, retaining walls.
  • 120 sq ft wood gazebo.
  • Antique Iron gazebo mounted on slate patio.
This project is located in McMinnville Oregon. The owner has a larger property that is on a severe slope. We will be installing retaining walls to hold the parking lot and landscape planters in place. The owner wants very low maintenance so we will install low maintenance groundcover plantings and weed fabric in all the flower beds, banks and slopes and synthetic lawn will take the place of natural lawn. The entire house will be accessible by paving stone pathway and the lower deck and outdoor area will be hardscaped with pavers.
This is a small residence on Coho Street in West Salem that we landscape as part of the Salem Tour of Homes....
This project is a commercial courtyard that we demolished and built out for a client. This project was interesting mainly due to having to move all materials, soils, plants, pavers, gravel, rock, pipe, down through the elevators to be hauled off site. We started by removing about 400 yards of material, soil, plants, concrete, etc to ready the courtyard for the new project.
Gary Robinson of West Salem, owner wanted to access the upper sloped area with stairs that matched his existing landscape and cut out a flat area for him to build a small utility building. Using an excavator we made a 1500 sq ft cut on a very steep slope leveling the area and placing gravel. The cut created a vertical wall of about 5 feet high, here we place natural stone stacked neat and tight to hold the exposed bank, as well as the natural stacked stone steps.
