Landscape Project Portfolio

""Our backyard was a hot mess; drainage issues, grass that wouldn't grow after multiple french drains, plants that wouldn't thrive, a crane fly playground...it was ugly. Alan Burke came over for a consultation and gave us multiple solutions to amend the situation by offering his "Good, Best and Very Best" options". (Angie's List 9/14) "Just had to say how much Peter and I absolutely love our backyard garden. We sit out at night enjoying the pond, the birds the butterflies, the landscape and constantly remark what an amazing, peaceful setting you created for us. Peter loves futzing in the garden and spending time training his pod of fish, all named the Larrys (the big guys) and the Garys - the gold fish. Every night is like an adventure at Sea World when the fish get fed. Hope you are having a great summer". Janice C. (June 2015)"

More patios, walls & steps, etc.

We build patios, walls, steps and planting terraces from a wide variety of materials such as boulder stone, ledge stone, flagstone, tumbled pavers, modular wall block, pressure-treated wood and concrete. Regardless of the type of material you are thinking about, we will make it work to fit your budget and integrate well with the architecture of your home.

Services Provided:

  • Flagstone

    You can choose from a wide variety of flat stone paving or flagstone.

    We most often use Montana slate, but also work frequently with flat granite, Wilkinson stone, tumbled slate, and a host of other types.

    Usually set in a crushed rock base covered with compacted sand, the stone can also be mortared, custom cut, and fit against other styles of paving for a more eccentric look.

  • Patios

    We do a lot of patios. Keep in mind that you may need a slightly bigger space than you think to set a four-person table where you can still move your chair back without stepping onto the adjacent lawn or bed area.

    First you determine the shape and then you choose the materials. We'll give you a catalog showing stone selections as well as other types of paving to help you choose. You can also visit our sample library in Redmond for more information.

    Add pots and a few Adirondack chairs and...well, suffice it to say that we have to look at the size carefully.

  • Rock Steps

    These simple rock steps, made up of fitted small boulders, are one of the longest-lasting and most cost-effective ways to make steps. We can also make them from flagstone and other types of rock.

  • Raised garden beds

  • Masonry
