A New England stone masonry wall and landscaping project in NJ


I carved out the existing hillside to accommodate the new swimming pool. To retain the

 hillside I designed and installed several tiers of engineered stone masonry walls. Each 

stone was hand tooled and fitted. I used a colored mortar, slightly recessed for the grout

 joints. For the coping I used the same sandstone that I used for the patios. The plantings 

have been in for about 8 months from when this photo was taken. In another year or so the

 walls will begin to be softened by the plantings.
