Natural Stone Retaining Wall with Boulder Stairway:
Perry Hall, MD
April 2011

Design Challenge:
Expand useable space in backyard hindered by existing grade and utilize the heavily sloping area at the rear of the property.


We installed a stone retaining wall to increase the flat area of the back yard and added a boulder stairway feature to allow access to the steepest part of the property.  Utilized a planting plan that would emphasize year round color due to the high visibility of the area and incorporated deer resistant plants due to the wooded location.
