Stone has been used extensively for construction and landscaping since ancient times. Many people owning properties with gardens and landscaping in Sioux City are preferring to have their pathways, walls and other structures constructed from stone instead of concrete because of the many advantages of using stone instead of concrete. One of the main advantage of stone compared to concrete is that water will drain away naturally when it rains or snows, it will not accumulate. Sioux City Landscaping offers Stonework Services to tackle any project you may have!
A large number of structures in the garden or landscaped area can be made from stone. Pathways, stairs, sculptures, hardscapes, ponds, fountains, are a few of the stone structures. Different types of stones like sandstone, granite, quartz, bluestone and limestone are used for the stonework depending on the design required and the budget of the property owner. We supply and install the stonework after finalizing the design.
Most gardens have pathways which allow people to reach the different parts of the garden. We design the stone pathways for the garden, and finalize the layout. We also procure the specified type of stone for the pathways, install it and inspect it to ensure that the pathway is of the desired quality. The pathway will be sturdy and durable, level and wide enough so that a person can walk safely. If required, interlocking stone pathways can be installed. Sand is used to fill the gaps between the stone to complete the pathway.
Sioux City Landscaping can install custom stonework like statues, fountains, shelters and pillars based on the requirement of the property owners. Often the stonework is selected to match the design of the home, hotel or other building.
Retaining walls made from stone are extremely popular in homes, residential and commercial properties because of the many advantages compared to metal and wooden walls. Unlike wooden fencing which will rot after some time, and metal fencing which can become a rust wall, the walls are extremely durable and will last for hundreds of years if they are installed properly. They also require very less maintenance. Based on the height of the wall and design, suitable stone will be used for constructing the wall. It will be installed after considering structural physics so that it remains in place for decades.
