Are you looking to improve the aesthetic appeal of your property?

Large Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are a great way to define the limits of a garden and hold the soil of the garden in place. They can also be used to outline the limits of other landscaping features such as ponds, fountains, trees, and more. The best part about retaining walls is that you can use different varieties of slab cut stone to construct them and give them a unique and distinctive look. You can purchase the slab cut stone from Loukonen Bros in a variety of colors from grays, tans, and browns, to pink, orange, and terracotta.
There are an endless amount of ways to use quarry boulders and slab cut stone as decorative elements in your landscaping. Boulders can be used to outline a fire pit or other landscaping fixture, or you can arrange multiple boulders and stone slabs to create an eye-catching rock garden. If you have a large electrical box or other unsightly piece of equipment on your property, a well-placed boulder can hide it from view without making it hard to access. You can even use boulders and slabs to construct stylish chairs or benches for you and your guests. The only limit is your imagination.
This is one of the more practical uses of quarry boulders, and something that residential and commercial property owners should consider. Free-standing boulders can be used as traffic blocks to keep vehicles from entering portions of your property. Fences and gates are expensive, but quarry boulders can be easily placed a yard or two apart from each other to effectively keep vehicles out while still allowing you and your guests to enter your property on foot. You can also build a freestanding retaining wall around the perimeter of your yard to keep vehicles out without restricting your view
