Lake Front Stone Walls


This project in Lake Oswego features rock retaining walls in several styles. All the stone is from the Avison quarry near Portland, OR. We spent 18 months total on this fantastic landscape. The pictures are recent- I will have to get some in the spring when the plants are not dormant.

    Douglas- exactly. In fact, none of it is sealed at all.

    Absolutely gorgeous, its hard work but man the pay-off. I think rock always makes landscaping even more beautiful. You did a fabulous job.
