Stone landscaping, such as stone steps, is a beautiful and exceptionally durable way add character to your home and give character to your pathway design. It’s also a safe and efficient strategy to allow for traversing steep slopes. Fredell Enterprises is a Colorado Springs landscaping firm that will customize your stone pathway design based on the size and features of your yard.
There are a variety of possible materials to utilize for these projects based on the look you are going for. Siloam steps are made of the same stone material as our Siloam stone retaining walls we have used for our Colorado customers, and each slab is custom fit to the topography of your yard. Siloam comes in a variety of sizes and shapes to create wide formal walkways or narrow primitive garden paths. Stone landscaping with Flagstone is also another great choice for creating stone steps with a smooth surface. Another more informal option is to install flat-topped staggered boulders through a retaining wall or steep garden slope to create a naturalistic garden path.
Function and aesthetics are important factors to consider in creating stone steps. Step heights can range from 4″ to 8″, and the depth of the tread can be 12″ to 24″. We can create step sets that curve, integrate into retaining walls, and even allow for groundcover plantings. We can build landings between sets of steps and also have custom hand railings built for your steps. Unlike timber steps, these stone steps will last for a lifetime.
