Exposed Rock Enclosures
Designer: Toy Ortega
Contractor: TEO Design Innovations
Striking in notes of gold, brown and grey, Hickory Creek boulders anchor this design. Matching selections of Hickory Creek rubble were hand-chosen to fill the exposed rock cages that act as visually stimulating retaining walls along the yard's slope. These galvanized steel enclosures, known as Gabion Baskets, are a growing trend in landscape design that add interest or define the vertical strata of a property. Supreme walk-on bark surrounds water-wise plants and flowers for uniformity and to conserve water in the underlying soil.
