Creative Stonework in West Seattle
This was a fun project we did where the customers specifically wanted a wall with "a lot of visual character" and we did not disappoint.
We took a bunch of random granite rubble and split it up into more flat and square-ish pieces while keeping some of the randomness intact. They were interested in incorporating a bench in the wall, so I suggested making it kind of like a stone couch. This holds up the hill where their vegetable garden will be soon.
The customers asked for some irregular, unorthodox shapes in the wall, so as you can see there are some long vertical and angled pieces, some smooth round protrusions and a shelf-like piece cantilevered. The paving was done with some very nice Pennsylvania Bluestone flagstones. Also black crushed rock was used in the joints for a more striking appearance.
