Nashville Stone Steps

Stone Steps are a great way to get from place to place on a property that has steep slopes. Natural Stone is the best for a rustic natural look, and lasts ages. The Middle Tn Nashville area has a hilly topography which means many people have a hard time moving around on their own property. Stone Steps give you that access even when it rains.
When we get rainfall here in Middle Tennessee Nashville and if your property is sloped you may decide to do needed things in the yard once it dries to prevent falls. Having a set of stone steps could give you more usable space on your hilly property and provide access to areas you thought you would not use. Now a patio could be made where you couldn’t go, or maybe a private garden, or reading spot.

Getting to places on your property is important and what says permanence and stability more than real stone steps . If you are going for a natural looking yard then real stone is the best choice. Here in Tennessee this stone comes right out of the ground which makes it more affordable than bringing in manmade faux stone. The Stone in the photos is English Mountain which has a consistent tan with slight variations. Stone Steps will last as long as stone lasts which is a very long time.
Nashville has hills like the Hollywood Hills which seem to roll and roll forever. This means when you buy a piece of land it is likely to have either a slight slope or a steep slope. We think one of the choices you should consider is to use Stone Steps. Stone will last, it is affordable, and it helps you get to areas on your property that are hard to get to.

We installed a stone steps project for a local Nashville couple and here is what they had to say:
My husband and I are thrilled with Dalton, his work and his crew! We
had some challenging issues with our backyard being on a significant slope upwards. He installed a french drain, and laid natural stone steps in two problem areas that are not only beautiful, but are highly functional. The crew showed up where and when scheduled, worked efficiently, neatly and quietly. We even had overnight guests while they were here and there was no disruption of our living pattern. I can’t say enough good about the outcome. We plan to use Dalton for some additional landscaping projects. I would recommend him with no reservations. He goes above and beyond. Thanks Dalton and crew!
