Always right in a Muskoka setting, stone stairs are easily adapted to the rugged terrain. Our landscape crew welcomes the challenge. The final touch that we add to our stone stairs is creeping thyme or moss in the spaces between the treads. Ground covers among the surrounding boulders complete the picture and in no time the stairs blend into the landscape.
Does the stonework serve a functional purpose or is it purely decorative? Is it necessary? Are the properties and benefits of stone utilized in some meaningful way?
When stairs are necessary to facilitate movement throughout the property stone stairs are an environmentally sensible solution. They're functional and durable as well as decorative.
