At Kurtz Brothers Inc. we have a variety of decorative stones that are perfect for various applications. Buff Blend Outcroppings For irregular landscapes that are pitched and slopped outcropping stone is utilized in retaining walls. This keeps the soil in place and serves as a means for erosion control. At Kurtz Brothers Inc. our Buff Blend Outcropping stones are perfect to use in a retaining wall at your home. These massive stones not only provide the necessary foundation to keep your landscape intact but they are an attractive option that will also add an element of class to your backyard. Keep in mind that these rocks are large and erosion control systems should be installed by a professional Decorative Stone Steps When you hear granite you probably think about countertops in your kitchen but you can also utilize granite in outside application. These Granite Steps come in a variety of sizes so you can pick the perfect ones for your backyard patio. They can complement a stone patio or be used as a walkway down a sloped embankment. Heavy Fieldstone Steppers are another option if you want a stone step with more of an earthy hue. As opposed to the light gray granite fieldstone steppers are darker with more red and brown hues. These are perfect to pair with a stunning flagstone patio. Keep in mind that these decorative stone steppers are very heavy and may need to be installed by a professional.
