Custom Rockwork by Onyx Landscape

Quality landscape design involves trees and flowers accentuated by custom rockwork and hardscaping projects. Rockwork is durable enough to last for many years without losing its original look, even with harsh weather conditions.

Onyx Landscape designs and installs custom rockwork projects as part of a complete landscape design, or to add extra dimension to your existing landscaping. We use high-quality materials and bring attention to detail to every project.

Types of Rockwork Projects

We can install a variety of rockwork projects as part of a complete landscape design, or as an addition to your existing landscape:

Boulder Retaining Walls

Properties with sloped terrain need retaining walls to prevent erosion over time or after heavy rainfall. Stone retaining walls are very durable, but don’t have the type of look that suits every homeowner’s style. Boulder retaining walls offer the same level of protection for sloped terrain, but offer a more natural look that blends in with the terrain.

Rock Pathways

Dirt or gravel pathways can develop uneven patches from heavy use or puddles of mud during rainy seasons. Rock pathways create a sturdy surface that still looks rustic and natural. They create a natural transition between the landscaping design and the walkways throughout your property. 

Flagstone Patios

If you want to create an outdoor space that fits in with the natural backdrop of the Pacific Northwest, flagstone is a great choice. It is a natural stone that comes in a variety of colors to fit in with your personal style and the design of your home’s exterior.

Water Features

Water features such as rock waterfalls, bubbling rocks, and pondless waterfalls add tranquility and visual interest to your landscape. They create a focal point and provide soothing sounds of flowing water, which is always relaxing at the end of a long day. 

Types of Rocks Used for Hardscaping Projects

We work with a variety of rocks and stones to create custom hardscaping projects. Here are some types of rocks commonly used in our rockwork projects:

  • Granite is a durable and versatile rock commonly used for boulder walls, rock pathways, and retaining walls. It is available in a wide range of colors and textures, making it a versatile choice for a variety of landscape designs.
  • Sandstone is a popular choice for flagstone patios and walkways due to its natural beauty and unique texture. It comes in a range of colors, including warm earth tones and cool grays, allowing for endless design possibilities.
  • Limestone is a versatile rock often used for boulder walls, rock pathways, and retaining walls. Color options range from soft creams to deep browns, making it a popular choice for both traditional and modern landscapes.
  • Basalt is a dense and durable rock commonly used for boulder walls, rock pathways, and water features. It has a dark, uniform color and a smooth texture, making it a sleek and modern choice for contemporary landscapes.
