Explore the benefits of three popular stone masonry projects, including retaining walls.

A mason’s job is to construct buildings, walls, arches, and many other structures using materials like brick or stone. While brick may be a prevalent building material, stone masonry projects are equally worth investing in and can provide classic beauty and incredible durability when installed by masonry professionals. At DelPrete Masonry, we have experience building many stone masonry projects for our commercial clients. Adding retaining walls, pavers, and entryways can create a stunning impression on building guests and last many years. Learn more about these three types of stone masonry projects you can plan with DelPrete Masonry.

Stone Retaining Walls 

Retaining walls are used to control soil erosion, provide a barrier for stormwater runoff, and help with drainage. Stone retaining walls are an appealing option for landscaping because they can be designed in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit the needs of your project. They come in various colors and textures that add depth to any yard or garden. 

When you add stone retaining walls to your property’s landscape, you add a traditional visual flair that makes a positive impression on those visiting your property or even passing by. The classic beauty of these stone masonry projects will contribute to creating an overall appealing and impressive structure. 

Stone Pavers and Walkways 

You can add more value to your property with the installation of stone pavers and walkways. These stone masonry projects also help you create a beautiful outdoor space that is both comfortable and functional. You can install stone pavers in many places, such as gardens, patios, and walkways. They can be built with a variety of materials, including natural stone. Stone walkways are highly durable and can withstand the outside elements for many years without losing their impressive appearance. 


Your building’s entryway provides visitors with their first impression. Installing lovely stone walkways or steps up to the front door makes an impression on those visiting or working at your property. Installing stone walls on either side of a driveway or roadside entrance can also do a lot to help your property stand out to those passing by and direct visitors to the property entrance. All the while, the stone masonry looks classic, serious, and impressive to all.
