Trendy Backyard Landscaping Stone Steps Walkway with Retaining Wall

The steps within the retaining wall on this hill feature St. Mary Cream Cut Stone for its real stone snapped steps. This impressive backyard landscape design combines natural stone steps with block wall terraces instead of retaining wall stone, which would have been our go-to. Regardless, it’s a gorgeous solution to have such a beautiful stone paver walkway down such a steep slope.


St. Mary Cream Cut Stone brings cool arctic stone colors to our Architectural Cut Stone Line for detailed cut stone architecture and veneer stone panels. Or in this case it’s implemented in a Landscape Stone application. Its natural stone color range consists of light grays and creams with light veining and occasional flecks of light buffs.

St. Mary Cream Cut Stone’s matching capabilities are complementary to the real stone color tones of dry stacked stone and mortar masonry installations of our Stone Panels and full and thin Stone Veneers, along with our Landscape Stone products for perfect stone project symmetry. Refer to our stone masonry blog for more details about how to install interior, exterior, and outdoor veneer stone with Cut Stone details. And check out our Brag Book Category or follow our Design Idea Boards on Pinterest for more inspiration on everything from hearths, mantels, wall stone, and walkways to almost any custom-fabricated cut stone element imaginable. Get inspired by the beauty of natural stone and buy stone veneer from Buechel – for best experiences that make us your ONLY REAL CHOICE IN real STONE.
