Rock Stair Installation

Garden paths and pavers can create a beautiful and timeless look in your yard, and if you have a tiered or sloped yard, you will also want to add rock stairs to your landscape design. Installing rock stairs is not something that homeowners (even do-it-yourself enthusiasts) should try on your own.

There are a wide variety of ways that you can incorporate rock stairs in your landscape design, including:

  • Walkways
  • Garden paths
  • Multi-tiered patios

Whether you’re planning for a brand new yard, landscaping a commercial area, or you are just looking for ways to improve your existing yard, R.A. Johnson Excavating & Rock is the place to go for the best selection on rock products for stairs as well as professional installers.


Why Hire a Professional for Rock Stair Installation

Landscape design is more than just deciding where to plant certain trees or the shape of your grass. When you have a tiered yard, retaining walls, pathways, and other elements that require stairs to navigate, it’s essential that you have the help of a professional to get it right. This is especially true if you don’t have experience and expert knowledge of things like soil composition, erosion control, and retaining wall materials and designs. Installing a set of rock stairs on your own without the proper planning could result in stairs that come loose from soil erosion, presenting a danger to your family and friends who come in the yard.

You could go out and purchase your own rocks, then hire a landscaper to come and do the work, or you can save yourself the time and hassle by coming to R.A. Johnson Excavating & Rock. We have all the materials you need to choose the best rock stairs that match your landscape design, providing both beauty and function, and we have a team of expert installers who can get the job done quickly. We can also help with permitting when it’s required; generally for a small project like a few decorative stairs in a backyard you won’t need that, but for rock stairs in commercial areas or that are part of a larger erosion control landscape design you may need to get permits and inspections.

Wide Selection of Rock Stair Options

Choosing the right stairs is essential to ensure they are functional and safe, but also so they match the overall look and feel of your yard. For stair materials you can choose from:

  • Cut stone
  • Irregular or “natural-looking” stone
  • Flagstone

We also have pebbles, pea gravel, and polished river rock that you can use to fill in around the stairs in your landscape design. Come see our huge selection and talk to our team about the right materials for your rock stairs.
