Maximizing Mississippi River Views

A variety of hardscape products, including the VERSA-LOK Standard retaining wall system, VERSA-LOK Tri-Face, and Willow Creek Paving Stones work together to create this stunning blufftop project in Prescott, Wis.

The homeowners wanted an outdoor living space that would be easy to maintain and would enhance their view of the Mississippi River Valley.

Pro's Touch Landscaping in Prescott, Wis., created a patio with pergola as an addition to their existing screened-in patio deck for outdoor dining space and a second, sunken patio with fire pit for nights on the bluff.

Before the patio spaces could be built, a 1,800 square foot retaining wall was designed to define the patio spaces. The 10-foot high VERSA-LOK Triface wall system using multiple layers of soil reinforcement was chosen to match an existing, smaller wall.

Running parallel to the 22' curve of the Tri-Face retaining wall, two seat walls using VERSA-LOK Standard wall system provide a safety measure as the boundary of the livable spaces in the patio. Both the retaining and seat walls are from VERSA-LOK and tie the new outdoor spaces together.
