At Culver's SAFETY is a number one concern and MONTHLY meetings are held to ensure the proper use of equipment and the safety of each staff member. You do NOT want to create a new landscape without close attention to the specifications for the material involved. Each piece of retaining wall stone for example may have a different specification on how to install it. At Culver's we adhere to all of these SPECIFICATIONS individually and therefore ensure your project is done in a safe and timely manner.
