Retaining Wall Installation
Customer Issue: Our customer wanted a good-looking planting area in her backyard.
Our Solution: We excavated three trenches, filled them with gravel and tamped it down. It was only logical to use the same material that was used for the driveway, so we started laying bricks making sure they weren’t wobbly. After a few rows, we placed a perforated drain tile and continued laying down additional rows. We filled the space behind the wall with gravel, covered it with the landscape fabric and a thin layer of soil.
Paving Stone Driveway
Customer Issue: Mr. Clarkson’s existing driveway was full of cracks and potholes.
Our Solution: Mr. Clarkson realized a brick driveway would not only be good-looking but also cost-effective. We started off by completely removing the existing driveway and the rubble. Then we filled the excavated area with crushed gravel and sand and tamped the layers. We did so; all the while making sure the base was correctly sloped. Finally, we set the bricks tightly together into a herringbone pattern and installed a vertical brick edging.
Customer Issue: This customer’s concrete driveway was not complementing his lovely home and well-kept garden.
Our Solution: Since Mr. Wilson also wanted us to make his driveway wider, we had to break up the existing driveway and start from scratch. After we removed the rubble, we compacted the soil and added the gravel and base. We made sure to set cobblestones as closely as possible to avoid any wide joints. Once we finished laying the cobblestones, we compacted the surface in order to set the pavers and filled the joints.
