Block Walls, Steps, & Pavers

August 06, 2016

Project Description:
All of the wooden timbers in this project needed replacing. After time they had shifted and/or broke, and became unstable. We removed the existing steps, rock, and soil as needed. We installed new Versalok block retaining walls and step terraces. Installed pavers along the sides of the existing concrete patio and inside the block step terraces. Repaired the lawn areas with black dirt and seed. In addition to this area, the homeowner also had steps leading to the lake that they wanted redone. We installed new 6’ wide treated timber steps and repaired the edges along them.
