Hanover product

never - your first step seems a bit shorter in height than the others. Any other pics?

I see your soldier row but where are the edge restraints?

Chris - the first step is actually 1" shorter- had to do it that way to come out right at the threshold.

Edge restraint is there. I had started to backfill before pic. I'll post some pics when I get the lighting in.

Gotta love them 'LINCOLN MEMORIAL' steps!!! :dancing:

LOL - I can say that, as years ago we built a set steps like that too!

I'm not a big Hanover person. Due to Major fading. But on the other hand - ANYTHING exposed to sunlight WILL fade, I don't care what it is, who it is, if it's outside - it's gonna fade. But Hanover seems to fade the worse, and rather quickly at that.

I think the satellite installer redefines lazy.

I cant find any info really on the construction of steps. Not taking into account slops and what not, just basic steps like this. Are they pavers and wall stone throughout? or is it "hollow" in the middle? Thanks!

Pick up a Versa-lok installation manual. There is a good section in there on building steps the "pedestal" method.

A small section of steps like that, I'd go pedestal all the way.

This set of steps has over 100 "dummy" solid concrete blocks inside. I have to check if I took pics of that or not. I am a small company and I get down and dirty in dirt like everyone else. Not much time to stand back and take pics.

what type of concrete blocks did you install where 100 of them fit?

6x16's ...........

would filling with modified have been another option??

Could have but I like to overbuild . Even though its more expensive - I like to ensure to my best ability that is is built firm. Also another thing to think of is the pressure on the "cheek" walls. Building "pedistal" style put no pressure on them.
