View Full Version : Anchor Highland Wallstone

03-13-2005, 11:05 PM
Has anyone ever worked with Anchor Highland Stone before? I am going to install 170 ff of it this week with steps and two gradual 90% curves. I chose it over the Keystone country manor due to its rear lip system for the ease of constructing curves. Is it a nice wall to curve with or should I consider the country manor for the next project?

I find ep henry looks so much better than anchor walls, and its Very easy to use. I do use anchor pavers as they're quite cheaper.

We have worked with the highland stone wall for a couple of years now. Great looking wall, installer friendly, some tricky things you'll pick up on when you've installed a few walls. Pm if you got any other questions.

Looks great LH!

How did you like working with the Anchor Highland stones?

I loved the stone. I was a bit trifling to use a rear lip stone with a stairway that tall. But other than that I liked it alot. I just need to get the caps and pavers on now. Thanks for the info on the highland stone everyone!!

Hey, Looks great.

Im looking to learn about pavers and wall's. What does it cost to build something like that. with stairs, 2 walls and a small paver pad.

cost to build

cost to customer??

Thanks alot.

I charge $30.00 per face foot for the wall with a cost of about $6.00 per face foot plus gravel etc. On the pavers I charge $6.10 per square foot at my cost of $1.44. This includes the installation. Mulch, shrubs, and anything else are extra. This can be a little tricky sometimes. If you have an area where a dump site is not close to or you cannot get a machine into I'd charge a little more. Also some pavers require every linear edge to be cut like the one I did here so keep that in mind also because it adds alot to you time of installation. Hope this helps if you need any more info pm me and I'll help you all I can but I am no means as seasoned as most of the guys on here.

Looks awesome.....do you need to do anything special if you butt it up against the house? Or do you use the house as a starting point? I have someone who wants a wall built and they think it has to be free standing, I told them it starts at the house and you create a U shape, not a box shape up against the wall...let me know. Looks kicka#@!! :)

I used the house as a starting point because it was the lowest point to start the leveling pad. Just try to keep the stone close to the house so your drainage gravel doesn't wash out between the cracks. I don't know wxactly what your up against but I think a gravity wall or re-inforced wall should work out fine from what you told me. Just be sure you can drain water away from the house if you are making any grade changes. Hope this helps.
