The steps are tied in together on this one. For this job in particular we excavated to the footing, close to 9' deep. We installed 23 tons of 2" clear stone, geo textile @ the 8' mark then added 3/4" granular to just under bottom block. Up against the house we installed platton (sp) right up to the top of the brick. I suppose we could cut the siding and install J-trim, but its a chance you take if there is ever any settling.
