Current project...

Been working on this for the last two weeks, weather not cooperating due to rain, but I'm not complaning... we have been quite dry and that never ends well for our industry. Also notice the thickness of the chunks of concrete... 8-10" Turns out builder poured it twice.

looks great. I do have on curiosity question. When I approach jobs that are similar (walls that butt up to paving) I generally install the paving first and then install the wall. Not trying to steal the thread, just wondering what the rest of you all do.

Thanks.

I put the walls in first, the paver helps hold the base of the wall in.

Job is coming out really nice brandon. Like the boulders and how they are tied into the SRW.

Nice border on the brick. Very clean.

Ditto on the border first, brick, rock, concrete next.

Looks like a drainage nightmare. Nice to see the preinstall prep.

I always do concrete removal separate T&M. How did the extra concrete work out?
