    Hi Hardscapers,

    Summer is upon us and hope you all are finding interesting hardscape projects out there. I would like to share with you our latest project. This customer had a small parking area below wall that was build many years ago. He needed some hardscape work done in this area so he could part a vehicle. We make it a little softer grade up hill for driveway area. So we had to work with space we had without comprimising any more space for a vehicle. So we introduced a new old product; slope curb walls with steps and on the left side we stood up curbing. The old slope curb is wonderfull stacking material that has texture to their faces and still giving an old look. We also built stairs into the wall for access to the parking area. See before and after photos.

    Good luck with your projects,

    Granite King,

    Thanks guys for the reply.

    Slope curb is small curb you see sometimes along highway edges on a slope hence the name slope curb.

    Hi Mid Ohio Scaper,

    Thanks for your kind words. I hope I am not boring anyone when I post these job pictures. I love this kind of hardscape work. Not many use the granite so it is unique. What type of work do you do?
