    Needed some stairs put in for a basement apartment ASAP.. the tenant slipped and fell on his butt the day he moved in walking down that grass.

    Called my buddy and he said these Siena Stones would make for a quick install. Less than 5 hours and they were in.

    My friend has been in bricks for over 5 years and has done a lot of admirable work.

    Any feedback on how these look?

    I don't see a compactor anywhere, did they compact the base? They made a big mess just to put a few steps in! Other than that, looks good to me.

    Thanks!
    Yes they compacted it. Soil was very moist that's why it's so torn up..

    Looks like you need to deal with some drainage issues as well.

    Definitely. I am re-routing those gutters, and eventually they will lead out under ground once a patio is installed.
