    Hi Hardscapers,

    Hope everyone had a nice and safe 4th. Thought I would share with you another project we just finished. This was a project that included wall building and stairs. The existing wall was an old boulder wall that was falling apart and there were no stairs to garage. Here are before middle and after photos of the project using 100 year old granite bridge block and old curb for stairs and and capping on wall where needed. Machines used CAT 311 and 302.5 track excavators

    Hi Stone Creations,

    Thanks for the complement. The granite block came from a 100 year old bridge.

    Hi Stringalation,

    Thanks for your reply and complement. The steps are actually old curb from a highway that was redone.
