    I'm not much of a hardscapes guy but I have a feeling that a herd of dunk monkeys could have done a better job.

    Property manger "Is there something you can do about that?"

    Me, Yeah "Not really, it should be ripped out and start over"

    Property manager "That's not in the budget. Just do what you can to make it safer"

    Sigh....

    Looks like someone purposely did a bad job to try and get $ for repairs. I’ve seen it happen around here. SMH

    They must have used styrofoam packing peanuts for their base material. It was a trendy new installation technique that fell out of favor years ago.

    PCB nuggets is the way to go now.

    It seems that they use a abundance of sand which wash’s out over a number of years. Real fix is sloping water from washing over steps

    Thats pretty bad when contactors do that. Works needs to be fixed for free if it fails because of improper install
