A New Back Yard with Planters

This Project was very simple and complicated at the same time. Simple when it comes to laying the stones and building the Planters. Preparing the ground work to make it ready for the stones was a tough job for us... the entrance to the backyard was very narrow for my machines to go in and out, and prepare the ground work.

Luckily behind the house there was a Public Park, we had to apply for a permit to use the City Park as our entrance to the back of the house to prepare the ground work. And take all the dirt out…... because of all these delays, the job which was planned to take 10 days from start to finish took us one month, plus a full time heavy rain, which made it very hard and messy to dig and prepare the ground for the stones. Finally the ground work was done, and we were ready to start the work.

We used Romanesque Cobble Stones from Oaks. The job came very nice. The color chosen complement the house nicely and added lots of value to the house.

These are some photo from the finished job. As you can see we had to take part of the fence to be able to enter and do our work.
