We dug in with a big excavator and had to delve two and a half feet deep (a total of twelve dump trucks!) to remove all the bamboo roots!!
The topsoil was nearly 200 cubic yards to refill and bring it back up to grade. We also removed the original stone retaining wall, which in its previous form choked the front entrance to the house.
Our design was to create a brighter space and open up the front door area. This has the added benefit of more security as well as increased curb appeal.
A new retaining to frame a front porch and patio with new stairs to the side yard were installed. The entire driveway was done in blacktop leading to the patio itself which was made of Indian Summer Pavers in a pin-wheel pattern.
This somewhat modest design had new turf, irrigation, plants and lighting as well. Sometimes certain designs don’t need to be overly complex, and these clients really valued an open and clean style.
