We have started another good job on Spring St, New Glasgow. Our client was looking to retain a steep bank along the driveway. This wall will also step up along the incline. Stay tuned for more pictures.
All of the pavers have been laid! There were a pile of them… The polymeric sand was installed on the weekend, the walkway and step will be wrapped up in the next few days. Take a look at the latest update:
The rain is keeping us off the job site today, but it does give me a chance to update you on our progress. Check out the photos:
We are waiting on another shipment of stone to finish up the job. Won’t be long now.
The property that we have been working at, on Munro Ave Ext. has finally been wrapped up. The homeowner increased the scope of work to include, sodding the property and another paver walkway. Check out the continued work and finished product.
We have started in on a great new project! A paver driveway. I am taking day by day photos to show our progress. We are using Shaw’s Windsor and Castle stone line in Chamois Charcoal. Last week was spent preparing the base, changing the slope to give better drainage and a more even surface for getting in and out of vehicles. The stone is being unloaded at this very moment!
Along with our on going projects, when we come across ideas, pictures or anything else that applies to the world of landscape we will pass it along. This is a really compelling presentation on changing how we think about food. My favourite line – “if you eat, you are in”. -Rachael
The last few days we have been working on a job site in New Glasgow with Balodis Inc. The homeowner was looking for more useable space behind and beside their new house. The wall was built to allow for a small shed, driveway and trailer parking and access to the backyard. The property will be shaped for proper drainage and topsoil added for future sod and bed space.
This project was in partnership with a local forestry professional, who had been working on the property for a few years. GWL was asked to construct this woodland trail as part of their overall property plan. The trail is 1/2km and perfect for horseback riding, cross country skiing, biking and of course walking.
It was a great project for the root rake on the 35D Mini Excavator. Burrow pits were dug off to the side of the trail for all material. Minimal disturbance was the the primary goal.
Hard to believe that it is September already, time flies! Here are some projects that we have been up to:
This client had a list of projects to be completed after building a new house last Fall. This flagstone landing will be at the foot of the deck stairs (to be completed) and also provide access to the outdoor tap and power meter. This stone is beautiful and thick! Average thickness was about 4″.
Retaining walls were needed on both sides of the house to help mitigate the slope. The client was interested in this quarried rock from Marshdale which created an informal wall and allowed for planting space above. The stairs are a precast product (Redi-Rock) which look like natural stone but have smooth bottoms for more controlled installation. Completed pictures to come.
