Brick retaining walls / Brick entry's / Combination brick and stone retaining walls
Here we removed a old pumice stone retainer wall and installed a new concrete footing , we then installed block and veneered the retainer wall with eldorado cultured stone from Allied building supply.
The retainer walls were built on a long slow radius that gave it a unique look and fit right back into the landscape nicely.
We sawcut saddles as the wall followed the existing landscape instead of steps to soften the look of the wall..
We installed the variegated bluestone caps and cut the joint work and the caps with the radius of the retainer wall then (flamed edged) the bluestone  to give it a rough texture  and added a dark mortar in the  joint work to  blend with the stone and not stand out like a natural mortar would have.
There was much more masonry on this project , we installed a new concrete driveway and Brick patio in the back along with the staircase and walkways in front.

On this Brick retainer wall we removed old railroad ties along the front and treated wood planks along the sides and installed a double width brick  retainer wall that we poured solid along the back side.
We saw cut the wall to follow the terrain of the yard and installed a saddle following the terrain at the existing rock retainer wall and brought wall down to meet the new brick retainer wall along the sidewalk.
We then installed a full header rowlock cap on the retainer wall.
Here we installed the footing and brick saddle  walls  that soften the look of the masonry and give unique character to any home .
We can either pour the back side for retainer wall or install a double brick width wall for a brick fence .
