Installing a Retaining Wall
Project: Bob's Shingle Style Home, Episode 20, Part 1
The landscape hardscape is underway: a special retaining wall product provides an elevated terrace, and the lower back yard terrace gets paved with bluestone. We visit the home of Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect responsible for most of this country's great public parks.
- Part 1: Installing a Retaining Wall
Bob talks with Mike Nasti of All Island Supply as the four-man crew installs the Allen Block retaining wall in the backyard. This secondary terrace will serve to transition from the wood deck to the big terrace.
