Front Entry

Our new clients wanted a clean, maintainable front entry way for their home in Yachats. After discussing some ideas, we had a reasonable idea of what they wanted. We recommended removal of the railroad ties, reducing the level of the dirt below the siding on their home to allow access for maintenance, and creating a retainer for three quarter round rock used for landscaping around the house.

Ties were removed and disposed, hydrangeas and tulips were removed, the soil level graded sloping away from the house, and hydrangeas and tulips replaced in a way that will allow them room for growth and to be maintained. Perforated pipe was installed along the front footing and attached to existing drains, round rock used for drainage, felt, then top soil as cover. Retaining blocks were installed with block adhesive, weed block installed on grade, then washed round rock used as fill in the areas. Asphalt patch was used to create the transition between retaining block and the asphalt.

During construction, we placed the Stone’s Throw sign straddling the gate to the back yard, and our client liked it there, so we constructed a framework that can resist the high winds that they experience.
