Something There is That Loves a Wall

We recently had a wall built along the uphill side of our driveway, and along the front of our front yard.

Before there was only slope and rocks.  The contractors who built the house apparently made piles, not an actual wall.  The rocks were collapsing.  We were losing driveway space and it looked terrible.

Ross Maier (phone 503-440-4722) comes from a family of stone masons.  He had previously worked for one of the large construction firms in Eugene.  Towards the end of 2014 he got licensed and bonded, and started his own company.

He does great work.  (I also have photos of his later projects, including slate steps and a front-yard fountain.  But I am not sure if I can share those.)

Here is the entire wall:

A close-up of the steps at the top.  You can also somewhat see the stepping stones he added to our front yard.  No more muddy footprints in the entryway!  (And the boys love how the front yard is not a giant hopscotch-like game.)

More of a close-up of the driveway half.

And a zoomed in close-up of the corner.

Finally, sign.

We can certainly recommend Ross.  He does great work, is easy to work with, and has reasonable prices with generous warranties.
