Finally... a place for the grandson to play!

Pam Hofmeister lives in a townhouse in West Olympia with limited backyard space. But aside from a small concrete slab, the yard had no landscaping. Since this area of town is built into the forest, the builder chose to leave the backyard natural and undeveloped. However, Pam found this frustrating, not just because she was unable to enjoy her backyard, but when her grandson came over to play, there was nowhere for him to safely enjoy the outdoors.

AJB Landscaping & Fence helped Pam transform her backyard in two stages. First, we excavated the backyard, extending the flat, graded area back about 20 feet. We then built a retaining wall into the hillside.

To save money and provide a "green" solution, we built the retaining wall out of recycled blocks we removed from another job site. The blocks were structurally sound, but the other customer wanted a different look in his yard. We were able to reuse his blocks on Pam's job.

AJB encourages its customers to consider eco-friendly soutions like this when it's feasible. It not only saves money off of the premium for new supplies, it also keeps perfectly good landscaping materials in use and out of the landfill.

For the second stage, we returned to Pam's home to installed a paver patio featuring Western Interlock Jamestown Roca blocks to extend from the orginal concrete slab. Because we had already regraded the yard for the retailing wall, preparing the job site for the the pavers was easier than starting from scratch.

As you can see in the gallery of photos below, the new retaining wall and paver patio turn what once was an unusable backyard into a nice, secluded getaway. And more importantly, now Pam's grandson looks forward to coming over to play in a safe and secure environent.
