Front Entryway Completion!

The first steps to having a complete front landscape, this stonework lays the foundation for garden beds and a nice side entryway leading to a deck.

I’m looking forward to phase 2 in the spring, which will include another set of steps and a bluestone walkway!

Front entryway progress in Sooke!

Starting with a blank slate, this Sooke area entryway already has a great timber frame style which the new natural stone steps will compliment very well.

Compacting 3/4″ road-base and pouring a nice concrete pad upon which the stonework will sit to make this set of steps last.

I took a few minutes to mock up the L.E.D. accent lighting for my clients to view over the weekend as well, before I bond the bluestone down and set the brackets for the lights into mortar.

Here’s the start of a secondary set of steps to create access from a deck through the new garden beds to the front of the property.

Bonded down, these freshly grouted bluestone treads will have to set over the weekend before they can be used.

Looking forward to sharing the completed project with you this upcoming week!

Until then,
