This West Salem project was a challenge, consisting of a new back yard brick patio with fireplace and water feature. We used the Jamestown park and plaza for the patio, Anchor Diamond block for the main walls, anchored into the bank and pinned in the hill for the foundation. On top of the Anchor wall we built the patio walls out of the Tegula wall block in the sandstone blend from Western Interlock. The stairs to access the back yard along the house were built from Anchor step blocks by Willamette Graystone, they worked well and blended in to the rest of the hardscape areas. New sod lawn, Hunter sprinkler system, plant materials, bark dust, imported topsoil, soil amendments, lots of rock for the base of the patio and all of the materials were hauled into the back yard with 5 gallon buckets due to lack of access.
