While it is not very exciting this is something we do for every job. Initially, before we start building anything I go over the layout with the homeowner. I use marking paint and paint the lines on the grass. The crew then removes the grass following the painted lines. For this job we nailed several pieces of flexible forms together to make the long radius the owner wanted. Then we stake out the form and confirm the location with the homeowner. Upon there approval we begin the excavation by removing the soil and replacing with stone. Once we have it all formed up and the stone graded to a depth of 4″ we are ready to pour.
