Retaining walls create curved stairs & walkway
This homeowner-occupied duplex needed improvements to access the walkout basement apartment. This property had a hill leading down to the walkout basement apartment that needed ease of access and maintenance.
The homeowners chose to add long-lasting beauty, value as well as measures of safety by installing a stacked staircase created with the VERSA-LOK segmental retaining wall system.
Villa Landscapes created a series of steps and landings out of VERSA-LOK retaining wall block and Willow Creek paving stones, using a running bond pattern with the pavers to visually guide people down the steps.
The landings allow for long, flat stretches of walkway to make it easier to get from one staircase to the next. Deeper treads allow for more walking space on the steps as well.
Flagstone steppers and natural rock mulch add a nice texture and contrast to the landing area of the stairway.
VERSA-LOK’s solid, pinned retaining wall units create the perfect foundation for stacked steps and can easily accommodate the curve needed to traverse the hill.
