Composite Steps Completed 303-255-5554 How to build composite steps http://www.patioandhomeimprovementdesign.com We are in Broomfield Colorado building landscaping steps. In this video we walk you through the project with us. We started the project by removing one row of retaining wall block from the wall in order for us to get the proper height for our new composite steps. We added a turn to the retaining wall and extended it out to get the nice radius. We set caisons in sono tubes about 2-3ft. down for our steps foundation. Next we framed the steps in with pressure treated lumber made for ground contact. We drilled galvanized hardware into the concrete caissons to attach our steps. We finished the steps with a composite decking material for the treads and fascia. The landscaping included about 14 tons of granite boulders that we placed throughout the yard for decorative accents as well as for steps along the sides of the home that were previously steep and unmanageable. We planted close to 200 perennials and shrubs throughout the landscaping as well as several ornamental grasses and a large aspen clump. We installed about 120 square feet of stamped and colored concrete for a path from the front to the back yard. We finished the project by installing about 20 low voltage landscape lights throughout the new design. Please be sure to join us in the next video as we walk through the project just before dark and get a shot of the beautiful landscape with lights on.
