ere is where the work leftoff in 2006. After putting in the stairs, I got to working on the new covered porch which went into January. Thus the walkyway had to wait until Spring to begin. On April 28, 2007 I rented a jack hammer and removed the old concrete walkway and all the debris so the new red brick one. By 2010, I started to have issues with the walkway. Mainly where the walkway meets the steps that go down to the driveway. Back in 2007, I needed a way to retain the walkway where it descends around the steps so I used so pieces of 6x6 pressure treated wood with spikes to hold it in place. It wasn't the best solution because the wood ended up moving enough for the dirt under the walkway to erode. A chipmunck managed to get underneath the walkway and make lots of tunnels for his new 'home'. So in 2011, I decided to remove 3 feet of bricks near the stairs and put in stone retaining walls. The cost for this new work ended up being about $900 ($600 for stones, $300 for railing(w/S&H) and $50 for plants.) The handrail came from www.zottolafab.com who were great in helping me custom make it to fit my exact needs.

I ripped off the flagstones by the time I took this picture with a hammer and chisel. This slab was 4-6 inch thick in places
