In keeping with the eco mantra of Reuse – Recycle – Reclaim to avoid waste, we broke up the old and ugly aggregate concrete back patio of the home at 1566 Sanchez (at the suggestion of our landscape architect, Scott Lewis)…

 

…and re-used the chunks to build a dry-stack wall that looks like stacked stone.

The new wall is not only attractive, but keeping the concrete on-site saved us dumping charges, materials costs which we would have had to incur to build a brand new wall, and reduced our carbon footprint by avoiding all of the fuel consumption for the trucks that would have had to haul it off.
