Q. How Can I Replace a Concrete Paver?

A. One of the major advantages of using concrete pavers, is the ability to remove individual pavers. To simply remove an individual paver, you need to remove the sand from around the paver edges. Using two flat headed screwdrivers, gently wedge them into the joints of the pavers and rock the paver back and forth. You will be able to lift the paver out with the screwdriver.

Q. How high can a retaining wall be built?

A. The exact height a wall can be built depends on the type of unit, soil conditions, amount of batter used, and surcharge on top of wall. Basic landscaping walls can be constructed between 2 and 6 feet while Segmental Retaining Walls such as the Keystone Compac and Keystone Standard can be constructed in excess of 50 feet but must be engineered. A retaining wall higher than 4 feet measured from the bottom of the footing to the top of the wall requires a permit.
