Creating Mailboxes with MaytRx Wall Block

December 5, 2016

As we have talked about previously, the MaytRx Wall Stone has many uses. One of those uses is a mailbox. With the MaytRx Wall Stone being offered in the same colors as our pavers it is a nice complement to a new driveway and or walkway but also looks great by itself. For those who might be interested in building a mailbox as a Do-It-Yourself project or if you are just curious in how it is done, here are the steps:

step1

1. Excavate footing for new mailbox

step2

2.Place baserock in mailbox excavation

step3

3.Compact and level baserock

step4

4.Set 1st course of Maytrx Wall Stone. The corner pieces will need to be split so that there is texture on 3 sides.

step5

5.Set 2nd course of Maytrx Wall Stone. Repeat this step for the 3rd, 4th, and 5th courses.

step6

6.Set mailbox(es) into the 6th course. This will require additional pieces be cut to  for the 6th and 7th course to accommodate the  mailbox(es). You may add an additional full course below the mailbox(es) if you wish for them to be higher. In that scenario the 7th course and 8th course would need to be cut.

final

7. Add one complete course above the mailbox(es), then attach the mailbox doors and add the cap of your choice. This homeowner opted for a custom top but the MaytRx Cap is also a popular choice. View the gallery below  to see more mailboxes constructed with the MaytRx Wall Stone:
