The newly poured concrete sub-base floor has hardened enough that the wood forms can be removed.
The next step in renovating this raised terrace and installing thin-stone veneer is to apply wire mesh to the block walls and then a “scratch coat” of cement (see pic above).
Now the piers have to be formed with plywood and fitted over the vertical reinforcement rods and electrical conduit.
Everything has to line up precisely so that the thin-stone veneer, bluestone step treads and decorative railings fit correctly.
With all the base construction in place on the terrace, the mason begins setting the “thin-stone” veneer.
Care must be taken to select stones so there is a pleasing arrangement of sizes and color tones. This is the same attention to detail you would have with a “full-sized” stone veneer.

Landscapes are complex, and shortcomings anywhere in the process can affect the project… and your peace of mind.
My approach is process-oriented. I break things down from planning to implementation — and make sure everyone is kept informed.
My goal is to alleviate concerns such as design decisions, costs, workmanship and material quality. I want folks to stress less and actually enjoy the process.
