Grading on a curve

Here’s a recent paver project we did. This is a small project that looks pretty unassuming at first glance. multigradepavers

You might not be able to tell, but there’s a large tree root growing here– the concrete sidewalk panel was suspended half in the air (like a see-saw!), lifted off the ground by the root.

Our crew installed these pavers on more than half a dozen distinct grades so that the tree root can grow and shift without breaking the pathway. The pavers will shift and adjust to the root’s growth. This is a common concern in older construction areas. The customer agreed that our paver solution fit in nicely with the look of this particular downtown Vancouver neighborhood.
