Landforms would like to announce another landscape improvement award from the Michigan Green Industry Association (MGIA). A client in Milford wanted more light and better access to their basement. So we brought in Capaldi Building Company to do the interior and foundation work. We have been working with the Capaldi Building Company for the past 8 years.
We handled the planning, excavation, site work and landscaping. We excavated the wall down past the footing to add additional footing to stop frost from creeping down to the basement floor. Then we excavated back from the wall out to accommodate the steps and landings. Our client wanted it to look as natural as possible. Since they are both State of Michigan Master Gardner’s we included several planting pockets and utilized boulders and natural cut stone steps. We installed a new door in place of the old. We spaced pavers 1/4″ and based with clean stone down to the original drain tile of the home. This allows any excess water to fall into the walkout at the landing (bottom). All of the surface water was redirected to flow away from the opening.
We would like to thank the Watsons for the project and the MGIA for our award.
