Watch the start of landscaping construction on this Calgary yard where the new sports court was designed for backyard basketball, pickle ball and hockey in the winter with permanent boards.
Due to the slope in the yard, the first stage of construction is measuring out the space from the design plan, removing the sod and then starting to level the ground.
After digging the yard to level the sports court area, the first cement was poured to frame the sports court on the higher end of the property. This allowed the team to level the patio and prep the upper area including stairs with fill and rebar.
This trip with the cement truck could be handled by the team with wheel barrows and was timed perfectly to create a beautiful poured cement structure on the upper part of the yard.
The sports court floor was levelled and prepped with rebar for support. With the heat of the summer, the cement hardens quickly so the team has to be well organized to properly pour the cement into a clean level finish. Watch the team work their magic while they complete the cement work for the new sports court floor.
