We love our city and enjoy giving back to the local community. In 2014, we salvaged some beautiful historic brick from a client and partnered with Batchelder & Collins for the remainder of the materials to create brick beds for the 29th St Peace Garden, a community garden in Park Place, Norfolk, VA. 
Tidewater Masonry and volunteers designed and constructed two new flowerbeds from the reclaimed brick and also built a retaining wall for the compost pile. This project supported the garden effort and helped establish a welcoming environment for local residents to grow, gather, learn and strengthen ties in our community.
