The original wooden railroad tie retaining wall was in disrepair. Our client’s property is located in a very hilly neighborhood with extreme grade changes in the front of the house.
Replace the single railroad tie retaining wall a multilevel block retaining wall design. Each of the retaining walls are 36″ high covering the same length as the original. In between the wall there is landscape bed suitable for plants or grass. Drainage was built into both walls running on the far corner of the property to help ensure the longevity of the wall and keep drainage issues to a minimum. Much of the original landscape features were retained with minimal replanting needed.
