ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Our customers had a cramped area out of the front of their home where a basement walkout was located and surrounded by the old failing timber retaining wall. After removing the old wall we cut out the hill and built one tall segmental retaining wall instead of two tiers like before that took up precious space. This opened up the area in front of the walkout which is now used for grilling, outdoor entertaining, and welcoming guests to the home.
For this SRW or segmental retaining wall we used a straight face block in a blended color that went nicely with the home and added cut-to-fit caps for a finished look. In addition to the SRW, our project included perennials and shrubs, edging, decorative rock, a set of steps through the middle of the wall, and some work strengthening a rock pathway and steps around the home. We finished off the project by adding black dirt over the yard portion of our work area and seeding the dense shade area.
