This was a fun project. We coupled a retaining wall with a fence to create one structure. There is a French drain at the base of the wall to prevent hydro-static pressure. We then leveled the yard and placed sod. We also routed some downspouts underground to channel harmful water away from the home’s foundation.
This client had a steep, hard to maintain back yard that had virtually no usable space. We raised the elevation and included a French drain coupled with catch basins to address all pertinent issues.
