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.
We guttered this entire home to protect the foundation. All of the downspouts are routed to the street (85′) with SDR35-sewer grade pipe. This yard won’t be soggy anytime soon!
