3 keys to retaining wall success

01

Excavation

 

in southwestern pa our soil conditions consist of clay and shale. clay and shale do not filter water well. it is very important to excavate and remove enough of this earth for proper installation.

02

compaction

your wall is only as good as the base it's built on. a well compacted base is critical for stability as well as compacted backfill. compacted angular stone locks in and doesn't allow for movement.

03

Drainage 

filtering water through the wall is critical. its a must to use plenty of stone for drainage to max the longevity of your retaining wall. every wall we build has a incorporated drainage pipe and stone backfill.
