Erosion is a natural, but potentially destructive process in
which soil is actually washed off your property. This
erosion can result in damage to trees, shrubs, and other
plantings, the collapse of a driveway, or even more serious
damage to your home or property.
A retaining wall can provide stability to a hillside, create new
and add a beautiful element to a sloping
Retaining walls can surround your
garden pond to give you both privacy and protection.
Most importantly, a retaining wall can take unusable, sloping hillsides and instead,
create new, usable "flat space" for your outdoor area.
Retaining walls are only as good as their construction. We
adhere to the highest design practices and standards when
designing and installing a retaining wall. If a retaining
wall, whether two feet or ten feet in length, stone or block, is not constructed
using the proper base preparation, drainage techniques, and
backfill compaction, it will shift or even collapse at some point
in the future.
Your sloped area may require an SRW (segmental retaining wall)
to control erosion of a hillside or other area. We use
geogrids, net-shaped synthetic polymer-coated fibers, to
reinforce the sloped area. These geogrids provide a
stabilizing force within the soil structure itself, which occurs
as the soil "fill" interlocks with the grid itself. A
properly installed geogrid can support the weight of automobiles
and even houses and other structures!
We understand the problems that can occur when a retaining wall
is improperly designed or installed. We do not cut corners
when installing retaining walls and you can rest assured that
your Auman Landscape, designed and installed, retaining wall
will provide many years of safety and security. Auman Landscape can either build stand-alone retaining walls or design and install
a retaining wall as part of your
next landscape design
