About six years ago, Brad Smith and his crew turned my tiny Dundee backyard into an urban oasis with a pot fountain, an ornamental tree, trellises to block the unsightly elements (trash cans, etc) and beautiful plantings. Last Spring, he completely redid the gardens I have struggled with for years, putting in plants that were appropriate in size and sunlight needs. He also created beautiful window boxes and container gardens. He is prompt, friendly, reasonably priced and one of the only contractors I have ever worked with that gave me exactly what I hoped for.
Retaining walls can be a big undertaking. As a contractor I need to take into account each wall on a case by case basis. The types of materials that will be used and the ways your wall will be constructed are completely specific to your project. The thing to do when you have to do when you ask for bids is to ask questions.
What Kind Of Quality Are You Getting?
Here are some things that should be asked by any homeowner looking to have a retaining wall built:
What kind of block will you use and what are my options?
What will you use for a base and how deep will it be?
Do you compact your base?
How far back will you dig for backfill and what will you use to do it?
Are there any options for design elements?
I’m happy to answer all of those. We can take a simple wall and turn it into an eye catching design element that becomes more than you ever thought possible. We work with many suppliers to get you the right look for your taste. We can do complex curves and angular cuts that make for innovative designs. There’s no limit to what your retaining wall can look like.
Built To Last And Never Fail
We also build out each wall with stability always in mind. That’s why the more mundane things like base compacting and backfill materials are all taken into account and covered, so you’re not going to have to worry about your wall falling over. Each project is taken seriously, so it’s going to be a retaining wall that holds the earth back and stands strong for years to come.
