As you begin to visualize how to improve your property and fix a section of a retaining wall, you should make sure that your repair is going to enhance your whole property.  This North Andover family had a retaining wall that was no longer structurally sound and they asked us to design a new front entrance way.  After listening to their goals, we decided that it was best to natural, rustic look of the property and the neighborhood.

We excavated the existing wall and the base to the wall, while preserving many of the natural stones as we would be able to use most of these stones in the new structural retaining wall.

As we excavated, we ensured that we made the excavated area wide enough for us to properly  build the back of the wall and install the proper amount of drainage stone and pipe.
