New Retaining Wall

Fed up with the chipmunk motel and a colony of bees living in an old boulder retaining wall that runs parallel with a clients main entry, they decided it was time for a change.  After demoing and hauling off the old wall, we installed the proper gravel base and built a new, chipmunk free, wall using 3″ wall block capped with a course of 12″x2″ granite.  We finished the project off by removing all the old soil from the foot of the wall and replacing it with a 50/50 mix of compost and new soil so the homeowner could replant her garden.
