Hillside retaining wall fails putting a home owners home in danger. The original retaining wall made with rail road ties rots out due to a broken water pipe under the patio that created an erosion problem that just got worse over time. At first the client just wanted the old retaining wall replaced with rail road ties, but we advised him that even though that would be a fast inexpensive project, in a year or two he might be right back in the same place having to replace it again.
So even though the project was expensive, the home owner decided to build something that once built, would never give him a problem again. That was a 60 foot retaining wall on a hillside, that once done not only permanently protected the house, it also added about 10 times as much yard to the home.
In the end we had a very happy client.
