The Process of Building a Retaining Wall, and How to Do It Right?
Turning retaining wall ideas into action is not an easy thing to do. First, we prepare solid base, which is the most important step in the retaining wall installation process. After that, we build retaining wall itself. Even if it is an armour stone retaining wall with big gaps in between stones, it is important to add crushed stone beside the wall. This will help to provide proper drainage. Of course, there are much more important things to keep in mind during construction, including reinforcement grid directing pressure downwards, rather than against the blocks or timber. Thanks to many years of experience in landscaping, we know exactly how to build a retaining wall and Oaks Home Services is the best company in Greater Toronto Area to entrust with this task!
