Retaining Wall Complex

This project is in North Vancouver adjacent the Mosquito Creek Trail, most of the properties in this area drop into the ravine making large portions of the yard unusable.

 

We took what was a crumbling hill that was full of brambles and stones and built a series of retaining walls with a stair case on either side for easy access.  The back yard is now a massive vegetable garden where the client intends on spending her retierement.

 

We built the walls out of 4x6 treated lumber and filled the stair treads with gravel, and one year later came back to install pavers after the gravel settling had occured. 

 

We completed the project on time and on budget.  We've been back to build a deck with a roof over top and install a shed near the house.  The client is growing vegetables and loving her new usable yard.
