Custom Retaining Walls in Indianapolis
Retaining walls can be the most beautiful and visually appealing part of any property if done properly. Retaining walls can be built just to add a beautiful border to your landscaping or to retain soil along slopes that would move downward because of gravity.
How we go about building this is by starting from the project plan and foundation up.
Most walls you see might be a little wavy and not level, as well as leaning out away from the area that you are trying to retain.
This occurs due to a shallow foundation and by not providing back pressure support. We don’t do this. We build the foundation between 4”-6” of compacted gravel with a sunken footer row of block.
Depending on the size of the wall, we then use backfill material to build an anchoring system using Geo-textile fabric to ensure that the wall stays perfect as long as possible.
