Designing Dreams and Building Memories
Whether you are looking for beauty, functionality or a combination of both, retaining walls are a great way to improve the value of your property. Retaining Walls can be constructed from a variety of materials including decorative, precast masonry units, pressure treated timbers or natural stone masonry. Whether your need is to structurally stabilize a difficult slope, raise or lower a portion of yard to gain more space, or simply create an elegant backdrop or seating wall, our designers will help you select the finest retaining wall materials to enhance the beauty and elegance of your project. Maybe this is the year you promised your children a play area but your property has a difficult slope; A strategically designed wall will lend the necessary support to allow for a level yard where the kids can swing, jump and run. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about terracing a backyard and putting in vegetables, herbs and flowers on each level…we have solutions for you. Maybe you just want a more elegant and graceful place to gather with your friends and family…how about sipping coffee on a natural stone knee wall with a built-in flower garden. But what if you need to brace up the side of a sinking driveway….well, big or small, big or small, our design team is READY!
You may have heard different stories about whether or not you should engineer and permit a retaining wall. There are a number of different governing codes, all of which depend on what city and or county you live in. A general guide is to know that walls exceeding 48” in height require a permit and walls exceeding 72” in height require both a permit AND engineering. No need to worry though, with our turnkey service, we take care of this for you. We have worked with virtually every building and planning department throughout the Metro Atlanta Area and can easily complete all the required paperwork to ensure compliance with local building codes. Additionally, during the Master Planning phase of your project, we will take care of site surveys, engineered drawings and site monitoring so you will never have to worry about cutting through the “red tape”.
