Small Retaining Wall Project
This is my first year doing hardscaping on my own. Have worked in landscaping/hardscaping for a while but most was landscape work. Working up a proposal for what will be my first wall project. ICPI certified. Seems like a nice job to start with. Have never designed or estimated this work before so I have a few questions.
I am removing old wall and lighting on one side of driveway and installing new wall (29 linear ft) and lights, but homeowner wants to keep old steps and walkway.
House already has a mix of stone and brick so worried an EP Henry Wall will not fit in, so any input on that would help.
If excavated dirt is level and raise grade behind wall, and assuming new wall follows same line as old wall, should wall be height of the top step and then run an "L" carry it back to where the step meets the walkway?
On other side, just removing wood edging and putting new edge, probably cobble stone.
Thanks for any help. Trying to learn and do things right.
