    Does anyone have any experience landscaping a building that is being constructed on a raised pad (5 ft high)?? There is a building that is being designed that is being esentially lifted out of the floodplain requiring the builder create a 5 ft pad (out of compacted soil. The lot is about an acre so tradtional grading will be extremely expensive. Tiering with retaining walls is pretty much out of the picture given property / building use (lots of little feet). I will try to post some pictures of the site later this week. I am not expecting to see any actual suggestions given the limited scope but would love to hear any. I would love to talk with someone that may have had to undertake a project like this or see some pics.

    Thanks in advance.
