    One of our clients was having trouble selling their house and one of the complaints was that there was no back yard. There was a huge berm in the back that was so steep you couldn't walk up, and little to no grass. So we came in a made a change last week. Added a brick wall, (13) triple axle dump trucks with top soil, and then finished it off with some landscaping and sod.

    too bad we didnt get any pictures before the wall was there. Its hard to even remember what it looked like before anything was there.

    we just finished it saturday so the house hasn't sold YET, but hopefully soon. Shoot, these people got bank. They already bought a second house in this same neighborhood (this house is around 750k, and their new one was 950k and they have added some crazy stuff) including us re-landscaping some of the front and I did landscape lighting on it. This is their new house that just sits until this one sells..............must be tough :rolleyes:


    BTW, the POS holly's around the driveway are coming out soon, but we just landscaped up against the front of the house for now.

    What type of compaction equipment did you use behind the wall in the backfill zone?

    you talking about a T300? :laugh: We also put a fabric in between the wall and the dirt with a plastic liner for the water to get through. :usflag:
