Im just checking on prices. My guy charges $800 per retaining wall up to 100'.
In Atl that's a good deal.
Most times I see around $1300 as a starting point.
You want his number? He's based over in Woodstock but travels if he needs to
That's a great price. Treat him well!
Agreed. That's pretty cheap. Keep using him! My guy would charge about double that.
But only by rail

I have an engineer that usually charges $700 to $800 for engineering retaining walls and he does all our walls.
Real simple - he works as an engineer for a HUGE, INTERNATIONAL, construction company full time. And has a moonlighting engineering business on the side.
So you are hiring a lowballer?
That's kinda an ignorant and non-productive comment. Typical of you.
It's called smart business, buy smart and sell smart. Something many can't grasp, hence the reason most hardscapers don't make it longer than 5 yrs.......
The reason most hardscapers go out of business in my market is because there is a very small market for hardscapers only. Most landscape companies these days will take a job from the design/planning stage all the way through to when the sod is laid. Yes there will be a sub or 2 on some larger projects but for the most part people these days want one stop shopping. I don't do commercial work but that market does sometimes separate hard and softscape. Most of those jobs are for a 1/3 of what I would charge. Different strokes as they say.
