The original wall was a pre-existing rotting railroad tie wall, which had long since lost its visual appeal and practical purpose.
The replacement wall was a 2 to 4 foot high precast block wall, using a Bestway Stone Parkwall product. Wall was set on a ¾ inch gravel base with non-woven filter fabric to separate the soil from clear gravel used as backfill. Perforated socked weeping tile was installed behind the wall for drainage and a geo-grid mesh tie-back installed every 2 courses for structural support. Parkwall coping was installed to finish top of wall.
A mixture of landscape materials was installed atop the wall for a visually appealing garden. A combination of Armour Stone nestled amongst a bed of River Rock create a visual appeal while allowing low-maintenance care.
