Getting a new retaining wall is easy! Sometimes, changing hardscape features can be exhausting and time-consuming. When you work with the professionals at Atlantic Maintenance Group, you know that the results will be amazing each and every time. So whether you are going brick by brick or you want a different material, here are some tips for you to follow!
Reasons to Repair or Rebuild
Once they are assembled and installed, retaining walls bring your hardscape some much-needed relief. Gravity is heavy, and the heavier something is, the more gravity will push on it. It’s why we stick to the ground most of the time, but astronauts can bounce around on the moon – gravity is much lower there! We’re not in a position to build walls up there, so let’s think closer to home. When the wall starts to lean, that’s when you need to address it. You will also need to restore backings that help support the wall, and restore drainage functionality.
Potential Holdups and Delays
By thinking ahead, you can plan for any problems. These issues will slow down the process, and with warmer weather around the corner, sprucing up your lawn and landscapes demands speed and efficiency. Get some compacted gravel to help counterbalance the weight pressing on the wall due to soil erosion. Tree roots can also cause plenty of havoc, so if that is something you are worried about, don’t hesitate to get in touch!
Call on Professional Expertise
As we said before, the experts here at AMG strive to exceed all of your expectations. Higher retaining walls are more difficult to work with and are that much more dangerous. Cutting down and moving large trees is also a DIY project that homeowners should avoid as much as possible. Whether your goal is to repair an existing wall or tear it down, you should wait and let hardscape experts with the necessary experience to do it well. The wait is going to be worth it!
