December 2006 the Thomason family started their project with us. Customer had a very good idea of what they wanted. This particular customer was referred to us by the Vance Family (Customer). We started the Allan Block retaining wall 8 feet below the house lower level by where the bobcat is in the picture. The footing was installed and we started building the wall, but first the 6-inch pipes had to be run under the retaining wall as you can see on the below right picture.
We had an issue with the water running through the center of the backyard from the neighbor’s houses. The customer knew that building something to catch the water and running the 6-inch pipes under ground 100 feet long would fix the problem as you can see below. The drainage worked perfectly.
Allan Block retaining walls have to be built with 57 stone gravel, geogrid, silk material, and compacted fill dirt.
We finished the retaining wall and new irrigation in approx. 10 days.
The wall has 110 feet long 6 feet in the highest point.
Below is the other part of the project, where a stamped concrete patio was built, natural flagstone steps, and flagstone retaining walls.
The driveway has a 12X12 catch basin with the concrete edger to stop any erosion behind this point.
And finally but not last, the kids playground area.
The customer was fully satisfied and has a fenced flat backyard.
