Much of the lot that the Patel residence sits on had proven to be unusable. With a severe slope running down to a creek and the associated drainage problems, the backyard did not provide adequate play areas for the family and pets. The construction of a retaining wall, fill dirt and fencing combined to create a safe playing area that was sodded to create an expansive lawn with a safety fence.
Types of Work
- Constructing a retaining wall, installing fill dirt and grading
- Storm drainage was planned and installed to eliminate erosion of the creek bed
- Large sodded area was laid and irrigation installed
- Fencing was added across the back for safety and security
A project of this nature dramatically improved the usability of the backyard as a safe play area for kids and pets and could ultimately house a pool. Adding accent lighting and new plantings are the finishing touches to this project.
