Retaining Wall Installation in Augusta, GA

This recently completed project is an upgrade to an existing retaining wall for one of our existing customers in the Augusta area. They wanted more usable yard space for a seating area which we helped create. The first retaining wall on the bottom was installed by Between The Edges in the fall of 2013 with a straight face block. This fall, we came back with the same color block with a beveled face to show interest in the upper retaining wall.

Property Makeover in Edgefield, SC

It all started over the winter when the Browns’ decided they wanted to makeover their Edgefield, South Carolina property. After making arrangements and meeting numerous times with Jeremy Kelley, owner of Between the Edges, plans were drawn up to encompass all the changes they wanted for their home.

The venture began in the spring. The front, back, and side yards were reshaped and graded according to the agreed upon plan. The pool went in, as well as a retaining wall, to accommodate the new pool and deck areas. An irrigation system was installed to insure full coverage and viability of the sod, trees, plants, and shrubs. Then a large variety of trees and shrubs were installed throughout the entire property. A stone walkway, fire pit and paver patio were also included in the new makeover. The existing driveway was removed and replaced with new concrete and a parking pad. Finally, the existing deck was upgraded to Composite materials. It was a large project, but the outcome is beautiful.

Check out the before and after shots to see for yourself the total transformation of this Edgefield Property.

Choosing the Right Landscape Contractor for your Retaining Wall

Retaining walls serve a purpose as well as can be an aesthetically pleasing addition to a landscape.  There are retaining wall systems that hold earth and freestanding walls to define outdoor living areas or border shrub/flower beds.
When deciding on a contractor for your retaining wall project, there are many things to consider.  A good place to start is making sure they are a legitimate company.  A reputable contractor will have no problem getting the following information to you. If the contractor cannot provide these items, you may need to keep looking.
  • Business License 
  • Bond (if required by city)
  • Insurance-a certificate of insurance will be sent directly from the contractor’s agent (general liability, workers comp, etc.)
  • Permit for Project (if needed-depending on code for your city/county)
  • Engineer Design (if needed-depending on code for your city/county-normally when wall is over 4ft. in height).  Engineer Designs are being required by most cities and counties around the CSRA area for walls over 4′ tall.  If a contractor doesn’t know this, then they probably should not be doing the wall.
  • Location of Utility Services (to ensure the safety of underground utilities-occurs several days before project begins)
  • GSWCC (Georgia Soil & Water Conservation Commission) certification is required as well as a NCMA(National Concrete Masonry Association) Segmental Retaining Wall Installer certification is required to build or pull a permit for walls over 4′ tall in Columbia County, GA.

That is a lot to consider when you were first only thinking about getting the work done. Now throw on all the qualifications that landscaping contractors need to have in order to work, that can lead to an overwhelming experience.  Unfortunately we witness nightmare stories with retaining walls failing due to improper installation on a constant basis.
We at Between the Edges, can provide you with all the needed bonds, insurance, permits, etc. to make your decision, an easy one. Just tell us your visions  and let our team do the rest. You will be worry free knowing your project is in good hands. So sit back, give us a call, and let the landscaping begin!
