These are retaining wall and concrete projects we have recently completed in Cumming, Georgia.

New Retaining Walls

Our customer wanted to increase the amount of functional space on his property which was essentially unusable due to a steep slope.

The property was located atop a large hill near Lake Lanier. The homeowner caught glances at the lake in the fall when the trees and brush behind the home lost their foliage.

The homeowner requested an estimate to remove the trees, clean out the dense thickets behind the house and to install a new retaining wall system so that he could have a flat area for a swimming pool and playground for his child.

Two large retaining walls were required to achieve the homeowner’s objective. The first retaining wall supports the home and the second supports the swimming pool and the child’s new play area. The two retaining walls are connected by stairs on the pool side, and on the kids play area side the retaining wall makes a j-shape toward the upper wall.

To protect people from falls both areas include a safety rail system. Locking gates were also added to prevent children in the play area access to the pool area when unattended by an adult.
