Retaining Wall, Grading and New Brick Patio – Franklin, WI
The backyard of this home in Franklin, WI was struggling from severe grading and water issues for years. Over time, the extensive amount of water had caused major water damage in the basement, the patio to settle and the large retaining wall to shift. The only approach to solve this significant issue was to start over completely with the entire area and to engineer the water away from the home with proper grading and swales. Then once the water is finally managed properly, a new brick patio and Keystone retaining wall were installed.
The project begins by removing the existing features which includes the patio, the row of shrubs in front of the retaining wall and lastly the large retaining wall. Grading is then taking place within the area above the wall to help control even more water from entering this already challenged area.
