Retaining Wall Project in Palisades
This Upper NW DC client's lower retaining wall was crumbling and she needed it completely rebuilt to retain the soil. We chose a dry stacked wall not only to maintain the current aesthetic, but also to allow for proper drainage. We also repaired the large retaining wall behind it because some of the stones were coming loose. This craft has been used for thousands of years. Stone has been quarried, hauled, stacked, shaped, laid, mortared, set, shimmed, and carved just like this with craft and ingenuity.
