Building Natural Stone Retaining Wall Project SlideShowMovie

2 Guys, Small Track Loader, Pics shovels, and a little muscle. Roughly 100 ft Long by 4 ft Tall.  I now have a greater appreciation for the great pyramid builders; many of these stones weighed more than I do.

Retaining walls serve many purposes and come in a wide variety of materials, shapes, colors, and sizes.  This retaining wall was constructed for the addition of 1) Off-Street Parking Area 2) Water Control 3) Side Entrance



Removing the Existing sidewalk and excavating the dirt using a small track loader- the perfect size for working in confined areas such as this.
