Does Your Retaining Wall Need Attention? Cumming , GA
retaining wall

Of all the structures around your home, you probably don’t worry very much about the condition of your retaining wall. Retaining walls are built to solve erosion and drainage issues on a sloped property. While there are many types, sizes and materials of retaining walls, they are all subject to structural damage or normal wear and tear over time. Ignoring retaining wall repairs or replacement could pose risks to your landscape as well as threaten the safety of your family and guests. In fact, retaining wall damage can even subject you to ramifications from not actively meeting specific building codes and regulations.

Reasons Why Retaining Walls Fail or Suffer Damage

Your retaining wall, even if it was built out of natural stone or brick, is vulnerable to structural damage. This can range from natural environmental factors that occur over time or premature failure due to poor construction. Here are the leading reasons why your retaining wall may need attention and repair:

  • Inadequate installation or construction
  • Poor quality of materials used in construction
  • Stress factors around the area or wall
  • Improper drainage or erosion issues

How To Tell If Your Retaining Wall Needs Repair

Whether it has been 10 weeks or 10 years, there are certain signs you should look for in your retaining wall to determine if you need a professional inspection from our team at Everlast Lawns & Landscapes:

  • Bowed, tilted walls
  • Crumbling or creaking pavers
  • Wall separating from main structure
  • Large splits or multiple cracks
  • Moving soil, signs of erosion in landscape

Your retaining wall should serve as a functional solution to your steep landscape but also be a safe and attractive structure on your property. At Everlast Lawns & Landscapes, we understand what it takes to properly install your retaining wall to maximize its lifespan, but we can also repair your existing retaining wall if it is damaged or failing. Call today to get your estimate in the greater Alpharetta area.

Eliza Barnhill

So far so good! Found Everlast through Next Door and signed up for monthly service. After meeting with Chris we learned about their other services and got new landscape lights installed and some cleanup work in the front and backyard. Happy to say the lights look amazing, and the initial cleanup was so promising that we’re on our second round of projects with them in just a couple weeks. Great personalized service and they’ve addressed any issues and requests that have popped up along the way. Excited to see the final product once it’s all finished.

Amanda Miller

Chris and team did an awesome job on our landscaping project. They had great ideas, were easy to work with and took time to listen to what we wanted to accomplish. The staff was always prompt, took care of our property and were very professional. I would highly recommend them, as the finished project looks great and their prices are very reasonable.

Ebba Hansen

Starting using them last spring for weekly mowing and trim. I’ve been very happy with the job they’ve done. Competitively priced. Just hired to overseed the backyard. They scheduled and completed the job quickly. Very professional.

Rich Markham

Chris was on time for the initial estimate. Gave us a fair price. Guys did the job on schedule. Had a little issue, but Chris got the team out to resolve quickly. Highly recommend this company.

Andrea Carver

I loved working with Everlast Lawns & Landscaping. I had an eyesore of a retaining wall that I hated. Working with Chris to redesign it with Allen blocks made such a difference. I appreciate his expertise and patience answering all my questions promptly and completely. Great job.

Deborah Woodworth

We highly recommend Everlast Lawn and Landscapes. We are new to the area, we saw their truck at a neighbors home and called them. Friendly, professional and prompt. They did a fantastic job on the clean up of our backyard and we are happy with the weekly lawn maintenance. But just as importantly we really appreciate their timely responses to any inquiry we may have had.
