Finished rock wall, puddles and all!Luc's latest job, above, a long rock retaining wall that transitions the large hill above the resident's new house into a flat backyard. The past few weeks have been very wet with lots of rainfall, which poses unique challenges for building a rock wall, especially one like this that retains a hillside next to a house. Extra work was done to aid in drainage around and through the rock wall, including drain rock/gravel and a small culvert. Below are some pictures of the process:
