Retaining Wall Repair Or Replacement
We specialize in rebuilding retaining walls that have failed and/or collapsed.
Retaining Wall Repairs
It's pretty common for us to get called out to repair an existing retaining wall that has collapsed or failed in some way. This could be an old wood retaining wall that is rotting away or a block wall that is bulging or on the verge of collapse if it has not collapsed already.
Typically we don't recommend "repairing" retaining walls. The wall has failed for a reason and that reason is typically poor construction or a poor choice of materials. When a wall has failed we will usually recommend tearing the wall out and replacing it for a variety of reasons. It's the more cost effective option in most situations.
Rebuilding Failed Retaining Walls
If your existing retaining wall has failed and needs to be replaced it's usually more cost effective to demolish the old wall, remove the materials, re-excavate the site, install a proper base, geo-grid if necessary, install drainage, and build the retaining wall properly.
We specialize in rebuilding retaining walls that have failed and would be happy to provide you with a consultation if you have a wall that you believe needs to be replaced.
Groundsmith is the BEST landscaping maintenance company I have used for 6 years now. When we first moved to Westerville, I was very disappointed in every company I used. They did not show up when they promised, and then made up excuses not to return for a few weeks due to weather. But, Groundsmith arrives each time they promised or scheduled, even if it sprinkles....as long as its not a down power. They mow perfectly, and when asked, they trim the shrubs perfectly. I am very, very pleased with Groundsmith, and so glad I found them. Carol Harris, Highland Lakes, Westerville, Ohio
Great crew starring Ruger & Mikey
I had a fairly large design build landscape/hardscape project that Groundsmith did for me. It included patio and landscaping around our house, pool, and barn. We also did some fertilizing and grass "rebooting". It was amazing how much I got done with one phone call. The suggestions and pricing were sensible and easy to understand. The leadership of Groundsmith has excellent values and it shows in how they treat their customers and employees. The crew was professional, responsive, on time, and addressed any questions or concerns promptly. I consider these guys my friends and look forward to having them take care of my landscape needs for years to come. Great Work Groundsmith!
Great company and good people that work for groundsmith. They have competitive pricing and a variety of services. Would recommend.
After many months of planning with my husband, I saw a landscaping truck at my neighbors house and decided to call and see if GroundSmith could help with what my husband and I were thinking about. GroundSmith is an incredible company and I am so pleased to recommend them to anyone who is in need of landscape help. They built a beautiful retainer wall for us. It was an absolute pleasure working with them from the planning stage to the completion. Their employees are VERY customer focused and professional! Thank you GroundSmith!!
We researched several landscaping companies and decided on Groundsmith. They did not disappoint! Todd is always very responsive, and the crew spent 8 hours in the hot sun doing summer cleanup after we moved in. Because of their hard work and reasonable pricing, we will be making Groundsmith our go-to for all landscaping maintenance and seasonal cleanup.
We've used Groundsmith for our ongoing lawn and landscape maintenance, and we've always been very pleased with their work. We often get compliments from friends and neighbors on how nice our yard looks. Highly recommend this service!
Todd and his crew are timely, meticulous, friendly, and well-priced! We have had a great experience with GroundSmith and would recommend them to anyone!
Choose The Right Retaining Wall Builder
Building a retaining wall isn't rocket science but it must be done right if you want the retaining wall to last!
You Want A Beautiful New Retaining Wall...?
There are literally hundreds of landscaping contractors you could choose from throughout our area to design and build your retaining wall. They range from small one man show type businesses to very large companies with lots of overhead.
Somewhere in the middle is the contractor that's probably best suited for your retaining wall construction project. Finding a landscaping contractor you can trust to take your vision and transform it from a beautiful design concept into reality is your ultimate goal.
You're not hiring a landscaper. You're hiring someone to improve your property. It's an important distinction.
What Should You Consider?
It can be overwhelming trying to figure out who to hire to design and build your new landscape. To make things easier when trying to determine who the right landscape design/build contractor is for your project is, start with these questions.
Do they specialize in design/build projects of the same scope and scale of the project you have envisioned for your property? If yes, how long have they been in business?
Do they have great reviews from other homeowners who've hired them to design and build their landscape?
Do they offer any type of workmanship warranty or any after sales service if there is ever a problem?
Do they have photos and references of the work they are capable of doing?
