When you talk about retaining walls, homeowners think that the construction of retaining walls can cost you an arm and a leg. The truth is the price to build a retaining wall will vary among contractors and depend on many things.

Retaining walls are not landscaping work that you can do on your own. Building a retaining wall involves complex tasks that will need the expertise of builders like Kruzer Earthmoving. Hiring professional retaining wall contractors will ensure that the retaining wall is safe, stable, stylish, and adheres to industry standards. 

The duration it takes to complete a retaining wall is not the same for all projects. The size of the retaining walls, the retaining wall, the complexity, and the number of manpower and equipment will determine how long it takes to complete retaining walls. Small retaining wall projects take days, while some will take weeks or months to finish. 

Drainage is necessary for retaining walls to stop water from building up behind the wall, which might eventually cause the wall to collapse. To direct water away from behind the wall and out via weep holes, pipe drains or agricultural drainage pipes with perforations should be installed at the base of the wall. To maximise retaining wall drainage, the pipe should run the whole length of the wall and be periodically vented. A skilled retaining wall builder like Kruzer Earthmoving will have the knowledge required to plan and set up a drainage system for your retaining walls.
