In Depth Analysis
A large retaining wall was needed to support the slope for the building of this new custom home in Los Angeles. The shoring system needed to contour the existing slope so that a serpentine driveway could be constructed down to the garages below. The wall needed to look like the existing rock formations in the area and needed multiple planter pockets, drip lines, and a network of drainage systems. The Owners chose the Corona Granite finish as the accepted finish.
