“I heard about His Workmanship through a google search online and I’m so thankful that I did. Eric was quick to respond to my emails and got me on the schedule right away. I had a huge landscape project that ended up taking well over 100 hours of labor. Each of the crews showed up on time and worked very hard shoveling river rock. I would highly recommend His Workmanship.” – Candy

The crew arrived on time, very friendly and professional, and understood what I wanted. I have more work remaining and I will hire them again to complete. I highly recommend.
Gavin and Owen were right on time and very friendly. They did all the work asked in the time requested. They did this all in the pouring rain, and never stopped. They asked questions as they went and made all adjustments requested. Great work and highly recommend.
Friendly and efficient. Did a great job from start to finish.
I would recommend this service to anyone for sure! The college students were wonderful in every way, got what I needed done in quite expediently, and when left with more time, they went on to a few other jobs I had around the yard. Superior experience all around. 🙂
Highly recommend Workmanship to help clean up your garden and flower beds! Excellent service, attitude and care for meeting your needs. Eric is extremely prompt with response and Matt along with his partner worked hard to complete an overwhelming project I couldn’t personally accomplish. The best compliment I can give is, I’ll be hiring them for return visit.
Adrian and Tanner worked hard and got everything done that I asked.
Very polite. Very professional.
His Workmanship crew was very prompt, thorough, and cooperative. Very happy with the work they did - will hire them again!
We were so pleased with the quality of the work , we have asked them back to do more work !
This is the 2nd time I have had His Workmanship crew out, and the 2nd time they did a wonderful job weeding and cutting - very happy! Very polite and very thorough. I have a larger yard than I thought! Thanks again!
The guys pulled weeds and totally cleaned out my flower bed on my patio. Very good job, and fast.
Arrived on time, communication with the crew was clear, and they accomplished everything contracted in the time expected. Will use again for next project.
This is a great little company to work with! From scheduling to the completion, all His Workmanship employees are kind, courteous and the utmost professional. I will definitely be calling on them to help with more projects. They arrived on the scheduled day and time and worked like they were working on their own homes.GREAT experience! I highly recommend His Workmanship!
We were so pleased with this company and the workers that came to our house!!! All around 5 stars!!!
Amazing team, amazing communication, and a stellar job done by all. I can’t say enough good things about working with His Workmanship. Communication with Eric was exceptional. He promptly responded to our request for quote, followed up by scheduling our job within a week, and never left us hanging or wondering about our job status. We had a team of 4 guys for 8 hours to clean up a completely overgrown and out-of-control property. The team arrived promptly, listened carefully, and did everything that was asked of them. They worked well together as a group and individually. It was hot, and we had so many bushes, trees, and shrubs that needed to be removed as well as lots of weeding and mulching. They worked steadily from 9am until 5pm, and cleaned up nicely before they left. Highly recommend this company!
This company is professional and very prompt to respond and super nice guys as well. They did a great job with weeding and edging our beds. Will be doing business with them again!
The workers arrived promptly & immediately began what I had hired them to do. They worked efficiently & cleaned up after they were done.
The guys did an excellent job and finished weeding and mulching faster than expected! Would 100% hire again. 🙂
Cleanup of last year’s garden and completion of all the new planting accomplished in one visit by two very nice people. I strongly recommend this service.
Great work and great young men!! Highly recommend!

Frequently Asked Questions

Prices for landscape retaining walls range from $20 – $50 per square foot or $50 – $70 per hour. Some retaining wall companies are willing to offer labor only services and have the client provide all the materials. For DIY enthusiasts, this would save the most money by keeping overhead costs down. Click here to learn more about retaining wall prices.
After you’ve marked the area where the retaining wall will be installed, you’ll need to dig a trench that’s 4-6 inches deep. The trench should be deep enough to bury half of your first course of blocks. In other words, the trench should be twice as wide as a single block, most of which are 2-3 inches. Once you’ve removed the dirt, you need to tamp down the remaining soil.
You should fill your trench with a 2-3 inch layer of paver base. Use a metal rake to ensure the gravel is evenly distributed within the trench. Every inch of gravel you lay should be compacted before laying more. This can be done with a hand tamper. Having a solid base will serve as a firm foundation and will keep your retaining wall from slowly leaning over as the years go by.
Once you’ve dug your trench and laid your paver base, you’ll need to use a level to ensure the gravel is flat before you start laying your retaining wall blocks. This is the most challenging part of the process, but it’s critical to be certain that the first layer is completely level. If not, the courses on top will gradually get more and more uneven. In that case, you’ll need to remove the pavers and start over from the bottom.
All reinforced walls that are over 4 feet tall should have a toe drain installed. If it’s smaller than 4 feet, then you can get away without having drainage. For proper drainage, the first foot (12 inches) of space behind the wall should be filled with crushed stone. This will prevent water from puddling in soil and cause it to flow down to your drain hole.
An innovative way to repair a tilted retaining wall is to use helical anchors. The upside to this method is that you won’t need to tear down and restack the blocks. However, you’d need to hire a specialist and it’ll be expensive. The most common approach is to remove the blocks, regrade and relevel the base, and reinstall the blocks row by row. While doing this, be sure to use a level on each row to ensure it’s flat.
You should ask the retaining wall contractor for an estimate on the total cost for your retaining wall. Be ready to explain why you want a retaining wall and what your budget is for the project. Ask the retaining wall company how long they’ve been in business and how far out they are scheduled. Google their company name and read some reviews.

My name is Mike and this is my eighth summer since joining the His Workmanship network. I’ve been good friends with the owner ever since our college days. Our relationship has grown over the years and I felt very respected throughout the whole process. I can work when I want to work and I can take off however many days I need to rest. I would highly recommend for college students to get connected with the team at His Workmanship.
