Hear what a customer says

“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

They made suggestions that were very helpful.Katelyn MorgnerKatelyn Morgner ★★★★★ Eric and his team did a great job. We would definitely use them again in the future.James MillerJames Miller ★★★★★ Came to my yard removed all my leaves worth every penny!Kate RichardsonKate Richardson ★★★★★ The Team did a great job raking the Fall leaves and removing branches. They are very professional and made sure that they understood the job before starting it. They work very hard and are very gracious. I have used them numerous times and always had an excellent experience and outcome.Jordan SJordan S ★★★★★ I've used His Workmanship several times now.

They were very professional and polite and fun. They gave me a few good suggestions which I liked. I will have them back again for another project.Sharon CostelloSharon Costello ★★★★★ On time and very professional. The young men got the job done. I needed a lot of leaves raked and bagged and that is exactly what they did. They guys could not have done a better job. Am very pleased. I would certainly use His Workmanship again.Robert LaingRobert Laing ★★★★★ These two young men were thoughtful, polite and hardworking. It was a pleasure having them here. They finished everything we had on our list thoroughly and on a timely basis.Want them back next time.One suggestion (even though it's none of my business):It is my understanding that the hourly fee is split evenly between the workers and the organization. I my opinion, this arrangement is a bit lopsided and would think that 60% workers and 40% organization might be a more equitable arrangement. Just a thought. Perhaps the additional 10% could be positioned as an incentive and earned based on the customer reviews they receive.David EhrlichDavid Ehrlich ★★★★★ Terrific job from beginning to end. Nice to see an A+ performance. Will use this team again for sure!Julie MullikinJulie Mullikin ★★★★★ I appreciated the prompt response and open line of communication in setting up services. Tanner and Josiah were pleasant young men who did a marvelous job raking my lawn. Circumstances had kept me from being able to do it myself and now I don't have to worry about it anymore. Thank you so very much.Robert BroRobert Bro ★★★★★ Nic was on time. He was friendly and polite.Brian JamesBrian James ★★★★★ I’ve used His Workmanship for two years now and have always been impressed by their work and professionalism. I was late booking this year for some end of season stuff but they were able to get me in within a few days. Workers are polite and engaging.Graham AndersonGraham Anderson ★★★★★ Every step of my experience with His Workmanship was great. From the owner initially responding to my post, to the website that clearly listed out service options, prices, and next steps. Follow up was fast and thorough, making sure both parties were clear on what I needed.Scheduling was fast and flexible. The team was very responsive in the days prior confirming price, schedule, and scope of work. The day of the team was prompt and spent time listening and taking notes on exactly what I wanted them to accomplish. They even checked in half way through to make sure I was satisfied with the work so far.I’d be happy to hire this team again, and have recommended them to friends and family.js_loader

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.
