“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

Great workers. Fast, friendly, and attentive to details.
Finally found a crew that understands how to transplant plants and do weeding. Very polite and thorough crew
The young men did an excellent job with my landscaping projects. They were efficient, effective and quick. I appreciate their politeness and hard work. I will definitely call His Workmanship in the future!
These young men worked diligently and accomplished the project very timely.
Crew was on time, worked quick and did the job exactly as requested. Would definitely hire again!
Gavin & Benji arrived early and worked diligently to navigate two stairways with four large pieces of furniture. This was such a good solution for my husband and me since we don't have the strength (or the backs) to do it ourselves.
As my husband is having medical issues and also caring for my 95 year old mother, the yard has gotten away from me. I asked the guys for some weeding help - they did a wonderful job! Not only that, but they were 2 very responsible young men - mature beyond their years! I would not hesitate to contact His Workmanship in the future and will recommend them highly!
The 2 young men (Cam and Seth) that came to my father's home to weed the yard worked during the heat wave and cleared so many of the weeds. I am hiring them again to complete the yard. They are worth the money! 🏡
Very professional and got the job done per my request.
Sam and Silas came at the expected time and were very nice and respectful. We went around yard to see what needed to be done and were very knowledgeable about the jobs. They worked hard and even helped my husband with some yard work. They accomplished all jobs. We would love to have them back
I could not have been more pleased. In 3 hrs. they picked every weed by hand, poured 24 bags of mulch so weeds would not come back, And I have 1/2 acre of land. They were both professional, respectable and very nice young men and very hard, fast workers. They accomplished all the yard work that I needed done. I highly recommend that you use this company for any work you need done. I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
From contact to booking to schedule availability to accountability and job completion, HisWorkmanship (Logan & Chris) are unrivaled in customer service with the highest level of execution. Only thing I wish was that I'd remembered to take before/after but it wouldn't have captured their energy tackling this project successfully. Communication and follow through was superb throughout!Respectful, responsible, and most highly recommended!
Wonderful company! Great crew! Will definitely use again.
These two young men were thorough, professional, courteous, and prompt. In addition, their fees are very reasonable! I’m looking forward to using their service again.
Communication and scheduling was easy and efficient, the young men showed up on time, were polite and completed everything I asked for
The Team did a great job raking leaves and removing weeds. 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.
We cannot say enough good things about My Workmanship. Communication with Eric was clear and fantastic start to finish. The workers, Nate and Evan were prompt, courteous, hardworking and did a fantastic job. We are just thrilled and will definitely recommend this service to others. Thank you.Elizabeth and Alan FletcherMahtomedi, MN
The crew, Nick and Marco, arrived on time. They were courteous and did a really good job. Price was as advertised. Would use them again.
I would definitely hire again. The two young men worked hard to accomplish what I asked them to do.
The crew showed up early and were very kind. They worked very hard and did amazing work!! I will definitely reach out to them again. Enjoy the before and after photos!

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.
