A Simple Refacing Solution with MagnumStone Retaining Walls
The landowners of this residential property were in search of a way to replace their deteriorating retaining wall. To avoid numerous challenges excavating and removing the wall, it was recommended to reface and upgrade the aging retaining wall with MagnumStone blocks as a simpler solution.
A Revitalized Property with Minimal Excavation
Removal of the initial wall would have resulted in the loss of the pool above, therefore the team at Savino Construction constructed this 300 sq. ft. (28 sq. m.) MagnumStone gravity retaining wall directly in front of the existing wall. The blocks are filled with clear crush gravel to add mass and improve drainage behind the blocks. This approach saved major time, costs and restored wall strength to protect the property.
Why Choose MagnumStone Retaining Walls?
The precast resiliency of MagnumStone retaining wall blocks, produced by Masters Concrete Products, were selected to securely reinforce the steep slope.
MagnumStone’s system offers natural stone aesthetics and a strong structural upgrade using half-high and standard blocks. The project became an exemplary retaining wall retrofit with MagnumStone’s everlasting durability and efficient installation process.
