WEST SEATTLE PROJECT
The back yard of the home had an 8-foot-tall wood retaining wall that was failing.
The wall can be seen here.
There is AstroTurf in the back yard
Our goal was to remove the turf, wood wall and excavate the dirt behind the wall, then build a new block wall.
The AstroTurf was removed.
Here is the failing wood retaining. Bushes and foliage in front of the wall was removed.
A safety barrier was put into place as the wall overlooks a steep hill.
The excavator was brought in from the side of the home.
The brick wall was cut in order to gain access.
Our conveyor system was set up on the side of the home for dirt removal.
The process of digging up the yard began along with cutting the wood wall into manageable sections.
Another shot of the conveyor system which dumped the dirt right into our dump trucks.
Side of home
The dirt removed was going to be replaced with Structural Styrofoam Blocks.
Many cubic yards were removed.
Portions of the wall are cut as the dirt is being removed.
Wood portions of the retaining wall being removed
Here is a view of the current wood retaining wall and the kind of shape it was in.
Another view of the failing wall.
About half-way across the wall.
All of the dirt pictured still needs to come out.
