Retaining Walls and Steps in Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, NY.
At Lehigh, we believe that a good retaining wall is a work of art and engineering and there is no room to cut corners. We carefully prepare the site, use high quality materials, and adhere to strict industry-leading installation practices. Read below to see what goes into the creation of beautiful and functional retaining walls and steps that will stand the test of time!
We compact the excavated subgrade soil before the addition of base course material to increase the density and load bearing capacity of the soil.
The excavated area will be a minimum of 6″ greater in size than the finished paver area on both sides when possible, to insure proper drainage and proper stability of the edge restraint.
Geo-textile fabric is used between the subgrade and base material to eliminate any migration of base material into the subgrade soil.
The base course will be installed in 2″ lifts to create proper density: a minimum of 12″ on patios & walks, 18″ on driveways.
Larger compactor means more compaction, means less settling for your project.
Polymeric sand is used on all jobs to seal joints, not just some, but all.
Compaction after paver installation is complete, using a poly-urethane pad to reduce marking and breaking of pavers.
All pavements will be graded with proper pitch to handle any drainage issue.
All paver products have a lifetime warranty (this is not true with a natural stone)
Lehigh Lawns and Landscaping provides a limited 5 year warranty on the workmanship of their installations.
Every wall has a 12″ base, 6″ on each side when available; 4″ PVC footing drain and geo-textile woven fabric (geo-grid is used when necessary.
