I really want to remove part of the retaining wall.
Thanks to the builder...ok, it's been 26 years but this is just another of MANY construction issues over the years...the construction trash has finally decomposed resulting in a sinkhole, causing damage to the retaining wall as well as to a 3 year old driveway. The wall is hollow concrete block and I suspect no footers. My hope is to remove the lower sections of the wall, slope the ground behind it up to the property line/grade level and add landscaping for erosion control. This section of the driveway will need repair as well. I thought that would be a good time to add a curb to control water run off. Also. eliminating this section of the wall will make it easier to back out of the side entry garage. Nope, no one has backed into the wall causing the damage. What do you think?
