Course Projects!

Last week the crew at Kemper Lakes constructed the retaining wall behind the clubhouse.  We were able to complete this project in house.

First, a 6-8” deep limestone base is constructed.  The limestone is then compacted and laser leveled. 

Once the base was completed, we began construction of the wall.

After construction, drainage and pea gravel are added to prevent water from sitting behind the wall.  This process also minimizes the risk of potential frost heaves during the winter months that can push the wall out of the place.

And…the finished product!
