As the summer heats up, so does the landscaping around Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley Region. KGH Equipment’s team has been busy completing multiple landscaping jobs from laying out sod to building a variety of retaining walls and leveling out backyards.
Recently, KGH Equipment completed a 5 meter 2 tier rock wall at a residential house in the eastern hillsides of Chilliwack.
The hillside presented challenging conditions for a variety of reason. The hill features a steeply graded slope with over an 8 meter drop in elevation. The property is the last lot against the mountain which provides minimal room to work with.
The KGH Equipment team worked closely with an engineer to ensure the project was done safely and to code. The project used imported gravel and boulders in addition to a geogrid, a geosynthetic material used to reinforce soils and similar material on retaining walls.
Two of KGH Equipment’s excavators were used in this project. The fleet’s Kobelco 210 excavator was used to pass the rocks down from the road height to a Kubota 80 excavator installing the rocks
