Pricing Factors for Retaining Walls, Design
There are many factors to consider when pricing your
retaining wall(s) project(s). These factors include the retaining wall’s design,
the installation, construction of retaining walls, land excavation, excavation
equipment rental, sod,
turf, lawn installation and grass seeding, recessed or decorative exterior
lighting, stone, other materials, and labor expenses.
Of course, you need to consider how a retaining wall—even a simple one—can affect
drainage (you may need a drainage
system), water runoff in downpours, and how the new
retaining wall will fit with existing hardscaping
As an example of how pricing can vary, consider a
concrete driveway retaining wall; undoubtedly, it will be less expensive than multi-faceted,
terraced stonework retaining walls designed with decorative lighting and
Integrating New Retaining Walls into
Landscapes and Permits
Retaining walls, designed
for integration into an already designed landscape or hardscapes
(pool areas, decks, patios, etc.) can also increase your expenses. Also, matching
previous work can be meticulous, time-consuming and even expensive.
Also, find out if you need permits for excavation and
construction. All of these factors change work /labor estimates when any
company estimates or offers a project bid.
With the age of some metropolitan residential properties
(and commercial properties) you may need local permits, specifically for
historic buildings—a real possibility for historical residences, such as in
downtown St. Charles. Many of these residential and commercial properties must
have retaining walls facing streets because of the extremely uneven terrain.
