Sandstone retaining wall improves backyard appeal

Dallas-area member Jason Adams recently hired highly rated Pinckard Landscape Services of Bedford, Texas, to perform hardscaping and landscaping at his home in Southlake. The company removed and built a retaining wall and sodded part of his yard.

Here’s what Adams had to say about his experience: “Lon [Pinckard]’s team came out on Friday to demo and remove the existing retaining wall, which had seriously degraded and even rotted in places.

The following Monday, an even larger crew created a new mortared sandstone retaining wall. They worked hard and had the entire wall — approximately 75 linear feet — completed in just one day.

They’re artists with sandstone, shaping and chipping and breaking the large pieces to get just the shape they need for the next spot in the wall. They carefully worked around and restored existing sprinkler lines and heads.

The next day, a crew of two came back to lay down the sod on top of the newly elevated section of the yard behind the new wall. I’m quite pleased both in terms of the quality of the end product and the price I paid for the work. I recommend Lon Pinckard for any hardscaping that you might require.”
