This client's desire was to build a new home and garage on a very steep, problematic site where severe soil erosion had occurred. Our solution to the problem can be seen on the very detailed Grading Plan labeled GP-1. We developed a driveway profile and details to eliminate future erosion from occurring. The bottom of the slopes will be stabilized with stone fill benching (trenching). We took advantage of the need to bench the slope by providing planting plateaus. A continuous French drain wraps behind the house and garage, runs along the driveway where it outlets to existing ditches. All steep slopes above the stone benches will be topped with topsoil, fabric and seed for stabilization. This steep site will turn into a beautiful sculpted setting with a fabulous new home and garage.
