Lot grading and retaining walls
- Lot grading must slope away from the house foundations, so that water doesn't collect against the structure of the home.
- Retaining walls 4ft and over (1.2M) requires to be engineered by a license professional.
- Without a design structure from an engineer, it will present a safety hazard with liability to the owner for claims of damages caused by it's destructive nature.
