Solving Two Problems with One Wall
Converting an old warehouse into an office building in Hudson, Wis., required the excavation of a slope and the building of a retaining wall to create a much-needed parking lot.
In addition, the project included rain gardens that were was designed to limit stormwater runoff into the St. Croix River, a national wild and scenic riverway, which runs parallel to the property on the other side of the paved trail.
For the 500-foot-long wall, Landscape Reflections Inc. of Oakdale, Minn., installed 3,800 square feet of VERSA-LOK Standard units and 2,200 square yards of the manufacturer’s geogrid soil reinforcement product.
