    did you just wheel/track pack the fill, or use vibratory compactor?

    but you didn't show how you did it.
    was it anything other than packing dirt down?

    Where is the drainage for the new soil slope? Erosion protection?

    I am currently working on a failing retaining wall at my Kentucky home. My neighborhood is made of hills, slopes and very little flat land. The pricing is out of sight, I'm going to suggest not doing a retaining wall but landscape steps, thanks to your video. It will be interesting to see what reactions I'm going to get. Thank you

    not knowing much about earthwork ,would need to get a engineer to calc all that out and then some way to compact the dirt

    Stanley, great videos.My wife and I have recently moved from Los Angeles to Tennessee and are closing on 1 1/2 acre with ranch style home existing but our back yard looks straight up into the trees and step slope. Question: would the process be similar with cutting out in a hillside and moving that dirt to the front which could use some leveling?

    stanley, i have a retaining wall that is full of dirt and there is a house around 15 feet above where the wall begins, the wall is about a 15 ft slope going upwards. with 2 moderately sized trees around 35 years old. i want to completely remove this big patch of dirt. which this big dirt wall is about 50 ft in width as well. and was thinking to add some storage in that area. if i were to move dirt out of the wall would it affect my neighbor above it?

    What is your thinking behind using the grapple instead of a bucket and thumb on that hoe?  Is weight the reason for your decision.

  • Jon Mazza 3 months ago

    Long time viewer. Love the videos and knowledge you share. The amount of work you put into the videos really show though. Do you every factor in the long term cost of maintenance? Also, it looks really difficult and dangerous to mow that hill!

    Wish I could give this video a million likes. I am now seeing this after watching the retaining wall video. I may go with this to try to save my client some money.
