Well, looks like this thing is finally gonna get done.....not by me of course. We've decided to go with the original contractor who proposed a new wall to us nearly a year ago. The new wall will be built with aluminum sheet piles driven in front of the existing wall which will only be partially removed then back filled before installing aluminum tiebacks and an aluminum cap. We are meeting with the contractor tomorrow to finalize everything. Hopefully they can start sooner than later as I'll be doing a new look(landscaping and accents) to the back of the property during and after construction.
