Leaning retaining wall
Before the geo-lock anchor system was installed, you can see how much this retaining wall was leaning from the weight of the soil is was holding up.

Crews work to install a geo-lock anchor system
Jason Autry works to install a geo-lock anchor system to save this retaining wall from toppling over from the weight of the soil pressing on it.

The wall plates shown here face away from the property and towards the woods so they aren't seen.
AFTER: the wall is secure and considerably straighter than the starting point
The failing retaining wall has been stabilized and significantly straightened. It will continue to straighten even more over time.
The only part of the retaining wall that wasn't failing
This view shows how the yard goes all the way up to the retaining wall. Other photos show how steep the drop off is beyond the wall. The combined pictures give an idea of how much pressure this retaining wall was enduring. The geo lock wall anchor system will keep it secure and stand it back up straight.
Drop off at the property line beyond the retaining wall
This picture shows the drop off that occurs outside the property line. Another picture shows how the lawn comes all the way up to the retaining wall. Because of this, you can imagine how much pressure is on this retaining wall.
