August 2018 25 Left Landscape contractor, Big Bull Retaining Wall Systems, LLC, worked with Ghidorzi Construction Company to create an immense engineered and tiered retaining wall needed to stabilize the intense slopes and grades at the newly built Ascension Medical Group Clinic in Wausau, Wisconsin. A big challenge was the site's small size, which required care- ful coordination for block delivery on an as-needed basis to assure there was always ample room to work. Top Right Materials supplier Oberfields LLC of Ohio helped transform this steep, unusable front yard with 800-square-feet of Kodah large retaining blocks that imitate snapped limestone, to create terraces that turned previously abrupt slopes into an aesthetically pleasing functional space for the homeowner. Bottom Right A total of 3,150 square feet of Outcropping large retaining blocks were supplied by R.I. Lampus Com- pany of Pennsylvania on a complex project that required an 18-foot-high wall to support the earth around this tall RV garage. Small block Belvedere embellishments for a bridge leading into a governor's driveway finished the project.
