North Carolina Retaining Walls – Fun Depot

Located in the heart of beautiful Asheville, North Carolina, this site was long considered undeveloped. Developer David Day, with an engineering background and solid knowledge of segmental retaining walls saw a solution, CornerStone retaining walls ®. He selected CornerStone® retaining wall because of its proven performance in difficult applications combined with the ease of installation inherent in the patented system. This proved important, due to the intricate nature of the project. Aside from the sheer height of the design, there were multiple walls, radius’s and tiers tying back into each other. The curving road track and guard rails were another challenge that the owner needed to consider during the design process. Loads need to be taken into account when dealing with retaining walls of this nature. The owner was able to save time and money using the cornerstone 100 retaining wall system for the North Carolina fun depot.


David Day engineer, developer and now owner of Fun Depot took a piece of land regarded as useless and with the right product, retaining wall system and design, turned it into a profitable business.
