Sink Holes

Sink Holes | Landscaping Design | Atlanta | GAIn the metro Atlanta area, homeowners are no stranger to the dreaded sink holes. While you may think you have a solid home foundation, your Atlanta home could be susceptible to these nuisances. However, the best way to fight the problem is to educate yourself on the subject so if a sink hole does find its way onto your property, you can communicate with your Atlanta contracting company efficiently start sink hole repair.

First, there are three different types of sink holes: a development hole, a lot clearing hole, and a clean up hole. A development hole takes place during the beginning stage of construction when debris is buried in a hole rather than disposed of properly. A lot clearing hole is one of the more common of sink holes and was usually created towards the end of construction of the original foundation. Finally, the clean up hole came to be when the original construction company finished their project and decided to bury the remaining debris.

Sink Holes | Landscaping Design | Atlanta | GAWhile many Atlanta design companies are familiar with these breeds, all sink holes are different and should be approached with caution by the homeowner and the landscape design company in question. Most of the sinkholes Outdoor makeover has encountered in the past have ranged from 10 to 15 feet deep and most are lot clearing sink holes. It’s also best that homeowners not handle the problem themselves due to the fact that if not handled properly, sink holes can get bigger and more expensive to properly fix.

At Outdoor Makeover and Construction, there are a few approaches we take to fix this issue and they are all driven by the clients’ budget. To properly fix a sink hole, we excave it thoroughly to make sure we are able to take out all of the cluttered debris. Then we separate the bad soil from the good soil and place it back in the hole but not before our landscape designers make sure that everything is completely cleared out.

Sink Holes | Landscaping Design | Atlanta | GAIT IS VITAL THAT PROPER COMPACTING MATERIALS ARE USED WHEN BACKFILLING A SINK HOLE. If the proper compacting materials are not used when refilling a sink hole, it can be hazardous to the surrounding area. Our construction and landscape artists also recommend refraining from building any structures on top of a sink hole due to the fact that it will settle.

It’s understandable why some homeowners could mistake a sink hole for another foundation issue but even then it is vital for professionals to inspect the area so the problem doesn’t persist or get worse. If a sink hole is not properly taken care of, it can do severe damage to the home and anything surrounding it. At Outdoor Makeover and Construction, our Atlanta landscape designers are perfectly trained to handle your sink hole issue while maintaining the quality of your Atlanta landscape.

  • “Last June, my wife and I contacted Outdoor Makeover regarding replacing the “weeds” in our front lawn with sod, replacement of all shrubs in the front and back yards and the planting several new trees throughout our property. Once we confirmed the design plan, the Outdoor Makeover crew got started immediately. The job soon took on a life of its own and Navid and his crew were ready and willing to be flexible and get the job done. It is a pleasure to work with a professional that understands the meaning of good communication and customer service. The project came out perfect and we are very happy with our new lawn, shrubs and trees. We look forward to a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship with Outdoor Makeover.”

  • “Navid and the Outdoor Makeover team are top notch. They found solutions within our price range and help us accomplish our most important priorities. Further, even after we paid them in full and needed them to come back to touch up some items, they came back within 1 week. This is UNHEARD of these days! I would highly recommend them to everyone!”

  • “Navid and his team have exceptional vision and incredible talent for design.
    Outdoor Makeover delivered a plan that is much better than the competitors from design to build. I ended up with an exceptional result that I totally love and enjoy daily. I am very proud to show off my special area in my yard and everyone loves hanging outside now; Navid asked questions to figure out my lifestyle. Furthermore, Navid discovered what I needed and wanted, of which I was unaware when we started the process.”

  • “We contacted a number of landscapers before we found Outdoor Makeover. Navid and Omid worked hard on improving our front and backyard. They worked quickly and diligently and now we have a beautiful lawn and outdoor entertainment area. Their customer service was excellent. They called or emailed us a number of times just to make sure everything was right and we were satisfied. Great Job - Great Customer Service - Great People!”

    Patrice & David Alpharetta, GA

  • “While we had a general idea of some things we wanted done, Navid was able to envision a work product beyond that which we could have imagined. In addition to being very accessible, Navid was very customer focused and was intent throughout the project of ensuring that our expectations were met. We were amazed at his team’s ability to execute so quickly from “design” to final product. Expectations were more than exceeded, and we would certainly use Navid and Outdoor Makeover on future projects.”
