Landscape Remodeling Project in San Diego


This project required the removal of 976 linear feet of  California round panels. That is approximately 122 panels.  Remove all 8-foot poles.

Set all new post then weld new panels 2” off the ground to prevent corrosion.

The Challenge

The old post were set in 3 feet of concrete and all intertwined with all the landscaping lines.

The biggest challenge was this was a pool area and would have to remove and place all the poles in one day.

The entire project took 6 employees about 3 weeks to complete.

Our Solution

  • Repair PVC piping to prevent underground leaks that would corrode new post.
  • The use of a special rust inhibitor on all post and panels.
  • Paint the panels with oil based paint for maximum durability.
  • We staged and did all the project in 10 stages to keep children safe and no one sneaking in the pool at night.
