Excavating Sloped Terrain for Driveway to Garage


Recommended Posts

The terrain for this house slopes gradually up from the street to the garage. The garage floor and garage door sit 2' below grade. I need to excavate a gentler slope for the driveway up to the garage, and perhaps add retaining walls along the sides of the driveway. The driveway needs to seamlessly but up against the floor of the garage and bottom of garage door. I have tried adding retaining walls, but they don't work right (see photos).  Adding a driveway over the sloped terrain looks horrible and doesn't meet the garage floor and bottom of garage door at the 2' below grade level. How can I achieve this?  Thanks!
