Oceanside CA – Soil Nailing the Head Scarp
This shot was before we resume slope reconstruction. No #trimble for us…. Just Alfredo doing his thing using dead reckoning and 30 years experience to bring up the slope at a perfect 1.5 to 1.
All design and engineering on this one by Stan Helenschmidt…skills!!!
Soil nailing is a construction remedial measure to treat unstable natural soil slopes or as a construction technique that allows the safe over-steepening of new or existing soil slopes.
Groundforce can be seen here providing down hole hammer drilling in Temecula, CA. Serpentine Soil Nail Walls are challenging to build but look good when they are finished and provide quality support. This one is for an estate site that will have a pool at the base of the wall.

Here is some fun footage of a job we just wrapped in in San Diego for an apartment project in the Mission Hills area. Groundforce did all of the Soil Nail Wall Work and Grading. Our guys really did a great job on this one. On to the next job!
This was a landslide repair to a slope that undermined four houses and a swimming pool in Oceanside, CA. The site work included the installation of tie backs (56 anchors with 300 kip loads) and reinforced shotcrete (225 Cubic yards). The project also included slope re-grading (14,000 cubic yards), and the reconstruction of an existing retaining wall.
A turnkey slope stabilization work site behind an estate home in Rancho Santa Fe, CA . The work included the tie back shoring of a wall (36 tie backs with 200 kip loads) to provide support to the house and swimming pool above the slope. A storm and site drainage system was implemented and 12,000 cubic yards of grading and re-vegetation were part of the project on this site.
Slope stabilization and slope repair work at a site in La Jolla Ca involved (10,800 Cubic yards) of grading, and the construction of caissons (48 caissons for slope stability with 36-inch diameters and 56 feet deep). The project included foundation underpinning to provide support for the houses above the slope. In addition were some site drainage repairs.
Groundforce can be seen here putting up the sculpted Shotcrete finish for a 600 foot long, 10,000 square foot Soil Nail Wall project for the folks at KB Home in San Marcos.
This is the first time we have worked with KB Home and we hope to do more in the future.
Groundforce has been busy getting this slope repair done before El Nino comes knocking on the door. The photo on the front shows our crew putting the final trim on the finished slope face. This project in Encinitas involved extensive Geo-grid reinforced slope reconstruction at 3 adjoining properties. In addition the site storm drainage system was upgraded and new landscaping was installed to help prevent future problems. The project Geotechnical Engineer was Terra Pacific Consultants, Civil Engineering was performed by Coffey Engineering and Construction Management Services were provided by Gilliland Construction Management.
Groundforce is an expert in performing repairs to properties with Drainage and Slope issues and can help property owners prepare and defend themselves against the upcoming El Nino.
