Retaining Walls

Professionally installed retaining walls add usable, level ground to landscapes and help prevent erosion control. They also act as a perfect landscape borders and will give your property a more refined look.

A retaining wall is a specially designed structure that holds soil on one side and is free standing on the other. They help to accommodate changes in grade in a landscape with uneven topography. These walls often allow steeper cuts to a slope to yield more usable space on a cut-and-fill hillside lot. Hard working retaining walls can be key to creating a level sports lawn or driveway too. Retaining walls are also used on level ground to raise living spaces above the surrounding ground plain. A well designed retaining wall can elevate planting areas for improved drainage while at the same time creating a seat wall.

There is no end to the benefits of these heavy barriers, but they can be costly and must be strictly constructed to prevent failure. There are many materials that can be used for retaining walls.
