Retaining walls allow you to reclaim your previously unusable space and create beautiful, aesthetically pleasing areas. Not only do they provide visual interest to your landscape, they also control erosion and reduce surface runoff by reducing sharper gradients. Retaining walls can be built either free standing or connected with other landscaping structures. Perfecting the process; however, requires experience and expertise. Soil weight and pressure behind the wall need to be taken into account, as well as integrating channels and drainage pipes into the construction to provide proper drainage and water control. Reinforcement with Geogrid is a crucial step in our building process and is used between layers of block to strengthen the bond between the wall and the soil behind it.
There are a variety of materials that can be used to build retaining walls depending on your needs and what complements your individual landscape.
