We install custom outside barriers made of long-lasting materials

Retaining walls provide much more than a simple add-on to a residential or commercial landscape. In many cases they are necessary to contain erosion and level out sloped terrain. We love walls for the beauty they bring, but we also love them because they help with drainage and moisture when it rains or during weather changes.

Wall installation often makes outdoor spaces safer and are helpful in avoiding expensive damage to landscape features. In many cases, barriers are constructed to create new living areas, including patios, decks, and steps. Many people like to have retention walls walls around pools, trees, driveways, under fences, on steeply graded front and backyards, and between their neighbors.

Depending on where the wall’s purpose and where it is to be constructed, one material might work better than another for your property. We make use of gravity, cantilever, gabion, and anchored wall methods to provide stability that will last for decades.

We expertly assemble barriers made from concrete blocks, poured concrete, wood, bricks, and natural stone. (as explained below). It’s up to you. We’re ready to help.

Concrete block

Concrete blocks are a popular choice for retaining walls. A big appeal is the wide variety of available block shapes, textures, colors, and sizes. This range of options makes it fairly simple to fashion a free-standing wall that blends well with most home and lawn designs. We can help you select colors and styles that match with your outdoor space.

Concrete block walls nowadays are sophisticated systems built for durability and strength. Blocks are stacked on top of each other and secured with interlocking edges, clips, and pins that create a structure solid enough to control drainage and water runoff. 

 

Most block walls are installed on a compacted gravel base. This helps the barrier to slightly bend with ground movement and remain sturdy. Most can be curved, sculpted and custom built.

Natural stone

While blocks may be the most popular material for retaining walls, most agree that stones make for the most attractive outdoor hardscape design. With natural stone, you have quite a few options that will work nicely with your home and lawn. 

Designing and building stone and boulders walls can be challenge and often require the skill and expertise of a professional contractor. If you want a stone wall higher than three feet, the work of a pro builder is needed to ensure longevity and wall strength. 

We can help you install customized walls made of rubble, limestone, textured stone, cut stone and boulders. Our designs are flexible and can be curved to meet your needs, style, and budget.

Brick and masonry

Walls made of brick and mortar have been constructed and used for hundreds of years for retention and landscape purposes. Using brickwork for your property produces a beautiful aesthetic that is traditional in nature. While the materials are not all natural, brick naturally blends with its surroundings in time. 

Brick retaining do well in complementing both modern and traditional architectural designs. Bricks are sturdy, durable, and tend to last for years with little to no maintenance.

Poured concrete

A poured concrete barrier is a staple for new age homes and landscapes. Solid walls deliver clean designs and line. Thanks to their stability, they can be built taller than other wall materials and are ideal for terrains with steeper slopes. 

Poured concrete has dynamic flexibility and can be molded into any shape or style you wish. Different colors can also be applied to the material to produce an artistic design that is unique to your style.

Wood, timber and planks

Wooden walls aren’t as popular as they were 15-20 years ago, but they still pair well with yards and homes that feature rustic elements (think stained wood and stone and wood, as well as plant life). Wood graining and texture are warm and visually familiar, making it an outstanding choice when wall aesthetics are essential to your style.

Timber, planks, and railroad tie materials are suitable choices for smaller budgets. They are usually built upon gravel beds and connected with long nails and spikes.

Our crew of highly skilled professionals custom design and construct retaining wall that fit your needs and budget.

This is one of the best companies we have ever worked with for home service projects. When it comes to retaining walls for landscape, we wouldn't think of doing business with any other service in our area. We are very happy with the block concrete wall they built in our backyard. It is a great touch for our patio and garden areas. We love it, and we are thankful for their dedicated team of workers."

Our 4-step building process

Sure, you can gather some friends and family, drive over to Lowe’s or Home Depot, buy the required materials, and attempt to construct a retaining on your own. If you are handy, you might even build a beautiful and sturdy wall. If you are not sure what you are doing, you are just as likely to end up with a disaster of a wall that fails at what you need it to do.

Sit back, relax, and let our crew assist you. Retaining wall design and assembly is most effective when completed by professionals who work through the steps below correctly. With our help, your wall will need only minimal maintenance and repairs in the future.

1. Build a base: Stone, wood, blocks and concrete must be secured at a proper depth below ground surface as determined by the height of the wall. A solid base is required for the wall to last long and perform as intended.

2. Backfill compaction: For a retaining wall to work the way you want it, it must have sturdy soil behind it. We call this soil backfill. Our pros determine the correct amount of fill for appropriate drainage and to maintain the integrity of the barrier.

3. Drainage design: Moisture cannot move through a retaining wall naturally. Thus, drainage channels must be implemented into the design. These channels (usually installed pipes or drilling small holes) prevent damage, including cracks and bulges.

4. Wall height: How much weight a wall can withstand has direct correlation with its height. Most retention structures are 3-4 feet tall and need no reinforcements. If you want to go higher, we can design and construct walls using cantilevered and other engineering methods.
