Because of the topography of a property, a retaining wall may be needed to create a level surface and prevent erosion on a sloped area and making it suitable to build other landscape features such as a pool, outdoor room, or kitchen. However, if they are not properly built retaining walls can easily succumb to the pressures of weather and other natural elements. Our designers have the experience and expertise to build retaining walls that can withstand the test of time and weather.

Besides at times being a necessary addition to your landscape, retaining and freestanding walls add character to your property. These walls can be built using natural stone, concrete, wood, or a number of other materials. Retaining wall materials can be textured and aged to resemble castle-like structures and Old English cottages, or they can be smooth and symmetrical giving a more modern, urban feel to a landscape. A freestanding wall near a garden or along a path can add a whimsical atmosphere to your backyard.
Retaining walls add a decorative charm to the landscape and can simply be used to divide certain areas of a property, creating dimension and definition for a landscape. But they should also coordinate visually with the rest of your landscape and the architecture of your home.
These walls should also be designed to work seamlessly with your landscape’s drainage and irrigation system so that the wall can adequately protect your home. As one united team, our designers and drainage specialists design every retaining wall to have the proper drainage elements.
