RETAINING WALLS HOLD BACK SOIL AND MITIGATE SLOPING TERRAINS.
Retaining walls prevent soil from moving or eroding. If your landscape changes drastically in elevation, a retaining wall is often necessary for stability and to support leveled spaces behind it.
Many factors are considered in the installation of retaining walls. We take into account aesthetics and cost, but also plan for our region’s rainfall and precipitation. Landscape block is a popular choice, and our walls are constructed with best practices in mind. 18-24” of drain rock is installed behind the wall along with a 4” perforated drain pipe. Landscape fabric is used to control erosion.
For slight slopes or for a more natural look, large rocks are carefully placed to hold back soil and to organize space on sloped areas. Plants that spill over retaining walls help to soften edges and transition to bed areas or lawn.
