Why Install Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are carefully engineered systems that are capable of holding back tons of saturated soil and preventing soil erosion, which can cause foundation damage or damage to surrounding landscapes. A retaining wall can also be used to increase usable yard space by terracing sloped property. They can be designed to increase the aesthetic appeal of a landscape, and low retaining walls can add a natural bench or seating area.
The Cost of Retaining Walls
Retaining wall cost varies depending on the size, material used, and the design. However, don’t let cost be the only deciding factor. Material quality and workmanship are critical and the most important part. The structural integrity of your concrete or stone block retaining wall is crucial to safety, durability and the value of your property. Sub-standard design, materials, and construction could mean unnecessary repair expenses, or even worse, having to redo it entirely.

3. Natural Stone Retaining Walls: These types of walls can be constructed using stone, brick, or cinder block. They can be stacked, non-mortared stones or mortared stones.

4. Concrete Retaining Walls: These types of walls are typically very strong and durable. They can be used effectively for small or large projects. While bare concrete is not particularly appealing, concrete retaining walls can be covered with a stone veneer or special forms can be used to improve their look.
