There are many choices when you are exploring design ideas to build a retaining wall. Retaining walls can be built with rocks, boulders, pavers, concrete blocks, poured concrete, or treated timbers. Contact our design professionals to discover your options to create a beautiful and solid structure.
Landworks can assist you in designing and installing a solid retaining wall with character and harmony with your home. In general, retaining walls are used when one area of ground is at a different height than an adjacent area of ground, and the slope between them is too steep to be stable on its own. A retaining wall is used to hold the slope in place, support the higher level of ground, and in many cases can be created to display a landscaping bed full of colorful trees, shrubs and flowers.
