Retaining Wall Installation & More
Would you like more useable space in your yard? That’s one of the best reasons to have us install a retaining wall, but it’s far from the only reason. Also known as revetments, breast walls, bulkheads, embankments, abutments, bulwarks, and pilings, these walls prevent soil erosion in your yard. Heavy rains, wind, and irrigation issues can literally wash your yard away especially if you have a slope or steep hill in your yard.
Installing various types of walls helps create proper drainage and water runoff as well as prevents sinkholes which can protect and maintain your property. Did you know that retaining walls can also add structural support to your home? It’s true. If your lot sits on an incline, a wall can protect the integrity of your foundation and provide the structural support necessary to keep your home safe from unstable soil.
Most people simply want our retaining wall company to provide more space for planting and entertainment, but as you can see, there are many different reasons to call us.

Types Of Retaining Walls
At Georgia Outdoor Services, we have the ability to build many different types of retaining walls, each with its own advantages and disadvantages. The best type of wall structure for your property will depend on a number of factors, including the height of the wall, the type of soil, the budget, and the look you want.
Segmental Block Retaining Walls
Segmental block walls are one of the most popular types of walls. They are made up of interlocking concrete blocks that can be stacked to create walls of various heights and styles. Segmental block walls are relatively easy to install and can be customized to fit the specific needs of your property.
Poured Concrete Retaining Walls
These walls are made by pouring concrete into a mold that is built to the desired dimensions of the wall. Poured concrete walls are very strong and durable. They will definitely last a long time and need very little care.
Natural Or Crushed Stone Walls
Natural stone walls are a great option for homeowners who want a natural and rustic look. They can be made from a variety of stones, such as granite, limestone, and sandstone. Natural stone walls are very durable and can last for many years, but they can be more expensive to install than other types of walls.
Railroad Tie Retaining Walls
Railroad retaining walls are a type of wall that is made from used railroad ties. Railroad ties are made from durable hardwoods, such as oak and creosote, which makes them well-suited for walls. Railroad ties are also relatively inexpensive, simple to work with, and easy to obtain.
Gabion retaining walls
These walls are made from wire mesh baskets that are filled with stones. Gabion walls are very strong and durable, and they can be used to create a variety of different looks.
Crib Style retaining walls
These walls are made from a series of interlocking logs or timbers. Crib walls are a good option for homeowners who want a natural and rustic look. However, they are not as strong as some other types of walls, and they may require more maintenance over time.
Anchored retaining walls
These walls are used in situations where a retaining wall needs to be very strong, such as in areas with a high risk of landslides. Anchored retaining walls are typically made of concrete or steel, and they are anchored into the ground using cables or other supports.
Choosing the Right Retaining Wall
When choosing the best type of wall, it is important to consider the following factors:
Height of the wall
The height of the wall will determine the type of wall that can be used. For example, segmental block walls are not suitable for walls that are more than 4 feet tall.
Type of soil
The type of soil on your property will also affect the type of retaining wall that you can choose. For example, if you have sandy soil, you will need to choose a retaining wall that is designed to withstand erosion.
The cost of retaining walls can vary depending on the type of wall, the materials used, and the size of the wall. It is important to set a budget before you begin planning your retaining wall project.
The aesthetic of the wall is also an important factor to consider. You will want to choose a type of wall that complements the style of your home and landscape.
If you are unsure which type of wall is right for your property, it is best to consult with a professional retaining wall contractor. They can assess your specific needs and recommend what’s best for your property.
