Custom Design and Material Options

We offer several material options including natural stone, concrete masonry units, concrete, brick, wood timbers, gabion baskets filled with stone, and more. Our team of experts will evaluate your property and recommend the best materials and design.

Some of the retaining wall styles we specialize in include:

  • Stacked stone walls
    These classic retaining walls use local natural stones. We leverage skilled masons and specialized equipment to hand-build walls that are attractive and incredibly durable. The organic, irregular shapes and multi-colored patterns of natural stones result in beautiful finished projects that seamlessly integrate into your landscape.
  • Concrete block retaining walls
    For those seeking a cost-effective solution, concrete masonry unit (CMU) retaining walls provide excellent functionality and longevity. Concrete blocks can be shaped and colored in myriad ways to produce stunning patterns. They are a great choice for long straight retaining walls.
  • Timber retaining walls
    For a rustic, natural wood look, our timber retaining walls use large, heavy-duty landscaping timbers stacked and secured with galvanized steel rods. The woods can be stained or treated for longevity. Timber is perfect for tiered garden retaining walls.
  • Gabion retaining walls
    This style uses stacked, cube-shaped wire baskets filled with stone. The variable patterns and textures of the stone-filled gabions create an organic, naturalistic look. Gabions make excellent retaining walls on steep slopes or where drainage and flexibility are key factors.
  • Reinforced concrete retaining walls
    For the ultimate in brute strength and seamless long spans of wall, reinforced concrete is unsurpassed. Concrete can be cast and colored in limitless ways to create stunning geometric patterns or mimic natural stone. It’s an ideal choice for high walls and commercial applications.

No matter which material you choose, our walls are engineered for maximum stability, drainage, and aesthetic appeal.
