Your Local Retaining Wall Company
Living in Norcross, GA means enjoying the beautiful outdoors, from lush greenery to rolling hills. However, those lovely slopes and elevation changes can present challenges when it comes to landscaping or adding functional spaces to your outdoor living area. That’s where Georgia Outdoor Services can help.
We are experts in designing and building retaining walls (also known as abutments, breast walls, bulkheads, bulwarks, embankments, and piling) that not only hold back and support soil but also enhance the aesthetics of your yard. With over 15 years of experience serving Norcross and the surrounding areas, we have the skills to construct walls that are stunning, sturdy, and customized for your property’s unique landscape.
The Benefits of a Well-Designed Retaining Wall
A properly built retaining wall provides numerous advantages:
Prevents erosion and washouts
Retaining walls reinforce slopes and prevent the earth from sliding or washing away during heavy rains. This protects your landscaping investment and prevents cascading damage.
Allows for usable flat spaces
Retaining walls can level out slopes and create flat yards, gardens, or patio spaces where they wouldn’t otherwise exist in hilly terrain. This expands your usable outdoor living area.
Stone, brick, or interlocking concrete retaining walls can become beautiful landscape features in their own right, complementing your home’s architecture and yard design.
Increases property value
Quality retaining walls add real monetary value to your home by enhancing usable space and curb appeal.
When properly designed and constructed, retaining walls can last for decades with minimal maintenance required. This provides an excellent return on investment.
Retaining walls have numerous applications, from short landscaping walls to tall reinforced structures behind or alongside buildings. We can build the optimal retaining wall design for your specific needs.
Professional Installation Services
While some property owners tackle smaller landscape retaining walls as DIY projects, we strongly recommend hiring Georgia Outdoor Services for installation. Our experienced pros get the job done quickly with an attention to detail that ensures your wall will be structurally sound for decades.
Retaining wall installation expertise includes:
- Excavation – We bring in equipment to dig footings and trenches to the proper depth and width.
- Base preparation – A critical first step, we level and compact soil, gravel, and sand bases to create a stable foundation.
- Block fitting – Interlocking blocks take skill to properly stack, align, and connect. We ensure every block is level and fitted tightly.
- Soil backfilling – Soil needs to be carefully compacted behind the wall to avoid future settling and wall damage.
- Finishing touches – We neatly finish off wall edges and caps to complete the polished look.
- Drainage – Drain pipes, gravel, and other drainage elements are integrated per the engineered plans.
Let us handle the heavy work involved so you can relax and simply admire your newly built, beautiful retaining wall.
Retaining Walls That Complement Your Home and Landscape
Well-designed retaining walls don’t just hold soil in place. They can transform your entire outdoor living space and enhance your home’s curb appeal. We pay close attention to aesthetics, including:
Using Materials that Complement Your Home
If your house has a rustic wood or brick exterior, we’ll match that look with your retaining wall material. For a cool modern home, sleek concrete blocks make an ideal pairing. Our goal is cohesion. The retaining wall should look like an integrated landscape feature, not an out-of-place eyesore.
Following the Natural Lines and Flow of the Landscape
Retaining walls should blend with the natural contours, not disrupt them. We design walls that gracefully follow the existing flow of your yard rather than imposing rigid unnatural lines. The result is a beautiful harmony between structure and landscape.
Allowing the Retaining Wall to Shine
At the same time, a well-designed retaining wall deserves to be a focal feature. We use textures, patterns, scaling, lighting and plantings to showcase your new retaining wall so it becomes a true standout element of your outdoor environment.
