Benefits of a Retaining Wall
There are many great reasons to install a retaining wall on your property. Here are some of the top benefits:
Prevent erosion and stabilize slopes
Retaining walls reinforce steep banks and prevent soil erosion. This protects your landscape investment.
Create usable flat yards
Retaining walls can be used to terrace a yard that has a steep slope, allowing you to gain useful flat space for flower beds, other plants, or entertaining.
Retaining walls can be designed to complement your home’s architecture and landscaping materials. They provide beautiful buffers and borders.
Increase property value
Well-built retaining walls add value by improving aesthetics, providing more usable space, and keeping soil erosion at bay.
Allow creative designs
Retaining walls can curve, step, and stack, allowing for creative shapes, tiered gardens, and planters.
Retaining Wall Design
Our team of experienced landscape designers will work with you to create a retaining wall design that fits your yard, matches your architecture, and works with your landscape materials. Here are some of the design factors we consider:
- Overall height required
- Ideal materials based on aesthetics and budget
- Terracing options if working along a tall slope
- Incorporating steps, lighting, drainage, and railings if needed
- Curves, corners, planter boxes, and other shapes
- Transitions from retaining walls to existing yard grade
- Evaluating the need for reinforcement
- Choosing colors and textures that complement your home
Retaining Wall Installation
Proper structural design and engineering principles are vital for building a retaining wall that will stand the test of time. Our retaining walls are carefully installed by experts:
- Excavation of footing and base preparation
- Compaction of the base in lifts for stability
- Leveling and alignment of units
- Proper use of geogrid tiers if required for tall walls
- Correct drainage and backfill with gravel behind the wall
- Sloping grade away from the wall for surface drainage
- Adding finishing touches like caps, lighting, and plants
Maintaining Your Walls
While our walls are built to last for decades, periodic maintenance is important. We provide homeowners with tips for ongoing wall care:
- Inspect for leaning, bulging, cracks, or soil loss after major storms
- Re-align any shifted units immediately to prevent cascading failure
- Keep drainage ditches and pipes clear of debris
- Prevent erosion behind the wall with proper grading and groundcover plants
- Don’t install structures, trees, or bushes on top of your wall
- Clean stains and remove weeds/vegetation promptly
- Seal cracks in concrete or mortar promptly to prevent moisture damage
