Retaining Walls

A retaining wall is both functional and a beautiful addition to the home.

Designed to stabilize soil and rock as well as to stop soil erosion, Installing a retaining wall can serve four purposes:

  • slope management
  • adding a new level for your landscape
  • drainage control
  • creating extra space

It is functional in the way it holds back earth. Retaining walls stabilize soil and rock from down slope movement or erosion and provide support for vertical or steep grade changes. Most of the home retaining walls are gravity walls that are basically a large mass of either natural garden stone, boulders, railroad ties or landscape blocks. The once popular inexpensive railroad tie wall has fallen out of favor due to environmental concerns. They also decompose with time. People that like the look of wood now go with 6×6 treated ties.
