Retaining walls play a crucial role in stabilizing soil and preventing erosion, offering both functional and aesthetic benefits. From various materials to innovative styles and hybrid systems, our expert landscaping team is equipped to handle all your retaining wall needs.

Retaining Wall Basics

Retaining walls are rigid structures designed to support soil at different levels on two sides, effectively resisting lateral pressures of loose soils. They not only add visual interest but also serve essential functional purposes, particularly in hillsides and sloped landscapes.

Material Options

We offer a diverse range of materials for retaining walls to suit your specific needs and preferences:

  • Concrete: Easy to install and highly sturdy, ideal for areas prone to ground movement.
  • Natural Stone/Boulders: Provides a natural feel but requires more time and effort for installation.
  • Timber: Offers a rustic appeal and cost efficiency, commonly used in residential yards.

Styles and Designs

Our team specializes in various retaining wall styles to accommodate different elevation levels:

  • Gravity Retaining Walls: Utilizes the weight of the wall to counteract soil pressure, often constructed with concrete, stone, or brick.
  • Crib Retaining Walls: Consists of interlocking individual boxes filled with materials like stone or granite.
  • Gabion Walls: Rectangular mesh boxes filled with rocks, used for erosion control and construction purposes.

Hybrid Systems

For enhanced stability and durability, we offer hybrid retaining wall systems that combine mass and reinforcement techniques:

  • Anchored Earth Walls: Rods or strips are tied directly into the ground to anchor the wall.
  • Gabions/Cages: Boxes filled with earth or sand, serving as a hybrid retaining wall.
  • Sheet Pile Walls: Steel sheets driven into the excavation, suitable for moderate pressure resistance.
