Retaining Walls

Retaining Wall Services


As any experienced landscape contractor would surely tell you, retaining walls are not only built for design purposes, but they have very important roles in the landscape.

For one, retaining walls prevent soil erosion. This is particularly true if some parts of your property are built over loose, uneven soil or slopes. An example would be a gazebo built on a gentle slope. Without a retaining wall constructed around it, the gazebo could be structurally compromised in the event of heavy rains or earthquake. These walls ensure that such amenities are protected.

Another benefit of retaining walls is that they greatly enhance the beauty of your property. An example would be a paved walkway leading to a pool or a cabana with nicely-done walls. Such add-ons easily capture the attention of guests and greatly improve the aesthetic appeal of any property.

Moreover, it can turn idle parts of any property into usable areas. Accordingly, you can allocate certain portions of your property for patios, plant boxes, gazebos, or outdoor kitchen.
