Retaining Walls

Retaining walls provide an attractive solution for unstable and sloped terrains. They create a more useful area for everything from patios, paths, kids play sets and driveways, or any situation that requires a flat surface.  A properly designed retaining wall provides long term stability, beauty and value to steep slopes.

Looking for a more “natural” retaining wall solution?   Boulder retaining walls are beautiful, economically priced, and when they are properly constructed they can last a lifetime. Boulder retaining walls are often used in natural settings with good to poor soils. A fabric is usually installed between the boulders and the soil to limit erosion through the spaces between the boulders. Boulder retaining walls are considered gravity walls, because they use the mass of the rocks to stabilize the soil. Their appearance varies greatly depending upon the type of rock used and the style used to place them..
