Retaining walls create a level surface in a sloped area. The use of retaining walls has been around for thousands of years. Today, retaining walls continue to serve an important purpose; however, they can also enhance and provide an attractive element to your landscape. Poured concrete retaining walls can be decorative and even reproduce the look of masonry or stone and are also available in a variety of colors and other finishes. As with any of our retaining walls, proper building techniques, including installation for sufficient drainage to reduce the risk of damage from hydraulic pressure, are imperative to ensure the effect and longevity of a retaining wall.
Retaining walls are a useful way to prevent soil erosion around your home, or act as a support for your driveway or pool. They can be made of concrete or decorative stone, and come in a variety of styles and finishes to suit your taste.
