Retaining Walls

Retaining Walls

Do you have an uneven area in your property or landscape? If your answer is yes, then consider constructing a retaining wall to transform that area into something functional. Landscape retaining walls are a great way to make your outdoor spaces usable by providing an area for pool, patio, or plants. And since it reduces slope, it also turns the area for easier mowing. This becomes ideal for you if you love plants as this can also create terraced gardens or function as plant boxes.

There are different pavers and stones that can be used in the construction of retaining walls. Some of them are listed below:

  • Bricks: This is an expensive wall material as this is mortared at the joints. When using brick for retaining walls, concrete has to be built first as brick will be mortared to the wall after. It is a natural material formed from clay and it complements bluestone very well.
  • Mortared Stone: This is a material that creates a very nice-looking retaining wall in the landscape. However, this is also an expensive retaining wall material since this is made of natural stone. The stones are available in different sizes. They can be naturally formed or can be made thinner, which is called face stone.
  • Dry Laid Stone: This element is composed of natural stone. Fieldstone is the most popular choice when using this type of material for retaining walls. There are three selections to choose from and the choice usually depends on the height of the retaining walls.
