STONE RETAINING WALLS FOR GRADE RETENTION
Stone retaining walls are a versatile feature of any landscape design and can be used to create different outdoor living spaces or highlight focal points in your backyard or front yard. Retaining walls made of natural stone can also help protect your property by supporting your overall landscape and preventing erosion.
Create a different look to your yard with an Outcropping Retaining Wall. An Outcropping Retaining Wall is a nice aesthetic and functional solution to small and large changes in grade. An Outcropping Retaining Wall can also provide an opportunity to create pockets for perennials and annuals to be intertwined into the wall. This type of retaining wall provides visual interest to the eye while also creating a very functional wall.
Consider using a mixture of natural stones to create a unique design with contrasting colors and textures that will stand out in your outdoor space.
Below are some examples of various types of Retaining Walls we have installed for our clients.
