Retaining Wall Process

Step 1: Consult

The consultation sets the tone for the remainder of the project. Prospective clients can schedule a free on-site consultation with us. We will identify the full scope of your project, your must-haves, the current state of your outdoor space, your desired aesthetic and goals, and the budget. During this time, we will collect all the relevant details that will form the vision and the plan for your project. These details include measurements, notes, and pictures.

Step 2: Design

To draft mock plans for your tentative design, we utilize in-house 3D modeling technology. Variables such as existing structures and trees, your budget, your must-haves, and proper measurements are taken into account. This allows us to both see the vision in real-time as well as adjust and tweak the design as needed.

When the materials and colors for the project have been determined, you will receive an unofficial estimate.

Step 3: Build

Following the final estimate and design approval, we move on to the most critical step: obtaining the proper permits and adhering to local municipality codes. The construction project can be significantly delayed if the correct permits are not obtained.

Finally, we move on to the construction phase. To ensure that design, budget, and construction timelines are met, our project manager and designer will work closely with you. This phase will be followed by a thorough cleanup, to ensure your yard is left in great condition.

A Glimpse of Our Work

What Is A Retaining Wall?

Retaining Walls Explained

Retaining walls are structures used to hold or contain soil or rocks. Typically, retaining walls are used to create flat space by stabilizing sloped areas. Various materials can be used to construct retaining walls, including wood, stone, concrete, and steel. Concrete blocks and natural stones are the most popular options when it comes to beautifying your design.

For landscapes that need reshaping, retaining walls are the simplest and most cost-effective solution. Retaining walls are an environmentally friendly alternative to digging a pit beneath the base soil lines to even out the surface.

Gravity walls, piling walls, cantilevers, and anchored walls are the four different types of retaining walls. Typically, gravity or cantilever retaining walls are used. Below is a description of each.

Types of Retaianing Walls

Gravity Retaining Walls

The strength and stability of gravity retaining walls are determined by their own weight as well as the base upon which they are built. Concrete blocks, masonry bricks, or poured concrete can be used to build them. Construction adhesive or cement can be used to glue the stones or bricks together.

Cantilever Retaining Walls

Reinforced concrete or mortared masonry is commonly used to construct cantilever retaining walls. In order to improve their strength, these walls typically consist of a shorter, vertical stem, providing resistance to prevent sliding and overturning of soil.
