Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are walls made of pre-formed concrete blocks. When most people think of these kind of retaining walls, they envision the basic wall blocks you can get at home improvement stores. But in reality, that's just one type of wall block of the hundreds that are available these days. There are a wide variety of wall blocks to chose from.

If you have a paver patio or other concrete structures in your landscape or just want to have a more contemporary, formal look then this kind of wall can complement the rest of your landscape or home. A properly built segmental wall should never fail. So if it's important that the wall never fail because of what it's retaining, then this variety of wall would be the way to go.

The first thing you should consider when constructing a segmental retaining wall is construction procedures and base preparation. A wall built quickly and cheaply is probably not a wall that will last. A retaining wall is a functional feature of your landscape that, when constructed well, can be a thing of beauty. However, a poorly built wall will quickly become an eye sore, even if the best materials have been used.

The most expensive retaining wall is the one you have to pay for twice!
