Retaining Walls

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, “Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..”, comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

Retaining Wall Features

There are reasons to add a retaining or decorative wall to your landscape:

  • Prevent soil erosion on slopes, keeping your landscape intact.
  • Visual interest and dimension to your landscape
  • Creates usable space on sloped areas, such as terraced gardens or seating areas.
  • Provides structural support for vertical changes in elevation
  • Available in a variety of materials, including natural stone and concrete block
  • Designed in various heights, shapes, and textures to complement your landscape design.
  • Built to last, retaining walls offer durable support and structural integrity for years to come.

Types of Walls

Generally concrete block, for its strength and durability.  The sky is the limit in types, textures, and colors.

Concrete block and natural stone are great options for these types of walls.

Granite steps and landings, flat natural stone, and cultured stone steppers all integrate into the landscape and will last for years to come

From granite boulders to Pennsylvania flat and everything in between, natural stone walls are a great addition to any landscape!

Ideal for dressing up existing concrete surfaces (steps, foundations, etc). Stone veneer can be installed inside and outside for long lasting durability and a great look!
