Retaining walls provide a stylish way to restrain soil and add function to otherwise impractical landscapes with undesirable slopes. They are often used to terrace hills to create level areas for flowerbeds, gardens and outdoor living spaces.
With a variety of materials used to build retaining walls, such as concrete blocks, stones and boulders, it’s easy to beautifully incorporate them in any landscape design.
Retaining walls are carefully engineered to defy gravity and hold up soil in areas that would naturally slope downhill. It takes experience and precision to build a retaining wall that can challenge nature, year after year.
Poorly designed retaining walls will result in retaining wall failure and can create major water problems leading to possible wet basements. The team at Groundworks has the experience and craftsmanship to build and attractive wall that will stay stable for many years.
