RETAINING WALLS

Turn your sloped yard into a usable space or create a more stable and beautiful hillside.

What is a retaining wall? Retaining walls are structures that hold back or retain soil behind them - often to stop erosion on hillsides or create flat usable space. There are many types of materials that can be used to create retaining walls such as blocks or stone boulders for a more natural look. 

Should you hire a professional? There are many things to consider when constructing a retaining wall such as water runoff, should you create a series of smaller retaining walls to avoid one tall wall, what are the best materials for the soil type and slope and many more. Considerable knowledge and experience are needed before undertaking such a project. We have over 15 years’ experience and have built many residential and commercial retaining walls in the Puget Sound. 

What else should you consider? Once you have a level outdoor space, or a more stable and visually appealing hillside, you can enhance your landscape with a stone patio, steps, flowerbeds or even a waterfall to create the perfect outdoor living space. We build more than just retaining walls and can help you plan and build the perfect space.
