Types of Retaining Wall Installation

We are an extremely proficient hardscaping company, so we know the pros and cons to each material. We also know the best brands to work with. Here are some of the most popular materials for a retaining wall:

  1. If you’re looking for a variety of colors, stone veneer might work for you. There are multiple shapes to choose from as well, and you can get almost any size or thickness. Stone veneer can be a little more expensive than other materials, but it lasts and you can really let your imagination go.
  2. One material you’ll see often is brick. Bricks can fit with almost any home aesthetic or bring out features. We can install them faster, so you’ll save on labor, and hold up well to bad weather. Over time, bricks can get damaged, but just let us know and we’ll be happy to replace whatever you need!
  3. Concrete comes in all shapes and sizes, so it can meet a lot of needs. As you might imagine, it’s built to last and doesn’t need much upkeep. While most concrete walls don’t go above 4 feet and need help with drainage, you can make anything from cultural architecture to a specific time period.
  4. When you want a natural look for your property, it’s hard not to mention wood. You can choose between planks and timber, with the latter being thicker. It’s a lightweight material and we love working with it. The main drawback is the risk of termites and rot, but it creates a unique look for your yard.
  5. You might not think of boulders when you think of retaining walls, but they’ve used for hundreds of years. We’ll stack boulders to make your retaining wall as tall as you want, but they’re set in their shape. Still, they give your yard a rustic style and almost never need replacing.
  6. We use poured concrete for some retaining walls, because of the smooth, sophisticated look. Concrete lasts, but our installation has drainage in mind and you can make all kinds of designs. If your concrete freezes and thaws, it can crack over a long time. 
  7. The last material we’ll mention is gabion. Some people haven’t even heard of this, but gabion used natural resources like rocks and recycling to fill a cage of wire or steel rods. These retaining walls last a long time and can be used for almost any design. They’re not the most aesthetic options, though, and gabion tends to rust with time. 
 

With the material chosen for your retaining wall installation, you’ll need to figure out which type of wall you want. Some walls are better for different needs, so here are the main types that our customers want:

  1. As the name suggests, gravity retaining walls stay in place using gravity. Because that relies on their weight, we can use several different materials to make this happen. Common choices are concrete, brick, and stone veneer, but our team can help you decide. If you opt for a taller wall, we might need to dig a short trench for your wall to be slotted in.
  2. If your property is smaller or you don’t need a huge retaining wall, you might want a sheet piling wall. We’ll install a sheet of either wood, steel, or vinyl into your soil. It won’t work if your soil is too hard, though, because of the structural integrity. If your retaining wall is taller, we might combine your sheet with an anchored wall.
  3. Cantilevered retaining walls have an underground slab that they sit on that makes them stronger. You won’t have to worry about your wall shifting or leaning due to the design. If you want your wall even stronger, we can add vertical reinforcement.
  4. Anchored walls can act alone or with other types for support. We’ll either attach your wall to anchors in the ground or use cables to hold them up. This extra reinforcement can make any retaining wall stronger, so we might recommend this for areas with heavy rainfall or drainage
