Displaying the outdoors can be a challenge for many homeowners.  A simple solution is the installation of a retaining wall.  A colorful garden highlighted by natural stone creates a visually appealing landscape design.  Our design experts can assist you in bringing the outdoors to a scene of beauty. A wide variety of brick and stone exist from which to choose to ensure your outdoor vision is a success.

Retaining walls are also an attractive and functional way to level out a sloped yard, prevent soil erosion, disguise a building’s foundation, add decorative planters or built-in seating to your property.  Retaining walls can serve to mark the entrance to your property as a gateway or lining the driveway or walkway to your home.  Outdoor lighting can be built into most retaining walls for enjoying your hardscape at night.  An effective retaining wall design takes into account drainage, necessary strength, as well as the overall harmony of your landscape.
