Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are often found in places where extra support is needed to prevent the earth from moving downhill with erosion. The most basic function of a retaining wall is to battle gravity; the lateral force of the slope must be offset in the retaining wall’s design. Retaining walls can also:

Provide usable land. For millennia, humans have used retaining wall techniques to create terraces of usable land on slopes. A retaining wall can provide a level area in your yard.

Manage water runoff. Retaining walls also help slow the flow of rainwater; in this way, they can increase the utility of your gardening and lawn care.

Our retaining wall design options are Michigan Boulders, Canadian Outcroppings, and other natural stone. These walls have oodles of character and can turn a drab corner into an inviting, intriguing locale.
