A retaining wall is a structure that holds or retains the earth behind it. Also used to turn a hillside property into a flat, useable area or parking pad. There are many types of materials that can be used to create retaining walls, such as concrete blocks, railway ties, poured concrete foundations, rocks, armour stone, pressure treated lumber, interlocking blocks and many more. Some products are easier to install, others will have a shorter life span, others are expensive and will last forever, but all can be used to achieve the same outcome. Proper drainage behind the wall is just as essential as a proper bases and installation techniques.  If the water collects behind the wall, with no drainage, winter will cause the water to freeze and it will expand and cause the wall to fail.  Contact us for all your structural retaining wall needs
