Typically, we use interlocking blocks to build our retaining and seating walls. Explore some of the common materials we use to build your retaining or seating wall:
Concrete blocks and pavers
Concrete blocks and pavers can withstand harsh weather conditions, including rain, wind, hail, and snow. Additionally, there is a lot of versatility available with pavers. Pavers come in an array of sizes, colors, and textures so you can plan the perfect look for your landscape.
Boulders are one of the most popular materials used for retaining and seating walls. They can tolerate significant levels of erosion and still stand firmly. One kind we offer is limestone boulders, which are made up of sand, silt, and clay. They offer a natural look that will complement your landscape.
We offer both mortared and unmortared stacked stones. While both are sturdy options, mortared stones typically do a better job of withstanding the outdoor elements.
