Retaining Walls

Low maintenance landscape with retaining wall supporting a Wisteria plant

Retaining walls offer cosmetic & artistic improvements as well as solutions to drainage and erosion or steep grade problems. Block retaining walls will last a lifetime because they are concrete. Segmental block retaining walls, pre-engineered retaining wall blocks, and modular retaining wall systems are all the same product. They are colored and pre-engineered building blocks of various sizes, shapes, colors and textures. Specific building practices must be followed to ensure a safe wall that will last a life time.

The most popular walls are the 6” & 8” blocks from pavestone. The “Highland and “Diamond Pro” series are a “broken face” design available in a 1 or 3 piece (width) block. The 3 piece design helps break the “brick pattern” of same size blocks in the new retaining wall by adding a random looking vertical joint pattern. This type of wall is the most versatile and cost effective wall available. Long serpentine curves, short & tight curves, outside & inside corners, and various columns and steps can be created with optional blocks and caps.

Because manufacturers offer numerous combinations of size and color, these walls can be tailored to meet every jobs unique aesthetic requirements. You can choose from solid colors, 2 color or 3 color blends to help match existing architecture or other hardscape items already in your landscape. There are also retaining wall systems that offer a finished face on two sides for corners, columns or free standing, patio / seat walls. Matching or contrasting cap blocks offer another design option and mixing the color of blocks within the wall can add more unique design elements. Custom color blends are available direct from pavestone for large projects.

Burt built a beautiful paver patio w/sitting wall and a fire pit ring in our backyard. It has transformed the yard into a gathering space that we will enjoy for years to come. We look forward to finishing up with Burt in the spring with Phase 2 -- new sod!
Michelle H.
Burt and his team did a great job for me on a fairly large job of grading, new sod and a retaining wall. I am very pleased with the outcome of the project and would highly recommend him for any landscaping projects small or large. He takes pride in his work and works hard to meet his customers expectations. I will be using him again for a smaller job in the next few weeks.
Lane P.
Burt just finished putting in a large retaining wall for me. The work was done perfect and I love the end product. What I value the most was his insight and advice. He could have just built what I told him, but instead he advised me to make adjustments. His suggestions were an improvement and actually cost less than what I asked for. Its refreshing when someone gives you advice that will save you money when he could have pocketed the extra profit! Love working with him.
Alicia A.
Burt is very knowledgeable in his field and has a great eye for design. He is honest and fair with his prices.
