Retaining Wall Construction

Retaining walls are timeless elements of landscape design, enhancing and accentuating the natural curves of your garden. You may want to go for a traditional, bucolic or modern look, depending on your tastes. A concrete block retaining wall is the solution to keep erosion under control, eliminate slopes, create a plant bed, or level an area for a patio. Our team at Full Bucket can create the ideal retaining wall solution that is strong, durable, and can withstand all weather conditions.

Types of Retaining Walls

Our professionals, have used many different types of retaining walls to change the landscape and control soil erosion for our clients. Some popular materials include railroad ties, treated timbers or natural stones.

Wood is an inexpensive and easy-to-build choice for a retaining wall, but because it doesn't last very long. As the wood deteriorates, the integrity of your usable space decreases as well as that of your retaining wall. Stones, boulders or rocks are a beautiful and practical option in landscaping. However, they can be quite expensive and hard to maintain. As rodents or weeds might grow on them, you will have to keep an eye on them regularly.

Another option is cast-in place or mortared retaining walls. These walls have a textured, style and they come in different materials such as bricks, flagstones and veneers that are rigid with no movements. They are ideal for environments where erosion is a threat.
