Backyard living project

Block retaining walls

consist of modular concrete blocks that interlock with each other. They are used to hold back sloping grade, soil, or make more useable area such as widening a driveway or walk way that might not have been an option beforehand due to grade and slope issues.

Segmental retaining walls can and steeper with the ability to retain the force of lateral earth pressures with the proper backfill materials.

Retaining walls can be installed in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and surfaces. They can also incorporate straight or curved areas with the option of using steps and corners.

Retaining walls can often be used to change the grade of an area, and decorate an existing area like walkways for more curb appeal.
