In addition to adding visual interest, retaining walls are often used to control erosion, manage runoff, or create level spaces for patios, gardens, or structures. Retaining walls can be used to literally sculpt the landscape and transform unusable hills into outdoor living spaces.
Boulder Walls are often built from smooth, round glacial boulders, but there are many other boulder wall options to choose from.
Modular Block Walls use pre-engineered, pre-cast concrete blocks that come in a variety of colors and textures.
Popular around swimming pools and fire features, low seat walls can also be free-standing or used to retain soil for a planting bed or elevation change.
Stacked Stone Walls are constructed by specially trained staff without mortar between the stones. Yet they are strong, stable, lasting and uniquely beautiful.
Not everyone understands how to plan or build a retaining wall correctly. Mistakes in design or construction of retaining walls can create serious headaches (particularly water problems) for you or your neighbors. Southview Design brings superior landscaping expertise to every project, often solving problems in advance that competitors don’t foresee.
