Some homeowners prefer the order and deliberate pattern of a well-installed, modular block retaining wall. They are the most commonly installed retaining walls, and you see them throughout the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, MN.
Properly installed, these walls can last 75 years. Modular block walls are built from pre-engineered, pre-cast concrete blocks that come in a variety of colors, textures, and faces (straight-faced, angular, or tumbled). Designed to retain soil where there are elevation changes, modular block walls can be curved, straight, or tiered; formal or informal.
Create more space for outdoor living. By retaining soil, these walls create level areas where there were none before, giving a homeowner more usable space in the landscape for outdoor living areas, swimming pools, patios, plant beds, and more.
Not everyone can or wants to install a retaining wall. The type of block, base course installation, drainage to use, backfill, type of soil and wall reinforcement options are things to take into account when planning a retaining wall. Southview Design stands behind our work with an industry-leading warranty.
