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.

A popular choice that lasts

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.

Industry leading warranty

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.
