Retaining walls

Sculpt your landscape with walls

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 sculpt the landscape and transform unusable hills into outdoor living spaces.

How to determine which wall is right for you

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 in various 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 the design or construction of retaining walls can create serious headaches (particularly water problems) for you or your neighbors. Elevate Outdoor Design brings superior landscaping expertise to every project, often solving problems in advance that competitors don’t foresee.
