The interlocking concrete retaining wall systems that are available today reflect a customer driven product line that imitates natural stone with new technology to create embossed stone textures and colors that mimic those found in our native outcroppings of bedrock.
Retaining walls are the most used vertical design element in a landscape.
What more and more people are coming to realize is that a retaining wall is much more than the beautiful stone face that you see.
The hidden structure behind the wall façade is the real work horse behind the stability and longevity of a wall. It should include a combination of a good drainage field of clean drain rock and perforated pipe to allow any water approaching the wall to be eliminated. It is also imperative that sufficient compaction of the subsoil, back fill and drain rock take place.
A properly designed and installed retaining wall should last for upwards of 70 to 80 years.
