Retaining Walls We Love
Sloping hillsides, bluffs, steep drop-offs, rough terrain, creeks, and ravines are all hallmarks of the natural landscape here in the Pacific Northwest. Some might see the challenge of trying to create functional yards in such an environment, but we see the opportunity to get creative—especially when we start talking about retaining walls.
Retaining walls offer the perfect blend of form and function, serving dual purposes in landscape design. While helping homeowners make the most of a sloped lot, retaining walls also provide added interest, distinctive style, and beauty. Over the years, we have installed countless retaining walls in a multitude of designs and materials. Here is a collection of some of our favorites.
Natural stone retaining walls are a popular choice and offer a wide variety of colors and textures and styles from refined to rustic.
Steel and concrete are two materials often used in retaining walls to achieve a specific aesthetic that blends modern industrial with natural elements.
Concrete block retaining walls are another popular choice with a selection of stone colors, styles, and sizes that can be configured in a number of ways.
