Retaining walls help keep soil and plant life from escaping from their designated areas. Although these walls are often thought of as purely functional, they can also be used to add your own unique style to your landscape.
Retaining walls can be made from different materials to add texture and color to your outdoor living space. When adding retaining walls, it’s important to ensure that all elements are considered. Retaining walls should be able to handle the weight of soil and plant life, and should allow for proper drainage. Poorly constructed retaining walls will not last long and can pose a safety hazard. The best way to ensure that retaining walls meet your needs is by hiring a qualified landscape designer.
Grigg Design is your premier choice for landscape design in Northern Virginia. We understand the steps needed to create a space that is both functional and stylish. Our team works directly with you to create a plan that meets your individual needs and budget.
Retaining walls can be as creative or original as you like. The following are some of our favorite ideas:
Poured Concrete Retaining Walls
Concrete is the strongest and most durable choice of material. Retaining walls made from concrete can be painted, carved, stained, or veneered. Using concrete allows you to create a clean, modern appearance to your outdoor living space.
Stacked Stone Blocks
Retaining walls made from stacked stone blocks give your landscape a rustic appearance. You can create a unique look by combining different colored blocks.
Brick Retaining Walls
Bricks provide a sturdy, durable choice for retaining walls. Retaining walls made from brick provide adequate drainage and add a touch of charm to outdoor living spaces.
