Custom Retaining Wall Design and Installation Services


Our design principles for custom retaining wall design and installation for luxury homeowners place equal importance on function and elegance.

While landscaping walls are frequently used to terrace slopes, to restrain soil between different elevations and to establish boundaries, our natural stone retaining walls are designed to also create an elegant enclosure that enhances the stately and sophisticated architecture of your home.

These are a few retaining wall ideas for recreating timeless beauty for distinctive landscapes:

  • Dry-stacked stone retaining walls with pockets for small rock garden plants
  • Segmental rock incorporating the lush beauty of a hanging garden
  • Use of rock terracing as a functional yet spectacular decorative design element
  • Creating the enviable appearance of an old-world country estate
  • Use of contoured segmental wall block as a beautiful flower garden backdrop
