Custom Masonry – Retaining Walls
Retaining walls serve many purposes including creating useable outdoor space, retaining grades, as well as being purely decorative. Each function has its own specific material and building methods.
Green Island Design evaluates each property to determine whether a retaining wall should be used for a specific application or if a wall can be used to enhance the property’s aesthetic value. Along with the look and feel of each wall, specific guidelines need to be followed during construction that Green Island specializes in.
Some common retaining walls include:
Paver Block Wall
Companies such as Unilock, Cambridge, and Techo Bloc make paver systems specifically designed for retaining walls. These wall systems can be installed as decorative or could be used in large retaining applications along with products such as Geo Grid.
Stacked Stone Wall
Stacked stone walls provide function as well as aesthetics. Many different natural stones can be used and crafted to produce stunning visuals and enhancing a landscape.
Dry Stacked Rock Wall
Boulders can be used in place of actual walls creating a much more natural setting. The use of plantings in and around these “walls” help produce the natural look and feel boulder walls can provide.
Retaining Walls serve a purpose as well add beauty to your property. Choosing the correct color scheme, material, and strength for your wall is what Green Island Design is here for.
