Retaining walls

Function and beauty can come together in a properly designed and constructed retaining wall. While they may look simple, retaining walls are carefully engineered structures that hold back tons of soil, fighting a never-ending war against gravity.

They can transform a back yard with steep slopes of unusable land into a beautiful area for outdoor living. They can also be used to keep soil from sliding away from foundations and to prevent erosion.

Following a site analysis, Williams & Williams will explain our findings and recommend the construction approach most suited to your site needs. We make sure your retaining wall landscape will also include the proper drainage, dimensions and design necessary to avoid future cracking, bulging or leaning.

Retaining walls can be made from a variety of materials, from cement retaining walls to wooden retaining walls. Also, retaining wall stones can be found in many shapes, colors and textures. Williams & Williams will provide assistance in your decision on the best choice.

Depending on the size and style of wall required, options for materials can include:

  • Railway ties
  • Wood
  • Natural stone
  • Blocks
  • Bricks
  • Concrete
  • Pre-cast concrete

We'll help you find the best fit for your property based on experience in all kinds of retaining wall construction from large, engineered structures including concrete retaining walls and rock walls to smaller dry-stack walls.
