A retaining wall is a wall that supports different levels of soil on either side. An exceptionally useful tool if dealing with tricky terrain on your land, or if you simply want to add aesthetic features and divisions, a professionally installed retaining wall can last many decades. Keller Pavers take great pride in this excellently detailed work and will work with you to create the yard that you envisage. Whether you decide on it as a stand-alone feature, or as part of a wider construction (for example it can be attached to a pre-existing wall) our friendly team of designers and installers will be pleased to help.
What is the purpose of a retaining wall?
Retaining walls are a form of hardscaping that can build structure into your yard. They are used simply as a decorative feature or with functional intentions. With a variety of looks that you can choose from, the aesthetics will make your land look great, as well as providing practical solutions, like finding a creative way to build in paver steps, or deal with sloping land. Particularly for yards with steep terrain, you require higher planting beds that are more easily accessible than those on the ground, or if you need to prevent soil erosion, retaining walls are an excellent choice to create a feature structure that is doing the job you need.
There are many aesthetics that you can choose from for your retaining walls but in terms of materials there are three main categories: masonry, concrete, and stone. All three are extremely durable and long lasting and will enhance the style of your land by being a feature, as well as a practical solution. Under these three categories, materials such as stone, block and specific retaining wall pavers are eco-friendly, chemical free and low maintenance. They will keep their initial good looks at the point of installation with little to no work from you!
Design and styles
There are an amazing variety of designs and styles that you can choose from for your retaining wall. Depending on the overall aesthetic of your property you may decide to opt for a material and design that blends seamlessly into nature. Alternatively, maybe you decide a slick concrete paver wall is the answer to your land. We know that every home is unique and so our team of designers will help you to find the option that is the perfect fit!
The installation process begins with an informal chat with one of our team to get an idea of the kind of thing you are interested in. Once the ball is rolling, we can start to get into the details, partnering you with a designer who will assist you to make the choices that will best suit your property. Once all the decisions have been made our expert team of installers will meticulously lay your wall, ensuring great attention to detail on the wall itself, as well as other details including a drainage system to ensure that your wall will last!
