Retaining walls make great focal points in your garden. Any outdoor setting can be enhanced by adding dimension, depth, and wonder with retaining walls.
The majority of outdoor living areas require retaining walls. In many Denver area neighborhoods the slope in the yard is too steep. In these cases, you could not prevent soil from eroding in your yard, making it unusable.
In Denver, many yards would be unusable without terracing. It adds new dimensions to landscaping by providing multiple levels of usable space. Putting paver walkways in and around terraces makes them look even more beautiful.
Our retaining walls can enhance the functionality and beauty of your home and yard for years to come, whether you want an ornamental tree planter, elevated garden bed, or to build a retaining wall along a hill or ridge.
Retaining walls can be designed to be beautiful and functional without requiring engineering. Furthermore, they are more affordable than costly structural retaining walls.
Depending on the height of a retaining wall, the size of its foundation will vary. It is necessary to install footings below ground level. Our team will determine if drainage pipes are required or if weep holes can be installed in the wall to drain water.
In order for the road base in the footings and the soil behind the retaining wall to be compacted, the road base must be placed in 8 inch lifts. The soil must then be compacted to prevent the soil from sinking. If this is not done properly, the wall will collapse.
Generally, some water will pass through retaining walls, but in many cases drainage needs to be provided behind the wall at ground level to prevent the wall from breaking or allowing build-up. To prevent cracks or bulges in your retaining wall blocks, our walls are designed to provide drainage channels.
In general, if you have a retaining wall 4 feet high, you should plant larger trees and shrubs 4 feet away from the wall. Smaller plants and borders can be planted wherever you like. In the Denver metro area, retaining walls taller than 4 feet will usually require plans and specs from an engineer.
