How You Can Craft Your
Stone veneers are a protective and decorative covering for vertical walls like retaining walls. While these materials are used as a covering and require a surface to be placed on, CMU blocks can be used if no pre-existing surface is present.
Our stone veneers are commonly used for their durability, lightweight materials and its ability to turn any plain wall into one that oozes luxury.
Concrete blocks are one of the more modern and sophisticated materials that we offer. Because concrete blocks are man-made, they offer a wide selection to choose from while still being a flexible material.
Concrete blocks are commonly used for their ability to be placed on an affordable compacted gravel base while still being able to provide support when pressure is applied.
Brick is by far one of the most popular building materials across the country and it’s easy to see why. With different color choices in the orange, brown and red hues with variations like tumbled or recycled brick, customization is fun!
Brick is also one of the few building materials that can stand the test of time as bricks can last upwards of 50 years!

Poured concrete is one of the materials that are best suited for modern surroundings and landscaping. To use concrete as your retaining wall material, you must make sure to have proper drainage for the wall.
If drainage standards are not met for your wall, you can experience cracking, discoloration and shifting, but concrete is also the strongest retaining wall material we offer.
Where some will consider boulders a viable option for retaining walls, they don’t blend in with many landscapes. Our natural stone, on the other hand, offers the same traditional benefits as boulders like durability, longevity, and strength.
Because natural stone is a smaller material, many homeowners feel free to experiment with different sizes, colors and textures to craft the perfect wall.
A benefit that paver retaining walls have over traditional concrete walls is that they won’t begin to crack or fail when being fixed in place isn’t an option due to moving soils.
Because the paver walls construction giving it more flexibility, you won’t have to worry about cracks developing and you can expect your retaining wall to serve you for decades.
