TYPES OF RETAINING WALLS USED IN LANDSCAPES
There are several types of retaining walls. But for landscapes, we usually recommend these two types:
Structural retaining walls. They are built for a specific function for your property. They are used to prevent soil erosion, handle water drainage issues, create different levels in a garden, maintain a slope, and support vertical grade changes.
Decorative retaining walls. We can also build decorative or accent retaining walls and landscaping tiers to add usable space and beauty to your outdoors. They can be used to accent certain garden features, as base for a fence, or even as seats, such as around a tree.
HIGH-QUALITY RETAINING WALL MATERIALS
There are a few different ways to build a retaining wall. At Brick by Brick Pavers and Landscaping, we specialize in mortared masonry using concrete blocks. This technique guarantees better structural integrity than the dry stone method.
We source our building units from Techo-Bloc, the leading manufacturer of segmental retaining wall blocks in North America. The Techo-Bloc retaining wall system offers the following benefits:
Superior strength – Techo-Bloc segmental retaining wall blocks are made of high-strength modular concrete units. These units are dry stacked then interlocked with pins. This unique design allows builders to construct steeper walls without compromising structural integrity. Our retaining walls can provide adequate retention and slope support. They are strong enough to support the force of lateral earth pressure.
Customizable. The Techo-Bloc segmental retaining wall blocks are available in a wide array of colors, sizes, textures, and patterns. This allows us to create retaining walls that complement and enhance the surrounding landscape design. They can be arranged to create straight, curved, or circular walls, and even steps and corners.
Versatile. Segmental retaining wall blocks can be used to create walls for functional purposes, such as widening driveways and supporting grade changes, as well as for creating decorative or accent walls.
