Retaining Wall and Patios
Make the most of your property
Hills and slopes on your property can stand in the way of a site that you want use for a deck, patio or other landscape feature you want to install. Or maybe you have a retaining wall already there that needs replacing. Either way, Terra Landscaping are experts in retaining wall and patios. Our masons have installed many walls and patios that will stand the test of time. You can trust us to get this tricky job right, as there are many factors that have to be taken into account:
- Where is the wall being installed, and how much soil will it have to hold back? We also have to take into account the force of the dirt when it gets rained on; its weight can increase several times
- If an existing wall is being removed, care must be taken to shore it up during removal to keep the soil from becoming loose and crumbling, it is better to keep it compacted
- If the bed being retained is in a water runoff area, drains might need to be installed
Patios need planning and prep work, too. The soil must be excavated, leveled, and have a gravel base laid. After that, you can choose any number of surfaces to have installed, from pavers, concrete or flag stone. Whatever you pick, we will manage the construction to your complete satisfaction. Your guests will be able to access more of your property with nice walkways, and they can be built to Americans with Disabilities Act code. Patios can be made from concrete or pavers, and install easily in most areas. For a real functional application, consider an outdoor kitchen complete with a built-in stove and sink. The choices are as limitless as your imagination!
So let us manage your unruly soil with retaining walls, and give you beautiful patios to serve as your outdoors entertainment areas. It’s a win-win!
