Retaining Walls

Pavers Madera, CA When a property hasn’t been graded well, or if it has sloping land, that can impact the integrity of the landscaping, make it impossible to construct outdoor structures, and can result in flooding and pooling of water in various areas of the yard/garden. This problem can be fixed by constructing retaining walls at strategic points on the property. These walls help prevent soil erosion and they provide support to the excavated slopes.

R Lacy Interlocking Pavers provides custom retaining wall services to customers across Madera, Fresno, Clovis and Sanger. The company also caters to clients in and around Coarsegold, Oakhurst, Bass Lake, Shaver Lake as well as Friant. The different aspects involved in building retaining walls are:

Retaining Wall Blocks

While there are a number of different materials that can be used to build these structures, retaining wall blocks systems are widely used in most landscaping projects. These concrete blocks have a modular design, which makes construction very easy. In addition, these are very sturdy and long-lasting and can be used to build walls of varying lengths and heights.

Concrete Blocks

Concrete blocks that are used to build retaining walls are resilient and durable and they are one of the most cost-effective materials used in these projects. Some people feel that the concrete surfaces look very dull and drab. It’s why landscapers recommend that stone or brick veneer be affixed to these walls; this lends a very unique and attractive appearance to the installation.

Building a Retaining Wall

Construction of a retaining wall isn’t a simple job and skilled masons will be deployed in the project. This ensures the installation will be strong and last for a number of years. In most instances, this becomes part of a larger landscaping project and is part of the first phase of the installation. However, if you need retaining walls built at a later stage, a good landscaper will be able to handle that upgrade as well.

Retaining Wall Design

While retaining walls have a very specific purpose and are typically functional in nature, it’s possible to get creative with retaining wall design. In fact, it’s common to see retaining walls with in-built seating, or even recessed lighting etc. This adds dual functionality to the feature and it can be used in areas such as outdoor kitchens, decks and patio spaces; it helps demarcate the area and provides space for seating.

Block Wall

A retaining wall structure has to be strong and durable if it has to provide support to the excavated slopes or grading on your property. This makes it extremely important to use the right kind of materials in this structure. Many landscapers choose to build block walls in their projects and these concrete blocks are ideal for this purpose. The walls can also be clad with brick or natural stone veneers to enhance the appearance of the feature.

When you are looking for high grade, resilient and long-lasting paving installations for the outdoor areas of your property, it’s important to hire credible and reliable professionals like the ones at R Lacy Interlocking Pavers, to handle the job.
