A common question that we get from homeowners is if they can install their own retaining walls. A big misconception about retaining walls is that a lot of people mistake retaining walls for landscaping blocks. While landscaping blocks are perfect for enhancing a garden or backyard, retaining walls go beyond cosmetic enhancements.
Retaining walls are for the business or homeowner that’s looking to strengthen the integrity of their property’s landscape. Retaining walls are used to reinforce the soil on your property to help hold back any unwanted soil and water. Once a retaining wall is in place, the soil on your landscape becomes but stable and aids in the prevention of flooding.
To truly take advantage of the benefits of retaining walls, they should always be installed by a team of professionals. Retaining walls require dry soil in order to be installed, and we must drill far enough into the Earth so that the retaining walls are solid and stable post-installation. Retaining wall installation is a hefty job even for a team of experienced professionals, let alone a DIY individual. Whether the job is large or small, we typically will bring in a team of excavators to aid in the installation process.
