If you're considering a retaining wall, contact KP Morrow Landscaping Co. to discuss the design of a system that will meet and exceed the unique characteristics of your property.
Retaining walls may look like simple stacked stone, block, or timber structures. But in fact, they're carefully designed systems that wage an ongoing battle with one of Mother Nature's most potent forces, gravity. Retaining walls restrain tons of saturated soil that would otherwise slump and slide away from a foundation or damage the surrounding landscape.
Along with sloped landscapes where water runoff causes hillside erosion, ideal locations for a retaining wall include where the downhill side of a foundation is losing supporting soil or its uphill side is under pressure from sliding soil.
