Retaining Walls | Commercial

Is your commercial property in need of a retaining wall?


Can a retaining wall be both functional and aesthetically pleasing?

Purposes of Retaining Walls

The primary purpose for most retaining walls is to hold back or "retain" a hillside or an unnatural slope. However, there are also other reasons your commercial property may need a retaining wall. Some of these possibilities include:

  • Prevent shifting soil
  • Provide level ground
  • Avoid excessive water runoff
  • Reclaim unusable areas
  • Reduce lawn maintenance costs

If your property has a change in elevation or a downhill slope which causes shifting soil or has excessive water runoff after it rains, a retaining wall may be essential to prevent soil erosion, flooding, and property damage. By having a proper retaining wall installed, you will also reduce lawn maintenance costs that may have been increased due to these issues.


  • Prevent erosion
  • Protect structural integrity
  • Increase property value
  • Complement landscaping
  • Enhance curb appeal

Professional Retaining Wall Installation:

Proper installation of a retaining wall requires the expertise of a professional company that knows everything that is involved in the wall's construction from start to finish. In order to achieve a retaining wall that is structurally sound and able to perform its intended functionality, in most instances engineering, soil testing, and geogrid reinforcement need to be considered. Surveying, checking for utility and water line placement as well as compliance with city, county, and local building codes are also essential. We have years of experience in building retaining walls that will not sag, lean, or sink, but will remain structurally sound while performing their intended purpose.
