Types of Retaining Wall Constructions

There are several different types of retaining walls that you can choose from for your project. Deciding the best type can depend on your specific situation, as each material or technique will suit a specific kind of project best. Our team of professionals are always there to advise you on which is best for your property and your budget.

Segmented Retaining Walls

These can be made from a variety of products including many manmade stone and concrete blocks. These walls do not employ mortar, and are simply stacked one on top of the other. The benefit of this sort of construction is that segmented walls can curve and adjust to the land formations in your yard. The result is a retaining wall construction that feels more organic, but with a polished and uniform look.

Stone Retaining Walls

Made from brick, cinder block, or natural stone, this type of retaining wall construction can be made with or without the use of mortar. Usually this type of retaining wall will look more formal than segmented walls. However, the cost of materials can be more costly, especially if you choose an expensive natural stone. 

Concrete Retaining Walls

These types of retaining walls last the longest. Unfortunately, a concrete wall is not very attractive by itself. Therefore, these walls are often complemented with other decorative accents, which might increase the cost.


Timber is a good material for retaining wall construction because it blends naturally with most landscapes. It is also an easy and cost effective material to use for retaining wall construction. It gives the landscape a rustic look that will go well with a matching construction. However, the main downside is that timber retaining walls do not last as long as other materials.

Benefits of Retaining Walls

Whether to make more flat and usable space in your yard or to control erosion of a steep slope, retaining wall construction is done for a variety of reasons. Some of the most popular reasons include:

  • Functional Benefits: Retaining wall construction is often necessary if a drastic change in the slope of a hill is necessary. A professionally constructed retaining wall will hold back up to 20 tons of soil. This allows you to prevent water runoff from eroding foundations or other landscaping features. It can also help solve drainage problems.
  • Aesthetic Benefits: Whether you want to have a uniform flat profile for your property, or you just want an eye-catching feature that will make for an impressive visual display, retaining wall construction can be the answer. Retaining walls have their practical value, but they can also make a statement visually by helping you install raised beds for decorative purposes.
  • Added Value: Landscaping and retaining wall construction can add value to your property. Recent studies have demonstrated that landscaping will increase real estate value by as much as 20 percent.
