Do you have a very steep area that is next to impossible to mow and never looks right? Rockland and Bergen County homeowners have found that terracing the area with a retaining wall can provide you with a hardscaping solution that is as beautiful as it is practical.
Retaining walls need to be build properly so that they do not start to lean, sag, shift or settle. TGW will make sure that your wall has the proper tie back into the earth to keep it upright and straight. If your retaining wall needs a footing, it will be done correctly so that the winter freeze does not crack it. We always design our walls with proper drainage to ensure they last as long as possible.
The materials you choose will depend upon the purpose you want your retaining wall to serve.
Here are a few solutions:
Natural stone – These can be built up and will drain naturally.
Concrete – These can be poured or made with a new type of concrete that can be carved to look like natural stone with all of the strength of solid concrete.
Concrete Block – Retaining wall blocks look like pavers and come in many colors and styles. They are great for building walls that have curves and they are very attractive.
Wood – Wooden timbers or even railroad ties can be used to build a retaining wall. These especially go well when surrounded by decks and other wooden objects.
