Retaining Walls

Ground Cover Supply constructs retaining walls for developers and homeowners, providing dependable service at affordable prices with beautiful results. Structural retaining walls add strength and appeal to commercial designs while a landscape retaining wall can transform a generic backyard into an elegant courtyard.

We can tame hillside with a stone retaining wall, create a beautiful plating area with a freestanding wall, or give your guests a nice place to sit in your garden or around your fire pit with a sitting wall. We design and install segmental walls that are not only beautiful, but strong enough to stand the test of time.

Retaining walls are designed to hold back soil when there is a drastic change in elevation. They are often used to terrace yards that originally had a steep slope, they can create usable outdoor space and control erosion. Low retaining walls are frequently used as planting beds and can add interest to an otherwise flat yard.

There is much more to installing a retaining wall than stacking blocks or bricks. When drainage is not properly installed, for example. hydrostatic pressure will build up behind the wall and cause damage such as bulging or cracking.  Our staff has the knowledge and training to build any type of wall you need, starting with a solid foundation and designed at the correct height to bear the necessary load. We also build in the correct amount of drainage and compact the backfill to ensure a safe and reliable installation.
