Finding the Right Retaining Wall Product for Your Job

September 12, 2022
Retaining walls often look like simple stacked stone, concrete, or brick, but in fact they are carefully engineered systems that require much planning. Retaining walls are a great way to provide support to slopes of soil and land, increase usable yard space, and even add attractive curb appeal to your home.
Homeowners and landscapers often utilize retaining walls as a solution to maintain soil in a specific shape for structural purposes such as elevating driveways, retaining landscape designs, and so much more. Stop by the Yard today or call us at (703) 339-8095 and talk to one of our experienced sales persons to find the right retaining wall product for your job.
