Stone retaining walls are not only durable but long lasting and aesthetically pleasing. While they are more expensive than block or wooden walls, they never need to be maintained or replaced, which makes them the most appealing solution for contractors and homeowners alike.
BLOCK RETAINING WALLS
A segmental block retaining wall is another popular option for retaining land slopes and yard grades. Concrete block is relatively inexpensive to install and quite a strong solution for retaining walls. It also allows for easy and simple drainage and water mitigation. Block retaining walls are not as durable and long lasting as natural stone and boulder walls, but are just as aesthetically pleasing, and they do afford homeowners with a sound and more affordable wall solution that will last for a lifetime.
WOOD RETAINING WALLS
While a wood retaining wall may not be the most popular wall solution, it does have it's benefits and uses for certain projects. For those who simply cannot afford a natural stone or block retaining wall, wood cross-tie walls just may be the ticket. A properly drained wood retaining wall can last for many years and their natural look allows them to blend nicely with existing natural surroundings, especially when stained. That said, they do require sealing or staining every couple of years so they don't fade or rot.
