Material and Costs
It is no secret that a well engineered and well crafted retaining wall can be costly. There is no cutting corners the it comes to this type of engineering, otherwise you can end up with costly mistakes or injuries. It is important that you as the customer are aware of the many details that encompass this type of structure before you make the investment.
Retaining walls can be built out of different materials including: boulders, gabions, segmented concrete block, split-faced block, natural stone, and sometimes a type of foam known as Geofoam.
If you want to go with a more natural look, natural rock walls and boulders can be more expensive but fit your design needs. This option is also more viable if the home or business is conducive to the natural stone look.
