Retainer walls are often necessary on a house that has severe elevation changes that must be contained by concrete, pave stones, or boulders. When a homeowner contacts scapes inc to install a retainer wall, they often look at it as an unfortunate but necessary expense. At Scapes Inc, We believe that any landscape element such as a retainer wall could be turned into an opportunity to add an interesting and aesthetically appealing part of the landscape. When a property has an elevation change, there are many opportunities to take advantage. A few things we consider when designing a retainer wall on a landscape project:

  • Functionality– how does water flow from one area to another, and
    how do we need to design the wall to prevent further erosion?
  • Appeal– is there a way to design the retainer wall so that it
    doesn’t appear that we are trying to fix an issue?
  • Aesthetic– how does the wall interact with the landscape? What
    type of material would the customer like to use?
  • Budget– do we need to consider using a different type of material
    to fit the clients’ budget without compromising quality?

A retainer wall is often the foundational piece to a landscape design.
When a house requires an area to be retained, you must design around
the necessary need of the property. Understanding how to include the
wall into the landscape in a way that improves the area due to the
appearance requires the experience that Scapes Inc has. The
understanding of how they work and what they require us separates us
from many other landscape companies.
The material we use to build retainer walls include:

  • Boulders
  • Concrete
  • Pavestones
  • Erosion fabric with lumber/ rebar backing (to keep soil away from
    fences)
  • Steel
