To prevent soil erosion, retainer walls are often necessary on a property that has severe elevation changes. If the landscape elevation must be contained by concrete, pave stones, or boulders a retainer wall is a smart choice.

A retainer wall is often the foundation piece to a landscape design. Scapes, Inc. believes that any landscape element, including retainer walls, is an opportunity to add an interesting and appealing feature to the landscape. 

When a property requires a retainer wall, you must design around the wall to accomplish the need of the property and owner. Scapes, Inc. understands how to include the wall into the overall landscape design to  improve the appearance and function of the area. The understanding of how retainer walls work and what they require is what separates us from many other landscape design companies in the OKC area. A few things to consider when designing a retainer wall on a landscape project are:

  • Functionality – does water flow from one area to another without interruption, and how should the retainer wall be designed to prevent or remedy erosion?
  • Appeal– how can Scapes, Inc. design the retainer wall so that it
    doesn’t appear that we are trying to fix an issue?
  • Aesthetics – how does the wall interact with the landscape? What
    type of material would the customer like to use?
  • Budget– Scapes, Inc. has access to many different types of material. We can adjust the design and product used to fit the clients’ budget without compromising quality.

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
