Do You Need a Retaining Wall?

A retaining wall serves as a sturdy structure designed to hold back soil, allowing landscapers to manage varying elevations on your property. When planning your landscape, it’s crucial to account for the different slopes present. These slopes provide an opportunity to craft distinct ground levels using retaining walls. At Alterra, we can fashion eye-catching features like stairways flanked by flowerbeds, seamlessly connecting different sections of your property. Retaining walls are used where we need some extra muscle to stop the ground from sliding down due to erosion. Their main job is to take on gravity and keep the slope from pushing everything downhill. But these walls are not just tough; they also give us flat spaces on sloping land.

Great job Alterra have done. It has been almost 6months now. No issue at all. No drainage problem at all from heavy rain and melting snow; retaining wall stands; and ground is level. Great workmanship, stone cutting and layout, nice to have Alterra crew to work on my backyard project. Thanks again.
