Decorative Stone Retaining Walls
Retaining walls add beauty and value to your home.
Zelaya Landscaping Service can help you build your next stackable retaining wall that will complement your garden and lawn. Retaining walls can be a great way not only to help with erosion and water drainage, but also to create beautiful, usable garden space. With many garden blocks to choose, we will help you design a wall that will meet your needs and remain friendly to your budget. When we build your retaining wall, we ensure best safety practices. The first thing we consider is which way to divert the water, and place a perforated drainpipe against the back of the wall before backfilling. We then backfill the area behind the wall in layers, with gravel against the wall and fill dirt behind it, firmly tamping down each layer. And we finish with a layer of topsoil. Laying the first course of blocks properly is very important as this first line is what keeps the rest of the wall from sliding or moving. If we are working on slope, we will start with the edge or corner that is most visible as it will also provide extra support to the entire row.
