With decades of experience, East Coast brings top-notch engineering, stonemasonry and artistic skill to the design and build of your retaining wall.
OVERVIEW. Retaining walls restructure sloping hills and hold back soil to secure the land for terraced landscapes, garden beds, patios, walkways, driveways and more. Their protective and artful stonework prevent erosion from gravity and water, directing rainfall safely away from hardscapes, landscapes and your home’s foundation.
BEAUTY. In addition to structural support and drainage control, retaining walls add architectural beauty, help define outdoor living spaces and can provide built-in natural seating. Artful, gorgeous stonework compliments your home’s style, adds visual interest and elevates the curb appeal and value of your property. Our highly skilled stonemasons build your hand-crafted retaining wall one stone at a time.
MATERIALS. Depending on the size, functionality and desired aesthetic, retaining walls can be built out of manufactured modular blocks, natural stone or even gabion walls when extreme erosion control is needed (i.e., stacked wire mesh cages filled with loose rock). Many of our projects use Techo-Bloc’s concrete blocks, known for their beauty, high quality and wide-ranging selection of color, size and texture.
INTEGRATED DRAINAGE SYSTEMS. There’s a lot more to a beautiful retaining wall than meets the eye. Retaining walls are often the visual part of a larger integrated drainage system, hiding a well-engineered combination of buried plastic sheeting, layers of gravel and interconnected underground drainage pipes that effectively and safely guide water away from your property.
For this Maryland client, East Coast built a beautiful natural stone retaining wall as part of an integrated drainage system to prevent water pouring down from a steep neighboring hill, protecting their yard and home foundation from water damage.
They did a retaining wall. It's perfect. They showed up when they said they were going to and finished the job up nicely. I hadn't worked with them before...I have some jobs in the works, and I plan on reusing them...I would call on them again...
