Retaining Walls

Retaining Walls, Frankfort, IL In outdoor spaces and landscapes, retaining walls are indispensable assets for properties characterized by slopes, irregular terrain, or soil erosion challenges.

Our Retaining Wall Installation Process

Installing a retaining wall involves several meticulous steps to ensure its durability and effectiveness in preventing soil erosion and creating level surfaces. Here's a breakdown of the typical process we follow:

  • We survey the landscape to assess the terrain, identify potential problem areas, and determine the optimal location for the retaining wall.

  • Our designers will discuss with you to understand the project's objectives, budget, and design preferences. This collaborative phase helps tailor the retaining wall to meet specific needs.

  • Our team develops detailed plans and designs, incorporating factors like wall height, drainage solutions, and material choices. These plans ensure the wall's structural integrity.

  • Depending on the project's aesthetics and functional requirements, you can choose from concrete blocks, natural stone, timber, or bricks. We help guide your choices as they impact the wall's appearance and durability.

  • Before installation, we prepare the site by excavating and leveling the area where we will build the retaining wall. Proper compaction of the base is crucial for stability.

  • Our retaining wall installers lay the chosen materials meticulously according to the design specifications. They integrate drainage features, such as weep holes and gravel backfill, to manage water flow behind the wall.

  • Backfilling behind the wall is done in layers, followed by compaction to ensure the soil is tightly packed, minimizing settling.

  • A comprehensive retaining wall inspection is conducted to verify its structural integrity, drainage effectiveness, and overall appearance. We make any necessary adjustments or finishing touches.
