Natural Stone Retaining Walls
Natural stone retaining walls are one of the most classic forms of landscaping. They have been used in countless regions all over the world, and have been able to stand the test of time. A well made dry-stone wall can last for centuries. This is because the wall does not use any kind of concrete, mortar, or cement to attach rocks together. Instead these walls use the natural shape of the stone.
Concrete, mortar and cement will all wear down over a few decades due to temperature changes (summer vs winter), moisture, and stress-cracks. A natural stone wall is able to flex and bend with the environment in order to adapt to changing conditions over time.
Brick and Other Material Retaining Walls
Brick and other man-made looking retaining walls are popular options for many properties due to the variety of materials and textures that the walls can employ. There is a wide variety of bricks, woods, synthetics, and concretes that can be used in any combination to create a retaining wall. This allows customers to get the exact look that they want at a competitive price.
Blackwell's number one focus is build quality. We offer the longest masonry warranties in the region, and we strive to create designs that will last a lifetime. We put the extra effort in across all areas of the project to ensure that it will not weather, crack, sag, flex or have any other defect. Learn more about us by clicking here.
