If your landscaping has sloping land and you want to build some outdoor features on it, you need to first clear some space for it and level the land. In case of sloping land, a certain amount of excavation would be required to create a stable ground surface to build a patio, deck, driveway, pathways, walkways etc. When any land is excavated, the open surface of the slope needs to be provided some support to prevent mudslides and soil erosion. This is when retaining walls are constructed to provide the landscape the support it needs.
We at La Pavers are a leading landscaping company based in Harahan. We have been a member of ICPI (Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute) for the last 9 years and cater to customers across New Orleans Metairie, Kenner and Marrero. We have also handled a number of commercial and residential retaining wall projects in and around Chalmette, Slidell, Covington, Hammond, as well as Mandeville.
Retaining walls are specially engineered and designed for the space they are to be installed in. These walls are typically made of concrete blocks or CMUs. These modular units are very strong and durable and can be used to build different types of retaining walls.
Retaining Wall Design
Many homeowners don’t want drab looking concrete walls in their landscaping. In this case, we recommend that stone or brick veneer be installed on the concrete surface. This emulates the look of the natural materials and adds the attraction quotient to the feature.
We have also used materials such as wood, brick, poured concrete and aggregates in retaining wall construction. In some of our projects, we have also designed retaining walls with in-built seating. These installations are ideal for fireplace and fire pit zones and outdoor kitchens. In some instances we have built these dual functionality walls along the periphery of a patio or deck space as well.
We use only the best materials in the work and experienced and expert installers handle the job. This means you get very resilient retaining wall structures that add to the integrity and beauty of your landscaping. We also handle commercial retaining wall construction projects and have built these specially-engineered walls in outdoor spaces of office complexes, shopping malls, schools, hospitals and other commercial settings as well.
