Types of Retaining Walls

Depending on your particular needs, Wheat’s Landscape can craft your ideal retaining wall. In order to do so, we will begin by asking you about your landscape. Is your backyard comprised of soil sand, clay, or another material? What is above the wall? Will the ground above or below the wall be level or sloped? What is the ideal height of the wall? All of these questions will help determine which type of retaining wall is the best fit for your Northern Virginia home. Your options include:

  • Gravity retaining wall
  • Reinforced retaining wall
  • Gabion retaining wall
  • And more!

If you know what you’re looking for, contact Wheat’s Landscape. Our team will do our best to create the retaining wall you’ve been envisioning in your backyard!
