When your property is sloped or hilly like many areas in Minnesota, retaining walls are great for providing structural support to your property by leveling out slopes and helping to control soil erosion.
When it snows or rains, soil can often erode and wash away from rainwater. If you’ve spent money on fertilization, seeding, or other lawn care services, you are losing money each time it rains and your soil erodes. Having a custom retaining wall installed on your property will prevent your soil from washing away and protect your investment.
A retaining wall also helps to protect your property’s foundation. When soil erodes, over time it affects your property’s structural foundation with more and more washing away each time it rains or snows. Retaining walls hold soil in place, thereby preventing your foundation from deteriorating over time and can save you a hefty repair bill in the future.
Our company’s retaining walls help add structural support to your property, while our seating walls provide added beauty and extra seating for your outdoor living spaces.
Seating walls are similar to retaining walls, but are typically shorter and designed for providing extra seating around your property. Whereas retaining walls provide erosion control and help level out your property, seating walls tend to be more for decorative purposes and are incorporated into your existing landscaping and hardscaping designs. Seating walls are best placed along your property where people tend to gather, such as around a fire pit or outdoor kitchen. These walls add more livable space to your outdoor areas and provide increased curb appeal.
We make sure our retaining walls are effective and resilient by using materials that are durable and long-lasting. Some of our most common construction materials include:
At Hills Landscaping, we take all the necessary steps to guarantee your retaining wall is stable and effective. Our most common retaining walls are constructed of boulders lifted up with mini excavators to set the boulders perfectly in place on your property. When we build walls above four feet in height, a structural engineer is on hand to ensure the wall is stable and will last for years to come.
Because our area of Minnesota is very hilly, many of our clients opt for stone steps that help level out their property while adding a decorative touch to their yard. We pair our steps with beautiful retaining walls to hold back soil, level out your property, and add curb appeal to your property. Our steps are most commonly constructed of four-foot limestone or bluestone blocks, but we also provide paver steps when requested. Whichever material you choose, we make sure your new steps perfectly match your business or home’s aesthetic.
