Retaining Walls

When people think of retaining walls, they generally feel that these are only stability-adding structures that are built to contain soil erosion. Though this is a fact, it’s also true that these walls have many more practical uses in a landscape. Trademark Hardscapes is one of the leading landscaping companies in the region; over the years we have built a range of outdoor features and completed hardscaping projects for residential customers in and around Plainfield. We have the experience, expertise and the resources to build any type of retaining walls.

Types of Walls

Our company has built some of the most beautifully-designed and engineered walls for many customers. The different types of features are:

  • Seat and knee walls
  • Defining/ free-standing walls
  • Walls with built-in seating
  • Walls to direct guests & traffic and replace fences
  • Accent walls or ones for raised plant-beds

Different Materials

The retaining walls we design and install for you could be made from a variety of materials including concrete, brick, stone, wood and other man-made materials. In some cases only a single material will be used to build the entire wall, while at others it can be a combination. This choice will be based on factors such as:

Retaining Walls
  • Location
  • Size
  • Purpose
  • Aesthetics
  • Functionality
  • Maintenance
  • Cost
  • Other

The Considerations

Once we have understood what your requirements are, we will also conduct a thorough survey on the area and check which part of it is graded. If you have to install a driveway, walkway or pathway, that too will be taken into account. We also check if there is a slope on your property that needs to be supported while the landscape is being designed. In most instances, construction of retaining walls takes place in the initial stages of the landscaping project and is a part of its hardscaping.

The Benefits

Retaining Walls

These walls add a lot of stability to the landscape serve a very functional purpose and add to the beauty and value of the property as well. Though most retaining walls are constructed on graded land, we can also build free-standing walls that help define semi-enclosed outdoor areas. These may have additional features such as columns, pillars and pilasters. We may also add decorative, concealed lighting and natural stone caps to the installation, to make it look unique and attractive.
