Does your backyard need some additional structural support? Are you looking for a way to improve the appearance of your property’s exterior? Consider putting in a retaining wall.
Before putting in a retaining wall:
- Check local ordinances, especially for retaining walls over 4 ft tall.
- Plan out how many blocks and other material you will need. In addition, get extra, so you’ll have it.
- Find out if there are any underground utilities before digging for the foundation.
- Consider hiring a professional, especially for retaining walls over 4 ft tall.
When putting in a retaining wall, make sure to:
- Put in a solid foundation, with sufficient draining.
- Level each layer of blocks.
- Step each layer back, to lessen the effects of gravity on the wall.
- Backfill each layer as you go along, and tamp the backfilled soil. You’ll need to rent a tamper.
- Ensure proper draining. You need to prevent water from collecting behind the wall. In addition, you need to give any water that does manage to collect a route out.
Allan Block has good guides on how to build a retaining wall, if you are going to tackle it yourself.

Paver Decks, Patios, Walkways, Stairs, etc.
Need a space to enjoy your yard or entertain? Or a path to tie parts of your yard together? If so, a paved patio or walkway, respectively, could be just what you need.
Before putting in a paved surface, you need to consider what type and pattern of pavers you want.
When installing, for a sturdy base, start by laying down either 6 in. of gravel paver base and 1 in. of sand, or 1/2 in. layer of sand and interlocking paver base panels. Lowes has good guides on how to build a paver patio or walkway, if you’re gonna tackle it yourself. Or, call us, and let us handle it for you >
Is your backyard missing something? Need to break up the green with a water hazard? Install a water garden.
Water features provide soothing sounds and sights. In addition, they vary up a boring landscape both with a water feature and with aquatic types of plants.
