Block and stone walls or Retaining walls made of stone and concrete not only add to the style of your landscaping and backyard design but also help protect it too. A retaining wall is most commonly used for surrounding an area of a garden and will guard your property against soil erosion.

A retaining wall is built just like an average wall but with a one inch pipe to carry drainage. There are several different designs that retaining walls are built to, such as: gravity retaining walls, anchored retaining walls, and cantilevered retaining walls. Each retaining wall has its own purpose to either just separate the soil or separate and hold the soil in a particular direction to form it in to the shape and width that is desired. Because of this feature, these block and stone walls are useful for expanding driveways, walkways, and outdoor patio areas to be wider.

Northern VA Block & Stone Retaining Wall Contractor Company

Block retaining walls hold soil or backfill and help prevent the soil loads from sliding and help transform it in to the desired shape and level. The modular retaining walls (also referred to as segmental retaining walls) are concrete blocks that interlock with one another and are either solid or hollow and filled with soil. The concrete blocks (also known as CMU blocks) can be stacked or can be (but rarely are) set in mortar. This type of retaining wall is also ideal when you are building taller or steeper walls.

Modular or segmental retaining walls present many functional benefits like time-efficient construction projects, easy changes to a property’s grade, slope, or ground level, and is easily formed and used for curved structures and a wide variety of other complicated architectural layouts.

Here are some things to consider before putting up your wall:

1. Always check with the city that you live in and your homeowners association to see if any permits are required before building any walls, although in most states you can get away with building a wall under three feet on your property. For anything above that you will need a permit and a green light from an engineer.

2. Steel rebars or fiberglass pins or clips are usually placed in the center of the retaining wall for added structural integrity.

3. Plastic pipe will be installed, ranging in length for every six feet of your retaining wall for proper drainage.

Block and stone walls are built with concrete or CMU blocks in the center of the wall with a decorative layer over the concrete like a veneer. Block and stone walls can be easily designed and covered in a variation of styles, shades, sizes, and exterior textures. You can choose natural stone, rock, or pavers as the outside decorative layer to your wall.
