Garden retaining walls differ from regular retaining walls because they are not meant to control changes in the ground’s elevation, to correct a slope, or to hold backfill. In some circumstances, garden retaining walls are made for some strength of the garden but their main purpose is to simply be a decorative border used in a landscaping/hardscaping design. In most cases the garden retaining walls will also protect your garden from the effects of various whether conditions.
Most garden walls that are less than six feet (counting the foundation) do not need to obtain a permit but the laws change from city to city. Our contractors will always make sure that your new garden wall is compliant with all zoning requirements in your area and if necessary, all permits will be obtained before construction begins.
