Retaining walls are a great way to showcase and build up your garden into tiers while working with natural grade and slope changes throughout your landscape in Victoria, BC. They also help create a natural divide between sections of your garden, such as the transition between your flower garden, lawn, and patio.
At Costa Verde in Victoria, BC, we’ve built and installed many retaining walls since we began our business in 2007.
We’ve designed and constructed structurally engineered walls with weight and water table restraints for proper drainage and run-off. We work with a variety of materials, including solid cut stone blocks, dry stone, large rocks and boulders of various shapes and sizes, traditional poured-concrete, and even large railroad timbers.
There are many different styles and options for designing and installing retaining walls—and building stone stairs and pathways between. For example, we can use alan blocks, blast rock boulders, garden wall scapes, and traditional dry stone (without concrete or mortar), as just a few material options.
One foreman on our team used to work in North Vancouver on million-dollar landscape projects and has an eye for finding flat-faced local blast-rock boulders for walls. Due to this, and the reduced cost of our local blast rock, we specialize in using well-placed large boulders as retaining walls.
The boulders can be casually placed in garden beds to allow planting all around while retaining the slope. Or, they can be built as flat-faced and topped walls with built-in stairs and benches. We encourage these when possible as can be used as natural playgrounds for the kids and look stunning too.
