Atlanta Retaining Wall Contractor

Atlanta Retaining Wall Contractor

Are you looking to install a beautiful, new retaining wall or to replace an existing wall with a sturdy new wall? Greenlawn Georgia Hardscaping & Landscaping is the experienced Atlanta retaining wall contractor you can trust. Installing a new retaining wall in your yard or business property will both transform the look of your property and provide the structural integrity you need.

Retaining walls are advantageous when a home or business owner desires to create functional flat areas in the property, build a wall for decorative purposes, control erosion or storm water damage, or create a seating wall around a patio or fire pit.

Types of Retaining Walls for Atlanta Home & Business Properties

A well-built block, concrete or stone wall is essential for controlling storm water flow and soil erosion, and for providing sturdy ground for stairs, ramps, patios and more. Our Atlanta retaining wall contractors have many  years of experience in installing a wide variety of different types of retaining walls, including:

  • Modular, Segmental, Interlocking Retaining Walls
    Segmental retaining walls consist of interlocking modular concrete blocks used to hold back a sloping face of soil to provide a solid, vertical front.
  • Poured Concrete Retaining Walls
    Poured concrete retaining walls offer superior vertical and lateral strength, and waterproofing capabilities.
  • Dry Stack or Natural Stone Walls
    Dry stack stone walls are constructed with the mortar toward the back of the stones to provide a natural stone look, without having to see much of a mortar joint. These dry stack walls are mostly decorative, yet we can use them to retain smaller rises. Natural stone walls also work well in landscaping design, used especially in raised beds near patios, swimming pool, fire pits, etc.
  • Timber, Wooden, Pressure Treated Retaining Walls
    We do not install many timber retaining walls as they have a limited life span and reduced retaining capacity. In fact, we’ve seen pressure treated timbers rot in less than eight years. We encourage our customers to consider more permanent retaining wall materials and designs.

Retaining Wall Plans and Permits

Engineered plans and permits are now often required by Georgia municipalities for retaining walls over a certain height. When a tall retaining wall is under consideration, Greenlawn Georgia Hardscaping and Landscaping will often recommend options to expedite and enhance your project by suggesting multiple low retaining walls arranged to create tiered levels in the property. This planning option can greatly impact the timing of the work.

Home and commercial property owners are encouraged to check local codes prior to beginning the project. Municipalities will often provide guidelines such as these retaining wall guidelines provided by Gwinnett County.

Workmanship and Materials Warranties

Greenlawn Georgia backs up our work with a comprehensive workmanship warranty. Our preferred hardscaping product, Techo-Bloc, comes with a standard lifetime guarantee. Our goal as your Atlanta retaining wall contractor is to meet and exceed your expectations as we diligently design and complete the landscaping and hardscaping work.
