Natural Rock Retaining Walls
Retaining walls can help us to shape, organize, and control the topography that all other aspects of the Landscape Design will build upon. We use retaining walls to control erosion, create level and usable areas on a slope, or to create topography in a flat area. When incorporated into a well thought-out design they can add flow to a landscape, helping to guide the guest to a front door, backyard patio, or a ponds edge. The structural demands of the wall and the overall theme of the Landscape Design will help to decide the materials that should be used for a wall. Green Acres has been a leading retaining wall installer in Alaska since we began in 1991. We have used this experience to offer a broad range of special design features and retaining wall materials. Our walls often include complex design features such as staircases, terraces, and natural curving lines. A wall may be integrated into a cascading waterfall or run along the waters edge of a rippling pond. Many of our designs will include retaining walls to define a patio area or elevate planting beds.
