St. Louis Retaining Walls
Protecting and beautifying your STL-area property.
Part of the joy of calling the STL area home is the landscape. Rolling hills, limestone bluffs—our home truly is beautiful. But since it is far from flat, many homes need retaining walls for safety and functionality.
At Visionscape, we design and install retaining walls of all types and sizes. With us on your side, your property will become more usable and you’ll boost your curb appeal.
Your Retaining Wall Options
There is no one specific way a retaining wall must look or be built. However, they all share a common function—retaining the soil behind the wall. Many materials and designs can get the job done, and which is right for you depends on everything from your overall design to the type of soil in your yard.
How to Know if Your Property Needs a Retaining Wall
Our top suggestion for determining if you need a retaining wall? Consult with our experts! With that said, there are some signs that indicate you should have one installed.
Are you noticing a lot of erosion in your yard, especially after it rains? This can cause a lot of problems, from clogging your drains to washing away your plants and grass. A retaining wall will hold your soil in place and minimize or eliminate erosion.
Sometimes, it isn’t the erosion in your yard that is the concern. If your home sits downhill from soil fault lines, or just downhill from another property with a lot of erosion, land could come sliding your way under the right conditions. With a retaining wall, this can be managed.
Retaining walls aren’t just about keeping your yard looking pretty; they protect the very integrity of your home. If the soil is washing away from your home and leaving more and more of your foundation exposed, a retaining wall will keep your home safer.
