Retaining Walls

A well-designed retaining wall will enhance the overall appearance of your landscaping and provide essential soil and rock retention.

There are many different types of retaining walls, and a wide variety of materials to choose from. If you have a steep area in your yard that needs to be contained, or if you’re looking to add a strong structural element, K² Landscapes can design and install a retaining wall that suits the design and structure of your landscaping. See examples of our retaining wall projects below.
