Retaining Walls
If there's one thing New Hampshire residents know about their state, it is this - the land is rarely flat!

To get the most use out of your landscape you need to install retaining walls. Retaining walls level front walkways with attractive terracing or extend backyard with play areas and raised patios for entertaining. Concrete retaining wall blocks have come a long way in the past 15 years. They are tumbled to an antique finish to resemble natural stone. More than just gray, retaining wall blocks come in a wide selection of natural earth tones that match virtually any home siding you see in New Hampshire.

While it may look easy to install a landscape wall with concrete retaining wall block, it takes some skill to build a solid straight wall that will hold back the earth behind it. It’s worth it to hire a retaining wall contractor to do the job right! Proper base excavation and compaction, adequate drain stone behind the wall, and knowing how high a wall can be built without terracing or reinforcement are all critical to the success of a retaining wall project.
