Decorative concrete block is a very attractive, functional and economical choice for a retaining wall.  There are many choices available today designed specifically for the retention of soil.  The top manufacturers have a full line of products to suit peoples tastes and budgets.  Many of them come with engineered specifications on construction methods, to get the correct wall built at the right height.  One of the best advantages when retaining earth with theses block walls is the batter (the wall steps back each course), and the drainage ability.  For taller retaining walls using the correct back fill material, Geo stabilization materials and good compaction, is very important.  Once installed correctly, this makes a long lasting, durable but, still very attractive retaining wall that will be standing tall for years to come.  When you have our experts build your wall you can be confident it was built correctly.  Below are some retaining wall examples from three diferent available quality manufacturers.  There are many other styles and options available from all the manufacturers.
