Retaining Walls

Why a Retaining Wall

When a landscape is being designed, one of the first things that have to be planned is the finished grade of the land. The ground needs to be leveled well in areas where features such as an outdoor kitchen, patio, deck, driveway or walkways have to be installed. Aside from this, care has to be taken that the grading gradually slopes towards the outside of your property- this helps keep the water away from the foundation of your house.

If there is excessive sloping of  land on your property and the area has to be excavated and leveled to make space for these installations, the exposed rock and soil need to be supported; this is where retaining walls are built.

We at Piccoli Contracting provide excellent retaining wall installation services to customers in and around Bergen and Passaic County.

Retaining Wall Plans

When we handle retaining wall construction for you, we take a number of factors into consideration such as:

  • The location at which the retaining wall has to be built.
  • The size, length and height of the wall.
  • What is the purpose of the wall is.
  • Whether natural stone, concrete, CMUs or retaining wall blocks have to be used.
  • Whether you want any built-in seating included.
  • If in-wall landscape lighting will be added.

Retaining Wall Structure

The primary objective of having retaining walls built on your property is that your landscape gets the support it needs. These are specially-engineered walls and we have expert designers on board that plan the walls to perfection.

We focus on ensuring that the design of the walls and the materials used in the workflow with the design concept in the rest of the landscape. The walls we construct are made using top-of-the-line materials.

Retaining Wall Design

We have years of experience and know exactly how these walls should be designed and built. If you choose a retaining wall design that is made of concrete, and feel that the surface looks too plain or boring, we can install stone or brick veneer on the surfaces to enhance the appearance of the walls.

In some cases, retaining walls may be built only to define spaces in a landscape and may also become peripheral walls for outdoor kitchens, patios and deck spaces. Regardless of whether you want one or more retaining walls built on your property, we can handle it all.
