Retaining walls are essential structures. They keep your landscape in place and looking pretty.
Retaining walls are usually thought of as utilitarian and for merely holding back soil. But you can use them to create beautiful outdoor living spaces and incorporate multi-use spaces, can be used as a noise barrier and small retaining wall ideas often feature a place for flowerbeds or lawns. Retaining Walls are the structure used to retain soil, rock or other materials in a vertical condition. Hence they provide a lateral support to vertical slopes of soil that would otherwise collapse into a more natural shape.
Make a Creative Design
Retaining walls don’t have to be perfectly straight. Add a curve to dress up a boring straight wall and to add a little more texture to your landscape. You can use a garden hose or large rope to set the layout of the curve, then use a shovel to cut through the soil to follow the curve.

Retaining wall blocks made of natural stone or boulder walls are the most expensive wall material and require the greatest amount of labour but the stylish and unique look of the wall is difficult to achieve with any other material. The blocks can be made of granite, sandstone or limestone. Granite is the hardest stone, which is used in landscaping. Its amazing colours vary between grey, black, crimson to yellow, blue and white, and reveal their beauty especially when wet. Granite stones are available in certain standard sizes. Natural stone retaining wall blocks are offered in regular or irregular shapes and are versatile as they are suitable for any type of design.

What Our Customers Say
Abel Landscapes were absolutely brilliant from start to finish. We were given advice by Darren Moss on the best layout for our garden, which included plans for areas we had not even considered. The workforce were so professional and never stopped working for a minute. They cleared up after themselves and left everywhere spick and span. I would thoroughly recommend them.Dianne YoungSee The Project
