Retaining Walls in Tolland County CT
A retaining wall can add interest to your landscape as well as a practical method of controlling erosion. A sturdy retaining wall can become the centerpiece of your property in the hands of an experienced contractor. The first step in constructing a retaining wall is excavation. Next, we fill in the base with crushed stone which must be compacted for stability. This step is the most time consuming. Drainage is always important when planning a retaining wall, and we use a 4″ perforated pipe behind the wall.
After the base and drainage are all set, you can choose from hundreds of different wall materials. If you prefer a rustic look, field stone or blue stone might be among your top choices. We have many suggestions for you depending on your taste and the size of the project. There are some excellent concrete products for commercial applications that we can recommend. Your wall will be attractive and sturdy, and you will enjoy it for years,
A retaining wall can be installed to provide interest on your property, especially when a small hill or dip on the grounds is present. Because D. Kyle Stearns Contracting offers landscape design services, you can replace a problem spot with a beautiful combination of plants and trees.
