Functional & Decorative Retaining Walls
A sturdy concrete block retaining wall, typically established at the top of steep hills, will keep erosion in check. It can also act as a solid divider between two areas of property to reduce the need for landscaping efforts. The retaining wall should be designed like a solid divider; once it is put in place, it will last many years without requiring any repairs or maintenance.
If you want to increase the value of your home, retaining walls is an affordable way to do it. They can also be customized in a number of ways with different colors, textures, or designs.

Brick retaining wall constructions currently fall into two categories that often look nearly identical. It is the material and method of construction that makes the difference to the homeowner. When it comes to saving money on home building, these two types are virtually indistinguishable for most people.
A retaining wall made of brick is called a “cavity wall”, which consists of two standard brick walls just inches apart that share the same footing. Amid them are steel bars that are present between them, which are subsequently filled with grout or concrete to make it solid above them. They have little structural integrity before they are made COMPLETELY watertight with bricks on the ground reaching up the entire length of all four sides of the wall. This means brick is needed from within to above in both rows on top of the grounded wall, typically increasing the cost due to materials and labor.
Block Core Wall
Today this method is more common since the invention of the concrete masonry unit (CMU). The wall consists of CMU blocks which compress the steel within its cells. The concrete is poured into the openings to envelop it, creating a structural mass similar to brick, with less bricks required to be laid on it than an ordinary cavity wall.
Rock and Boulder
Professional stone-wall builders have been doing this for centuries. Ireland is a great example of how it can look. These days, if you’re ambitious and don’t mind a bit of set-up, we could create these walls in your own garden — the dry wall technique — by using either many small natural stones and aggregate (e.g., gravel) or bigger boulders materials like granite mixed up with some moss, compost or mulch as your foundation/matrix to “pave” your wall surface.
Throughout New England, dry stone walls of colonial times are still abundant in the countryside, even though traditional mortar-less dry wall construction has mostly disappeared. Dry stone walls are not just a building trade; they are also an interesting historical craft. People have realized that to maintain the dry wall, the interior water must be removed or frozen before any square inch can become compromised. This type of construction is more difficult than it may seeming because freeze-thaw cycles can ruin its structure.
Another method of using natural dry stone is to place boulders to hold back the ground, but it should not be considered as solid as a more traditional retaining wall.
Concrete blocks are widely available and easy to work with, making them the most important structural component in retaining walls. Over time they have evolved into more aesthetically appealing split face units that provide both physical structural stability and aesthetics.
