The original wooden retaining wall on the side of this Evans property was built when the house was built in 1998. The wall served to prevent slow erosion as well as wash out from rain storms. The homeowners contacted Between the Edges when the wooden retaining wall began to rot and collapse. The Between the Edges team designed a stone retaining wall to replace the failing structure and showcase the landscaping skills of its homeowners, one of whom is a master gardener. The new stone retaining wall features a unique wave pattern, which creates visual interest and blends in with the natural surroundings.

If there is a steep grade separating your house from your neighbor’s property, a retaining wall installation provides beneficial protection against erosion and an aesthetically-appealing visual delineation between lots. If you have questions about retaining walls, contact Between the Edges today.
