Retaining walls are everywhere in the Pittsburgh region. They hold back all the hills and slopes on our property to create flat areas for parking, playing, building, and outdoor enjoyable spaces. They can also be decorative in design and style with natural stone, a simple segmental wall system, and even contemporary styling. Plants, mulch, and boulders can also add to the aesthetics of the retaining wall and make it a beautiful focal point within the landscape of your home or business.
There’s always more than meets the eye when it comes to the design and building of the correct retaining wall for your home or business. Schellhaas Landscape Construction takes a lot of aspects into consideration when planning for a retaining wall design and build.
- the slope or grade of the hillside that is being retained
- surface water runoff and hydrostatic pressure
- soil load stability
- local building codes
- engineered plans and drawings
We also have the experience and knowledge of working closely with an engineer when required by local building codes.
Schellhaas Landscape Construction goes above and beyond industry standards when installing all of its retaining walls. We dig deep to install all the proper compatible stone footing for the base of the wall. We also install the proper hillside stabilization, backfill stabilization, and drainage behind every wall to keep it dry and stable for a very long time.
