Retaining walls can be both functional and provide a unique visual element to your landscape design. A retaining wall can become a dramatic backdrop for water features, create a unique flower bed or create privacy from neighbours. There is no limit to what can be done with your retaining wall project. There are many material and installation options for retaining walls, each has its place:
• Wood timber walls
• Concrete retaining walls
• Brick retaining walls
• Natural Stone block retaining walls
• Armour stone retaining walls
Typically, retaining walls are quite costly to install and replace making it important to ensure that it is designed and built well. However, do not let aesthetics be the only deciding factors. The material quality and structural integrity of your retaining wall is crucial to safety and durability. Careful planning and quality craftsmanship ensure that the final results are not only stunning, but installed correctly for durability and longevity in the years to come. We know a retaining wall needs to last, and a well-defined and properly executed design makes all the difference. Frontiers Landscape has the experience and expertise to ensure a job well done.

A water feature can play an important role in creating your personalized backyard retreat. The white noise created by the sound of running water can effectively mask unwanted urban noise and creates an environment which fosters relaxation. The same water feature can attract a variety of birds and butterflies as well as provide a visual focal point in your personal landscape. Let Frontiers Landscape help you unwind in your personal backyard oasis.
