Residential & Commercial retaining walls
Retaining walls are intended to literally “retain” earth solids from erosion, they are inspired by nature and then designed and engineered to suit exactly your yards needs. Our retaining walls can be constructed to various degrees of specificity, whether you are in the need of a City of Calgary approved 3.5m (or higher) wall or you are simply looking for a smaller aesthetically pleasing wall to help landscape uneven topography, we can offer you the perfect design and construction at an economic and competitive price.
Retaining walls can help you add extra depth and dimension to your yard, making it appear bigger and yielding more usable space for you to enjoy. The walls are constructed with extremely stable materials such as: natural stone, module concrete and concrete, and these materials can withstand almost any weather or other natural elements, while holding and maintaining their incredible strength. Retaining walls create the ideal environment for plants, trees and shrubs due to the proper drainage the structure supports and can not only expand your living space but also increase the overall value of your home when constructed correctly. In order for your wall to maintain its integrity over time, it is very important that the retaining wall is constructed by a contractor and composed of the proper materials, due to the highly specific restraints and remarkable loads that the wall must withstand. If a retaining wall is constructed incorrectly it can be a very pricey fix.

Once we have received the permit we work one on one with an engineer to make sure the wall is perfectly constructed. Large retaining walls can be made up of a variety of different sturdy material including, but not limited, natural stone, module concrete, or poured concrete.
