Do I need a retaining wall if my lot is flat or nearly flat?
Retaining walls do much more than just hold back dirt and create usable space on sloped lots. Retaining walls also provide overflow seating, which is particularly useful in small areas that would otherwise get cluttered up with chairs during a party. They help to define spaces: if you have a large outdoor living space, it can start to feel like an endless, hot expanse if it isn’t broken up with vertical elements. A retaining wall can be enhanced with planters, lights, or even a water feature to create distinct areas within a larger outdoor space. Retaining walls are often used alongside walkways – a brilliant way to hide low voltage lighting without the visual clutter of light posts. They are often used to encircle trees (and provide seating in the shade), border gardens, and soften the transition between the home and the landscape.
Unilock concrete wall products marry the appearance of natural stone with the structural benefits and durability of interlocking concrete units.

This product comes in varying lengths which makes it suitable for straight or curved applications.

Coping adds the finishing touch to your retaining wall: it’s the top layer, or the “cap.” Offering a rustic appearance, Ledgestone is a universal coping system that mimics the look of hand-hewn stone. Its pitched edges are optimized to work interchangeably with any wall system and it comes in two colors – Buff and a mid-tone Grey.
