Unique Options for Retaining Wall Coping in Your Toronto Landscape
Toronto is a city brimming with beautiful architecture, including residential properties lush with landscaping and style. Retaining wall finishes and coping can further enhance your landscape and speak volumes about your taste and style, no matter the type of atmosphere you’d like to set. As well as providing a refined finish, coping plays a role in ensuring protection for the top surface of your wall and can contribute to a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere when doubling as additional seating.

When used in conjunction with the Siena Stone wall system, the flat, heavyweight blocks ensure extreme load bearing capability for tiered retaining walls and large scale projects.

With lifetime durability guaranteed, your retaining walls are sure to be timeless in both aesthetic and longevity. Multiple color options in this range ensure a precise match for any project.

For Other Coping Needs
Coping isn’t just required on retaining walls, but can benefit a staircase or pool surround in all the same ways. It provides a protective ledge against sharp edges, and caps the surface to protect against weather and other beatings. For a uniform look, ensure that matching coping is used for all necessary vertical features.
For a sleek capping for surfaces like pool walls, steps, and pillars, choose a coping that has a smooth, rounded edge and durability to withstand harsh conditions.
