Extreme Green Lawns & Landscaping offers you a large selection of Block and Brick and stone retaining walls, as well as seat walls. Retaining walls are not only functional but they’re beautiful as you can see in the pictures below.
Brick retaining walls: Bricks that is mortared at the joints is a more expensive retaining wall material. In many cases a concrete block is laid and then the brick is mortared to the cinder block wall. There is an almost endless number of bricks to choose from, in many different patterns and configurations. Our designers at Extreme Green Lawns & Landscaping can help you make just the right choice and a design to work with your existing landscaping.
Concrete block retaining walls: are as versatile as they are durable and beautiful, and come once again in endless patterns and designs.
Many concrete blocks for retaining walls are designed for strength. Our block masons stack blocks on top of one another and they secure them with pins or interlocking edges. Most blocks are designed to be set on a gravel base, allowing them to withstand ground movement. Then drainage is placed behind the wall.
In Knoxville we usually use heavy-duty blocks for walls up to 30 ft. They weigh around 50 to 75 lbs and these blocks when used in retaining walls is a job for an experienced block mason with a crew of strong men to assist him. Large retaining walls involve the excavating and moving of tons of soil and setting the block in place. Walls that are over 6 feet must be designed by an engineer.
Dry stack Stone retaining walls: There are many types of natural stones to choose from. Fieldstone usually comes in three sizes and the choice would be determined by the height of the landscape retaining walls. Smaller walls look better with the smaller stones, and taller walls look better with the larger stones. Also used for bed edging around you landscape.
- Why Use Pavers?
Pavers come in a wide range of colors and textures which offers a multitude of possibilities to customize your project.
Pavers are manufactured to the highest standards per American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM). They have an average psi of at least 8,000 and which is approximately four times stronger than concrete and ten to twenty times stronger than asphalt.
Pavers are designed to limit moisture absorption, which could cause traditional paving methods to lift and crack. Therefore, frost damage is virtually non-existent as the joints between the pavers absorb the damaging powers of frost by flexing and not cracking.
Pavers make maintenance of underground utilities easier. Pavers can be pulled up for easy access to whatever utilities are underneath and the same pavers can be replaced which can save thousands in long term repair costs and you don’t have the unsightly patch work that can be seen in other pavements.
