We install retaining walls for homes and businesses throughout the areas of Columbia, Millstadt, Waterloo, and other surrounding Illinois cities.


When Properties Need Retaining Walls

Retaining walls are usually installed whenever a property is having issues with erosion. The retaining wall serves to prevent soil from washing away in rainwater. When your property has hills or slopes, erosion often happens.

Protecting your investment in your lawn and in your home is important. If you’ve spent money on seeding, fertilization, or weed control, but your soil keeps eroding, then you are losing money each time it rains. Installing a retaining wall ensures that the soil stays in place.

Not only can you lose valuable soil, your foundation can also be affected if there is a lot of erosion on your property. If enough soil erodes, you may end up with a hefty bill for fixing foundational issues.

These walls can also be used to redirect water flow. If your property wasn’t properly leveled or graded before, then it’s possible that you have areas within your property where water pools when it rains. Retaining walls can help with that and level off these areas of your yard.

We can also construct seating walls to add natural seating space to your outdoor living area.


Retaining Walls Can Also Serve a Decorative Purpose

Retaining walls can also serve as raised planter beds such as this one in Millstadt, IL.

At Linnemann Lawn Care & Landscaping, we also build smaller retaining walls or garden walls, to help create raised landscaping beds. These increase the aesthetics of your property and add focal points to your yard.


Common Materials Used for Retaining Walls

Retaining wall materials have to be durable and long-lasting in order for the walls to be effective. That’s why we use materials such as Windsor stones or Hampton stones in 4-inch or 6-inch wall blocks to build retaining walls and garden walls.

Hampton stones have rounded edges that are great for creating walls with curves or straight walls and can also work for garden walls. Windsor stones have a timeless look to them and are great for garden walls or smaller height retaining walls.
