A retaining wall in front of the house

While retaining walls often have a negative connotation, they don’t have to be unsightly and they can certainly serve a very important purpose of protecting your landscape. Retaining walls come in various sizes and materials. Regardless of whether you have a three-foot natural stone retaining wall or a twelve foot wall made of timbers, all retaining walls can help manage erosion and water runoff that could otherwise damage your property or your home.

Signs You Have an Erosion Problem

Erosion occurs when there is a steep hill on your property or where there is excess water runoff. Drainage issues often develop over time. You can tell if you have erosion by looking for the following signs in your yard:

  • Exposed tree roots
  • Exposed rocks
  • Bald spots (no plant or grass growth)
  • Migrating mulch
  • Clumps of soil, grass and debris at bottom of slope

What Can a Retaining Wall Offer?

Retaining walls don’t have to be an eyesore to your property. In fact, they can be a welcome addition to your landscape design and beauty. Retaining walls can be constructed in a variety of shapes and materials including timber walls, interlocking blocks, poured concrete or natural stone.

A well-designed and constructed retaining wall can provide the following benefits:

  • Create more level space to utilize and enjoy
  • Manage water runoff from rainfall
  • Provide additional seating for your family and guests
  • Protect flowers, trees, plants and other landscaping elements from erosion
  • Protect your house foundation from drainage issues

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
