retaining walls

Many homeowners think strategically when improving their property. The right upgrades will last a long time and increase the property’s value. More equity in the home increases their borrowing power and can pay off in the future if they choose to sell the house. One property upgrade homeowners should consider is retaining walls as part of their landscaping.

Flood Control

Trees and shrubs with deep roots help fix the soil in place and prevent soil erosion by wind or water. Without these elements, soil erosion happens faster, and it can take time for plants to grow to a size large enough to be effective against it. A retaining wall can prevent soil from breaking down, protecting your home’s foundation and other structures. Well-designed retaining walls control water drainage, especially during floods, further protecting the ground.

Aesthetic Appeal

There’s no denying the beauty of a well-placed retaining wall as part of a home’s larger landscaping design. They make for a great focal point or can accentuate part of the home that needs more visual impact. Either way, these walls are an excellent design element when used correctly.

Add Functional Space

If your lawn has a steep slope, making it less functional, a retaining wall can create a flatter surface. This is one of the most common reasons homeowners consider retaining walls when choosing a new landscaping design for their property.

Create Property Boundaries

There’s nothing more definite when separating two properties than a wall. A stone one is more permanent, requires less maintenance than a wood or metal fence and is much harder to move. Once a stone retaining wall has been installed along a property line, it creates a physical, visual boundary.

Add Structural Support

One or more stone retaining walls can help support the property, not just from soil erosion but also from landslides, earthquakes, floods and other unexpected natural disasters. No one can predict when these things might happen or how severe they might be. However, having the support of retaining walls in the right places may prove beneficial during some events.

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
