Retaining & Garden Walls Landscaping | Earthscapes

Landscaping Portfolio – Retaining and Garden Walls

Install a retaining wall as a backstop, and you can literally carve out functional outdoor spaces where once there were only precarious slopes. More than just problem solving, retaining walls also have a sculptural quality that adds definition to the landscape, and they can be made from various materials to create different styles. There are multiple types of material to choose from: Mortarless Block, Concrete Masonry Block and Poured-in-Place concrete.

Types of Retaining and Garden Walls Landscaping

Mortarless Block Retaining Walls

Allan Block – These mortarless retaining wall products cover most of your landscape design and engineering needs. The Allan Block’s built-in features allow retaining walls to be easily engineered and easily built.

Allan Block Europa Collection – Is a mortarless retaining wall system that adds character and dimension to your landscape. A combination of various shapes and sizes can be used to create the look of an old European stone wall.

Concrete Masonry Block

Precision Concrete Masonry Blocks – Are the most widely used and are typically used if there is going to be a stucco or stone face finish. Precision Blocks have square edges and a smooth texture.

Burnished Blocks – Are used to create a finish similar to polished stone and are a lower cost alternative.

Split-Face Blocks – Provide an attractive alternative to standard precision blocks. Their rugged texture reveal natural aggregates to create an appealing finish.

Slump Blocks – Are intentionally manufactured to mimic the appearance of old adobe bricks.

Poured-In-Place Concrete Walls

Poured-in-place concrete walls are a good alternative for areas that have limited access for transporting materials.

Stucco or Stone Facing

Both Precison Blocks or Poured-In-Place Concrete can have these custom finishes. Stucco and stone facing can be coordinated to match or complement existing finishes. Natural Stone, Cultured Stone and Stone Veneer can be used for the stone facing finish.

Rock and Boulders

For a natural look, boulders can be used for low walls in non-structural situations. Boulders can also be a nice accent in a natural looking landscape.


Wood, with its natural feel, is a versatile and lower cost alternative.
