Austin Retaining Walls
One of the most versitile landscape design elements is the retaining wall. Austin retaining walls not only serve a specific function for terracing and creating multi-level gardens while holding landscaping in place, but they can function as a beautiful addition to any landscape design that adds depth to the overall picture of your landscape.
Our Austin Turf Experts can make retaining walls and concrete landscaping walls virtually anywhere an attractive, durable surface is required. We use products that perform in a wide variety of applications. Ranging from staining and sealing existing slabs, which can greatly enhance plain concrete floors, driveways, patios and garage floors; to repairing and resurfacing damaged slabs or using overlays and microtoppings to create surfaces that have color and texture not possible with any other material.
Concrete retaining walls can be installed over many existing surfaces without a significant increase in thickness or weight. Some of these surfaces include existing concrete, existing ceramic or natural tile, gypcrete, plywood, hardibacker, vertical sheetrock, vertical concrete (solid or concrete block) and more. Amazing design options are possible through the use of stencils, sawcuts, sandblasting, engraving, textured overlays and the latest coloring techniques, there are no limits.
Concrete landscaping walls are very low maintenance. All that is required is routine powerwashing or pressure cleaning, or the occasional sweeping to maintain a beautiful concrete retaining wall. For high traffic areas such as those in commercial and retail settings, the concrete walls may require a maintenance program that includes regular machine cleaning and reapplication of any finish may be necessary.
There are also many other types of materials available for building attractive Austin retaining walls. While these materials may be more expensive than concrete, they still offer a great source of value for your residential or commercial property. Other landscaping wall materials often include natural stone, brick, and various types of pavers that can be stacked in order to create low to medium high retaining walls in Austin, TX.
