Retaining walls are structures that define backyard spaces, plantings, or sloped areas. These stacked, interlocking bricks hold back soil and add a clean border. You can choose from a variety of materials to create the yard look you dream about, whether it be concrete blocks, rocks, boulders, poured concrete material, or wood.
Depending on the materials used and the soil, retaining walls will outlast most other home accents such as fencing. Many retaining walls can last up to 100 years.
