When it comes to retaining walls, you’ve got a lot of options to choose between. From natural stone to complete engineered concrete systems, the options are nearly endless, and choosing the right one for you will depend on several factors.

The first factor is the aesthetic style or form factor. The stone or concrete you choose to use should be in line with your existing aesthetic decisions. It should either add another point of interest to your home with a distinguishing color or interesting texture, or it should match the kind of the stone your home’s exterior already incorporates. Aesthetics are an important consideration because they help create a feeling about a place, and since this is your home, a retaining wall should help to make you proud every time you look at it.

The second and equally important factor is determining who is going to install your new retaining wall.
