Retaining Wall Material: You’ve Got Options! Cumming, GA
landscaped yard with a manicured lawn and hardscapes

Retaining walls are an excellent way to level a sloped yard and prevent erosion, but they don’t have to be an eyesore. In fact, depending on the material you use to build your retaining wall, it can be an attractive hardscape that blend with your overall landscape design or compliments the style of your home. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we encourage clients to know their options when it comes to designing and building their retaining wall.

When choosing a material for your wall, you’ll need to consider the following:

  • Materials and style already used on the outside of your home or other hardscapes on your property to compliment aesthetics
  • Your climate and need for durability
  • Cost per square foot to accommodate your budget
  • Safety of the material if you have small children
  • Need for functionality beyond erosion control (more seating?)
  • The location, size and/or height of your wall

Types of Retaining Wall Materials

So what exactly are your options when learning that you need to build a retaining wall on your property? You may be surprised at the wide variety of materials that can be used, including the following:

  • Poured Concrete
  • Dry Stone/Boulder
  • Wood
  • Gabion
  • Brick
  • Stone Veneer

As with any other hardscape construction, there are pros and cons to each material used in building a retaining wall. At Pannone’s Lawn Pros & Landscaping, we are happy to discuss the material that best meets your needs, budget and style. Our team can also repair or replace existing retaining walls to maintain your landscaping design. We promise to use quality materials for all our hardscape projects because we stand behind our work.

What our clients say about us

Katherine M.

Would give 10 stars if I could. Pannone Landscaping exceeded our expectations and was such a pleasure to work with! Brad set reasonable expectations for the timing of the work (leveling, drainage system, fire pit, and sodding), and was the best priced quote with quality material and labor. We cannot speak highly enough of Brad and his crew, from their professionalism to expert advice to skilled work! Our yard went from ugly mud pit to lush golf course. Looking forward to working with Pannone and his team again!

Alex D.

Brad and his team did a wonderful job for us! Our backyard was overgrown and a mess after we moved in. Brad helped us come up with a plan to turn it around that would work for our family. He was quick to respond, reasonable priced, and our yard looks fantastic. We’ve gotten so many compliments. Hope to work with him again in the future and would highly recommend him to anyone that needs some landscaping help!

Ashley W.

We had the best experience working with Pannone's Lawn Pros & Landscaping! Brad guided us on every aspect of our exterior renovation from hardscapes to the annual color. He worked to find exactly what we were looking for even when items were difficult to find. We greatly appreciate his responsiveness, honest guidance and professionalism throughout the entire project. Thank you Brad!!
