Retaining Walls in Mississauga, Oakville and the Surrounding Areas
Beautiful and Functional Elements of Your Landscape
Retaining walls are used to support soil so that it can be kept at a different level on each side of the wall. They’re ideal for steeply sloped areas that would otherwise suffer erosion or collapse. A retaining wall can manage changes in ground elevation in an attractive way, creating multiple levels and usable, flat areas in an otherwise sloped yard. Retaining walls can also be used to create other attractive and unique landscape features.
Van Beek’s offers a wide variety of materials for creating your perfect landscape.
Natural Stone or Interlocking Stone for Strong, Beautiful Retaining Walls
Using natural stone for a retaining wall results in a landscape feature with an organic and rustic appeal. The variety of shapes and colours of natural stone can make the wall blend beautifully with its natural setting. Natural stone retaining walls should be built by a skilled and experienced professional who knows how to fit the stones together properly so that the joints are solid. Natural stone walls are durable and low-maintenance.
Interlocking stone is extremely durable, easy to assemble, and requires no mortar. Certain types of interlocking stone can handle extreme pressure and can be built very high while still retaining its strength. These retaining wall blocks handle turns, corners, and curves easily, allowing for design flexibility to fit any landscaping project. Interlocking stone is also available in a very wide range of styles, colours, and textures, and it’s often backed by a long, or even lifetime, guarantee.

Creative Uses of Retaining Walls
Stone retaining walls can do more than just manage slopes. They can be used to create beautiful raised planting beds and unique outdoor kitchen areas and to mark the edges of patios. Grill islands, BBQ areas, and outdoor counters can be built with retaining wall bricks, and low walls can be used to define or separate spaces from the rest of your landscape. A retaining wall can be enhanced with matching steps made out of the same stone.
