Considering having a retaining wall installed in the tri state area?

The terrain of Long Island’s Suffolk and Nassau counties, as well as New Jersey and Connecticut lends itself to these long-lasting, natural looking stone and rock outcroppings. Our experts at Island Block will walk you through the process and help you decide on a product and design that best meets the needs of your family or business in addition to determining what will work best with the soil and land.

There are several things you should keep in mind when deciding what type of wall you would like to have installed:

  • Is the soil on the property sandy, muddy or clay-like in consistency? We can help you determine if the soil drains well and figure out the type of wall that’s most appropriate for your project.
  • Is the wall going to be responsible for holding a garden or landscaping, or will it serve to define a space or surround a pool? It’s important to figure out the wall’s purpose in order to determine what type of product is best for the space.
  • Will the wall be used for patio seating? If so, would you like a back rest or bench seating?
