Retaining Wall Design & Construction

Retaining walls are needed for a variety of reasons including decorative landscape design or as a mandatory structure for safety and peace of mind. Many residential properties would benefit from having a quality retaining wall built to not only correct a drainage or grading issue, but to enhance the beauty of the property. Every property’s terrain offers something that can be developed into a unique design. Uneven terrain can add visual interest and variety in the landscape if handled properly. Changes in grade may be used to delineate utility, recreational and gardening areas, as well as to provide proper surface drainage. Color and shape of rock used should be carefully incorporated to unify a design with the overall landscape.

We can construct retaining walls of all kinds

From dry stone stacks and boulders to traditional ground face concrete blocks, we can produce the right retaining wall for both your ascetics and structural needs. Our machinery allows us to dig deep and provide solid foundations, while at the same time restructuring the lands to suit your needs. If you’ve got a vision for how you want to landscape with a retaining wall, we’ve got the tools to make it happen; we’ve also got the design and planning if you don’t know where to start.

A properly constructed wall should last a lifetime, but they need to be built properly with effective drainage to ensure that they do. Incorrect development can cause the wall to crack or fall prematurely. A retaining wall acts like a dam and for it to function properly and remain resilient, water has to be able to drain out from behind the wall, otherwise hydraulic pressure builds up behind it and eventually, especially in New England with the drastic temperature changes from season to season, the wall starts to fail.

I had a drainage problem in the front of my house. I called several other companies to get assistance in fixing my problem. Some never returned my call and the one that did never kept an appointment. Eventually he too never returned my calls. I saw New England Enterprises website in a google search and gave them a call. They returned my first phone call within one day. They made an appointment to view the job 3 days later and kept the appointment. They gave me a fair price and a firm date as to when the work would start. They did superb work and solved my problem. New England Enterprises was a great company to do business and I would highly recommend them. They will be the only company I call if I need any future work.Bob Wood (Marlboro)Greg Wood
