Retaining Wall Design & Construction

Landscapes need retaining walls for a variety of reasons. They can create decorative landscape design or a mandatory structure for safety and peace of mind. Many residential properties benefit from having a quality retaining wall that can correct a drainage or grading issue and enhance the beauty of the property. Every property’s terrain offers something that can be developed into a unique design. With a little creative imagination, uneven terrain can add visual interest in the landscape. Changes in grade may be used to delineate utility, recreational and gardening areas and 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

But we specialize in retaining walls over 4 feet that require permitting, engineering and surveying

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. And at the same time, we can restructure 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. They need to be built properly with effective drainage to ensure that they do. Poor workmanship can cause the wall to crack or fall prematurely. A retaining wall acts like a dam. 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.

The following project shows how we removed a wooden wall that had rotted and replaced it with a beautifully landscaped stone wall. The view now is breathtaking.

Whether you want a decorative retaining wall with a complex, intricate design or something simple, we can work with you to give you what you need. If you want to improve the appearance of your yard, take care of an issue with drainage or grading or simply want to do something new to increase the value of your home, call New England Enterprises. We will consult with you on what works best and then implement the project right the first time. Contact us for more information on any of our services or request a consultation to get you started on your project.

Touré Foster and New England Enterprises have been great to work with on multiple projects at our home. Touré and his team did outstanding work that was completed on a timely basis and on budget. Touré carefully planned each drainage and landscape project with us and he provided detailed quotes and cost estimates. In addition,… “Myles and Maureen Gilbert”

Toure from New England Enterprises was incredible. He came out to do an estimate of a drainage problem in our yard. We stressed to him that we were looking for a cost-effective solution and he more than delivered. (He found a way to regrade a small section of the yard to solve the problem, rather than having to regrade most or all of it). The grading work was great and he even put down some grass seeds and loam to help us get some roots down to prevent erosion. His estimate was accurate and, to top everything off, he invited our children to sit in the excavator with him when the job was finished. Very highly recommended.Cate Cioni
