Retaining Walls the Bay Area, CA

Proudly Serving Homeowners Throughout Castro Valley & San Jose 

If you’re a homeowner battling erosion, a finely crafted retaining wall could be the answer to your problems.

Erosion does not have to spell the end of your yard. Vigorous Landscaping 's retaining walls have helped a number of different residents add a bit extra to their outside area; whether or not the decision is prompted by a need to conserve their yard's structural integrity or just add a little bit of flair.

When properly constructed, a well-made retaining wall is a durable and aesthetically pleasing addition to many gardens and yards. Whether you are looking to preserve the integrity of your landscape or put in a decorative feature, Vigorous Landscaping has what you are looking for.

Why Get a Retaining Wall?

There are a few distinct reasons why homeowners may choose to get a retaining wall. Erosion is often a major deciding factor, as a wall can stop soil movement in its own path. If you live on a particularly steep plot of property, or have been noticing soil creep lately, a retaining wall might be a fantastic decision.

The other primary reason is purely decorative; there are a couple of distinct materials we usually use to build the wall, giving you plenty of opportunities to personalize your new wall, creating something that is as beautiful as it is useful.

Which Wall is Right For You?

Depending on what you’re looking for, there are a few different types of retaining walls to choose from.

Wood is the most inexpensive option, so if you're on a budget this is likely the very best material for you. It is necessary to keep in mind that while its initial price tag is likely lower than for other substances, the lifespan can also be significantly shorter; so you should factor in maintenance and replacement costs when deciding whether or not going with timber is the right decision.

For a more resilient wall, mortar is a great option. In this case, materials such as brick or stone are fused together, making a structure that stands up to years of use. While a bit pricier, mortared walls are long-lasting and, because of the multitude of substances readily available, they offer countless opportunities for customization.

Segmented retaining walls are a third option provided by Vigorous Landscaping. This type of wall utilizes bricks which are made to fit together like puzzle pieces. Midway between the price of a wooden wall and a mortared one, segmented retaining walls offer the sturdiness of a more solid wall, while still being budget-friendly.
