Retaining Walls

There are many types of retaining walls. In the Pinellas, Pasco, and Hillsborough County area we install 3 types: Rip Rap Concrete, Sheet Pile, or Boulders.

  • Rip Rap Concrete
    80lb bags of specially mixed cement, carefully placed to create a wall. Secured with rebar and tie backs. When complete, provides a beautiful natural wall with a life expectancy of over 40 years.
  • Sheet Pile Walls
    Often seen along tidal water ways. Sheet Pile is driven and/or jetted into the ground and secured with tie back anchors. Wood and concret are commonly used as caps on top of the wall.
  • Boulders (Rip Rap)
    Another type of retaining wall used in tidal areas is limestone boulders. The boulders are set in place to create a barrier between land and water.
  • Gabeons
    Cages filled with stone then placed to create a retaining wall. Often used along rivers, streams, and banks.

We construct our walls using our proven, time-tested designs. You will be provided drawings for your specific project and photos of similar walls.
