Types of Retaining Walls and Landscaping Ideas
Retaining walls are designed for homes built on slopes, to hold the soil from spilling over and giving your yard more useable space. There are a number of criteria which should be considered before installing a retaining wall. In order to ensure proper and secure installation, it’s best to hire an experienced landscaping company, such as Oberndorfer, to design a stable, balanced wall which factors in ground pressure, width and slope grade. There are 5 common types of residential retaining walls:
Cantilever walls are single-layered, built with uniform thickness and a concrete slab base. These tend to be used on steep slopes where there is a significant amount of soil and rock.
Also known as piling retaining wall, this wall works best in softer/sandier soil or in areas which don’t have the space for a large, wide barrier.
The smallest retaining wall, they feature a wide base which gets narrower at the top. This causes it to lean against the earth, effectively holding it back.
Similar to cantilever walls, this type features thin vertical concrete webs installed at strategic intervals along the rear of the wall. This is also used on steep grades.
Similar to sheet pile walls, an anchored wall adds cables for increased strength and stability. Anchored walls tend to be used on steep slopes.
Retaining walls enhance your yard’s overall appearance, while providing needed erosion resistance. With a variety of styles and stones available, contact the Mequon landscapers at Oberndorfer to choose the best structure and style for your backyard.

Natural Flagstone vs. Pavers
Natural flagstone is sedimentary rocks, so they are composed of layers which will break down quickly if a proper sealer isn’t installed correctly. This material comes in natural earthy tones like reds, browns, yellows and blues.
Pavers are made with man-made, manufactured materials. The materials for pavers are available in a wide variety of colors, textures and shapes, giving you more freedom of choice. Some pavers can even be made to look just like natural flagstone. Pavers are generally a more common selection for homeowners, because they can be significantly cheaper and usually have better durability.
Make your backyard an extension of your home. With the variety of tools and materials available, there's no limit to what you can do. We can custom design a patio for your outdoor space or bring your designs to life. From built in fire pits to outdoor kitchens, rely on Oberndorfer's professional hardscaping services.
