What Are Retaining Walls and Why Do You Need Them?
A retaining wall is a specially engineered structure designed to hold back soil and prevent erosion, creating level surfaces on sloped terrains. These walls are typically constructed using various materials like concrete blocks, natural stone, or wood, depending on your preference and the specific requirements of your landscape.
At Land Designs By Colton, we don’t let standing water, erosion, soggy lawns, or basement flooding compromise the beauty and functionality of your property. Contact us to explore effective solutions that will keep your landscape in balance and protect your investment.
Types of Retaining Walls and Their Ideal Applications
Gravity Retaining Walls
Gravity retaining walls are ideal for low to medium-height applications where stability and strength are crucial. They work best in areas with a gentle slope and where soil erosion is a concern.
How They Work:
These walls rely on their sheer weight and mass to resist the pressure the retained soil exerts. They are constructed using heavy materials like concrete or natural stone, allowing them to counteract lateral forces naturally.
Cantilever Retaining Walls
Cantilever retaining walls are a versatile option suitable for various heights. They are excellent for projects with limited space, making them popular in urban environments.
How They Work:
These walls have a reinforced concrete base that extends below the retained soil. The extended base acts as a lever, enabling the wall to resist pressure from the soil and provide stability.
Embedded Retaining Walls
Embedded retaining walls are perfect for landscapes where a seamless integration with the surroundings is desired. They are excellent for sloped terrains and sites with limited space.
How They Work:
These walls are built with part of the wall below ground level, providing additional support and anchoring the wall in place. They can be constructed using various materials, including concrete, wood, or segmental blocks.
Reinforced Soil Retaining Walls
Reinforced soil retaining walls are an excellent option for projects where cost-effectiveness and efficiency are key factors. They are often used for highway embankments and larger-scale applications.
How They Work:
These walls use reinforcing elements, such as geogrids or geotextiles, to strengthen the soil and provide lateral support. The reinforcing materials increase the soil's bearing capacity, allowing for steeper slopes.

Why Colorado Homeowners Recommend Us
I’ve been very happy working with Jonathan so far.
He recently installed an irrigation system and sod for me. The work was well done and he and his team were easy to communicate with and very helpful.
Looking forward to continuing to work with him as I finish my yard.
It was great working with Jon, Flavia, and the team. Jon provided a reasonably priced quote, made some recommendations, and completed the project in a timely manner.
I look forward to working with Land Designs by Colton again in the near future.
Jonathon and his crew were excellent. They are experienced, professional and reasonably priced. They started on time and finished on time.
They did design, demolition and installation of both hardscape and sod at our property as well as install a new fence around it. They also repaired an old sprinkler system with new equipment. Jonathon is friendly and approachable and worked with us to adjust our budget during the process. We highly recommend!
