Take Control Of Your Yard And Get More Usable Space

The main role of a retaining wall is to hold soil in place to prevent erosion and flooding. Built right, it can also add definition, beauty, and style to your yard design.

Retaining walls also help to even out your backyard slopes so that you can have more usable space to enjoy. Create new areas for the kids to play, or design your dream sunken patio or terraced garden. You could even create a beautiful driveway with built-in lighting to enhance your front lawn.

Here are the most common signs you may need a retaining wall:

High Functionality And Low Maintenance

No one wants to see a mud pit in their backyard. Soil erosion and steep slopes can cause serious water damage to your whole property.

A solid retaining wall battles gravity by keeping water away from your beautiful lawn, and requires very little maintenance.

We can help you get a small retaining wall that creates extra sitting space and room for a few plants. Or build a tall enclosure that secures your property and levels your backyard. We’ll bring our knowledge and expertise to build you a retaining wall that’s made to last.

Jason and his team overhauled my townhome patio from solid pebble beds to a beautiful river bed, trellises and to lush mulched beds of grasses.

I am so happy in my new oasis. While Jason was quick to install when everything was in stock, I started up with him during the busy season. His company is so good, you must have a bit of patience during the budding spring.

He is worth it!!

We hired Dogwood Landscaping a few years ago to install a paver stone walkway and address a drainage issue.

We were so happy with the results that we brought them back to address the builder-grade landscaping that has been an eyesore since we first moved in. We are so happy that we brought the Dogwood team into our homes because not only do we get the best results, we get the best care that we could expect and that is why we will continue to use them for all future projects.

Jason and his crew know their stuff but also respect your ideas and together they create a finished product that will make your neighbors jealous. We have had numerous neighbors stop by to compliment our walkway and new front yard and we tell them all the same thing…”You need to call Dogwood!”

I reached out to Jason Cory at Dogwood Landscaping based on a recommendation from one of my neighbors.

We were looking to have a retainer wall built/added to our backyard to help level it off. Jason promptly came out and reviewed my project needs with us. He was very thorough with his assessment, and quickly provided a detailed proposal.

After also meeting with 3 other companies, we chose to go with Dogwood Landscaping. We were impressed with the work they had done for others, as well as their stellar industry certifications and manufacturer recommendations.

The installation of the retaining wall was completed as scheduled. Throughout the build, Dogwood’s team was courteous, hardworking, and respectful of our property.

I would highly recommend Dogwood Landscaping, and I personally plan on using them for future projects.
