Having a retaining wall in your backyard may not be ideal, but it doesn’t have to sabotage your outdoor space or decrease the value of your home. In fact, when designed and installed properly, your retaining wall can not only save your property from erosion but also add visual and functional appeal. At Everlast Lawns & Landscaping, we offer a variety of materials, sizes and styles when it comes to retaining walls. Our quality services can range from a three-foot natural stone retaining wall to a twelve-foot wall made of timbers.

- Exposed tree roots
- Exposed rocks
- Bald spots (no plant or grass growth)
- Migrating mulch
- Clumps of soil, grass and debris at bottom of slope
