Specialty Timber Walls

We design and install timber retaining walls that offer a variety of solutions to grade changes while enhancing the beauty of your landscaping. Here in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, steeply sloped lots are a common design challenge when it comes to space planning for landscaping. A timber retention wall can increase the useable area of your property, giving you more room to enjoy your lawn or garden.

Timber retaining walls are also useful in reducing erosion and maintaining the natural landscape. By creating shorter tiers on a sloped surface, rain water runoff is slowed down substantially. This allows the water to soak into the ground and make its way downhill, rather than allowing a cascade of surface water that strips topsoil, erodes the hillside, and puts trees at risk. Whispering Springs can help you evaluate your property to determine the best placement and design for your retaining wall.
