Landscapes that incorporate hardscape features can appear one-dimensional and flat with nothing to separate the different spaces. Incorporating retaining walls into your outdoor living spaces adds a vertical element and a degree of separation to further distinguish the spaces from each other. You can use retaining walls to enclose patios and outdoor kitchens and border walkways, driveways, and gardens.
Pavestone Brick Paving, Inc. is a retaining wall contractor that can design and build retaining walls in Des Plaines, IL, and the surrounding north and northwest Chicago suburbs. We can help incorporate retaining walls into your landscape and outdoor living spaces and ensure that they blend seamlessly with your existing hardscape features. As an authorized Unilock and Rochester contractor, we can offer a full range of products to help you create unique retaining walls.
Adding retaining walls can benefit your outdoor living spaces in the following ways:
- Incorporate vertical elements: The vertical nature of the retaining walls adds dimension and depth to your outdoor living spaces. The walls can also incorporate other vertical features such as pillars, seat walls, islands, lights, and more.
- Define spaces: Enclosing areas of your outdoor living spaces like patios, walkways, and outdoor kitchens with retaining walls creates a degree of separation to further define these spaces.
- Incorporate planters: You can add some green to your outdoor living spaces to soften up the textures by using retaining walls to raise planter beds.
Brick Retaining Wall Installation
Pavestone is a brick retaining wall contractor that can help design and install retaining walls built with Unilock brick pavers. We offer a wide range of brick pavers in different styles, sizes, colors, and textures to create retaining walls that match the aesthetic of your other hardscape features. These brick pavers lock together to create a sturdy structure and they are easy to maintain.
You can choose from classic brick pavers or more modern pavers available in a range of colors to create a unique retaining wall design. You can also incorporate other features like pillars and lights to further enhance the appearance of the walls. Our professionals will help you design your brick retaining walls and decide on pavers and other features to suit your preferences.
Stone Retaining Wall Installation
As a stone retaining wall contractor, Pavestone offers Unilock natural stone slabs that can be used to build retaining walls. These stone slabs come from rock formations around the world, and they are available in many sizes, shapes, colors, and textures. You can choose from a range of natural stones including granite, sandstone, bluestone, and limestone to create a rustic or bold aesthetic.
Choosing natural stone slabs for your retaining walls has the following benefits:
- Durability: Natural stone is highly durable and resistant to chips, cracks, and fading.
- Beauty: The natural stone slabs made from rock formations bring a real natural beauty to your retaining walls.
- Versatility: You can use natural stone slabs for your retaining walls as well as other hardscape features like patios, walkways, and pillars.
- Cost-effective: Certain types of natural stone are cheaper than other materials and they can last for years with little maintenance.
Retaining Wall Design
If you have existing outdoor living spaces and hardscape features with no retaining walls, the design and placement of the walls is important to enhance these spaces. Our experts will help with the design to make the best use of your retaining walls.
We can help with all elements of the design, including the placement of the walls, whether the walls should be straight or curved, the materials for your wall, and any other features to incorporate such as pillars and lights. We will create a 3D model of the retaining wall in full color rendering so you can see what it will look like in your existing hardscape and perfect the design before we start the installation.
Retaining Wall Repair and Maintenance
Retaining walls made from brick pavers and natural stone slabs are highly durable, but they can still experience damage and general wear and tear. We provide repair and maintenance services to keep your retaining walls looking their best, so they last for years.
Our retaining wall maintenance and repair services include the following:
- Repairs, re-sets, and re-level: We can repair or replace brick pavers and natural stone slabs that have been damaged and re-set and re-level out of place pavers and slabs.
- Seal coating: We can apply seal coatings to the brick pavers and natural stone slabs to help prevent dirt buildup, weathering, and stains.
- Cleaning and power washing: Dirty brick pavers and stone slabs can look faded. We will restore their appearance with effective power washing.

It has been a while since I could say I have had a good experience with a contractor and I am more than happy to say working with Sergio at Pavestone was such a pleasure. We were looking for someone to tear out some bushes and install large natural stone pavers. Sergio came to my home and went over all of my options and promptly provided pricing and sketches of ideas for the layout. I met him at the location where they purchase their pavers and he kindly went through all of my color, size and type of options. Once agreed, he sent another confirmation as to what we chose and scheduled a date of install. He called and confirmed as the date got closer and again, promptly showed up with the men doing the installation as promised. The work was done with precision and skill. They cleaned up before they left each day. The completed job was absolutely beautiful! I would highly recommend Sergio and his team to do this work. They guarantee their work too! It is so refreshing to count on someone to provide such great quality and excellent service. Thank you Pavestone.
PaveStone is phenomenal!! We just moved into a new build house and they completely transformed our backyard. Not only is the patio (we’ve been referring to it as our Partio) amazing/epic, but the backyard was seeded when the house was built and they were able to put in sod for us as well. Mario was great to work with and can figure out what will work best for you and your yard. Damian was the on-site lead, he was awesome and so was the whole squad. They delivered a great product and my wife and I couldn’t be happier with the result!
