Retaining walls represent an exciting, versatile way to transform the look of any outdoor living space. By introducing vertical elements on your property, you can enhance the appearance and functionality of various areas of your yard. Retaining walls effortlessly provide necessary support while also introducing beauty and distinction – adding definition to patio edges, outdoor kitchens, walkways, driveways, or gardens. They are a great way to create a more vibrant look while also adding structure, which will keep unsightly slopes and hills in check. With just one simple element, it’s easy to improve the aesthetics and usefulness of any landscape.

Stone Retaining Wall Installation
If you are looking for a durable and distinct look for your next landscaping project, the natural stone slabs provided by Pavestone may be just what you need. Our stones are carefully selected from natural rock formations found all over the world in virtually every size, shape, color, and texture you can imagine. You can opt for a more classic granite or limestone to get that rustic look and feel or go for something flashier like sandstone or bluestone to make a bolder impression. In either case, Pavestone’s natural stone slabs provide you with the perfect solution for your landscaping needs.
Choosing natural stone slabs for your retaining walls has the following benefits:
- Durability: Natural stone’s strength and durability make it a long-lasting choice, boasting resistance to chips, cracks, and fading – withstanding the test of time.
- Beauty: Natural stone slabs lend a unique, earthy charm to your retaining walls.
- Versatility: Natural stone slabs can be used to construct beautiful retaining walls and hardscape features like patios, walkways, or pillars.
- Cost-effective: Natural stone proves to be a cost-effective and long-term building solution, requiring minimal upkeep for years of high performance.

What’s more, we make use of cutting-edge technology and create a full-color 3D rendering model that will allow you to see how the wall will look relative to your existing hardscape before any physical installation begins. With Pavestone, you can have confidence in both design aesthetics and quality.

We just had our old concrete patio replaced with a beautiful paver patio and we LOVE it! We used Mario who was wonderful, and I would highly recommend! He was extremely responsive to our phone calls and questions and everyone we worked with was extremely professional. Mario sat with me for over an hour as we made our decision on the perfect stones to match our yard and the siding and roof, and when it came time to do the installation, the staff couldn’t have been nicer and efficient! We love our patio so much and had such a great experience that we want to add on a fire pit, seating area, and built in grill for next year!
Ricky and his crew truly delivered. From the planning stages through completion Ricky was responsive, timely and gave us a clear expectation of all aspects of the project. The project started on time and finished on schedule. The installation crew did a great job making sure everything was done right and kept everything as clean and organized as possible while the project was going. We are thrilled with our new patio.
Mario at Pavestone is the best. He was a pleasure to work with. We didn’t know exactly what we wanted in a paver patio but Mario was patient with us and talked through a few designs, showed us the unilock catalog and helped us narrow it down. He gave insightful recommendations and never made us feel rushed or pressured and definitely no upselling!!! If you want proper old school customer service just ask for Mario. Once we scheduled the work, they had a crew of about 5 or 6 and it only took them 4 days. The attention to detail was wonderful. They laid down plywood to make sure they didn’t destroy the grass in-between the house. They were prompt and cleaned up every day. They did a fantastic job and did not rush through any of it. We couldn’t be happier. We LOVE our beautiful patio from Pavestone!
