We Build Retaining Walls To Last A Lifetime

Retaining Walls are a Heyday Landscaping & Co speciality after building and installing over 500 successful walls in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa City corridor.  As professional and licensed installers, we've built a reputation as solid as our retaining walls, that we build every wall to last a lifetime, without moving an inch.  

What is a retaining wall?

Retaining walls are more than pretty rock structures added to your landscaping portfolio,  they serve a vital purpose in preventing erosion, managing water runoff, and supporting sloped terrain.

One of the primary functions of retaining walls is to prevent erosion. Erosion occurs when soil is washed away by water, wind, or other natural elements. Retaining walls act as barriers, holding back soil and preventing it from being eroded in yards, sidewalks and driveways.  By holding back the soil, retaining walls also prevent the shifting of the ground, ensuring the stability of nearby structures such as buildings, roads, or driveways.

In properties with uneven or hilly terrain, retaining walls create level surfaces, making it possible to utilize the land effectively. They allow homeowners to expand usable backyard space, tiered landscapes, or multi-level outdoor living spaces. These aesthetically pleasing designs not only enhance the visual appeal of the property but also provide functional spaces for various activities, such as gardening, relaxation, or outdoor dining.

Retaining walls can be built from a variety of materials including, stone, concrete block, masonry, concrete and wood.  Most of our retaining walls are built with concrete or natural block.

The Importance Of Building A Retaining Wall Correctly.

Retaining walls are a large investment and serve an important purpose to your residential or commercial property.  When a retaining wall is installed, it is a fair expectation that the retaining wall would be built to last at least 50-years and with the right installation, this is very possible.

Many retaining walls are installed incorrectly, without considering using the right material, soil, reinforcement, water drainage, weight & height, rock and more.  It is imperative that a retaining wall installer considers all of these variables when designing and installing a wall that needs to stand the test of time.

We build our retaining walls very differently than other companies, which is why we can guarantee our retaining walls will stand the test of time.  One of the main differences is every wall is set on a solid base that is installed correctly.  We also use a significant amount of rock behind our walls to ensure the wall will never shift.  Lastly, we're experts in water drainage and always consider how water will effect your wall during installation, which is why we do a significant amount of tiling behind walls.  

We look forward to your retaining wall project and building you a wall that stands the test of time.
