Paver Retaining Walls

Many times when people think of retaining walls, the image that comes to mind is one of cylinder blocks that are gray and unattractive. What most don’t know is that pavers are strong and durable enough to be used as retaining walls also! Now, if you had your choice, would you rather look at gray cylinder block which may or may not be covered in stucco or would you rather look at a paver wall which would have gorgeous texture and beautiful variations of color? For us, the choice is simple!

Another way that many people use pavers is by creating a paver seating wall. A paver seating wall is a great way to 1.) improve flow of traffic 2.) increase amount of seating and 3.) it can also serve as a small retaining wall. Here are some beautiful paver seating walls that we just had to show you!
