Timber Retaining Walls
Strategic Fence and Wall Company are Timber Retaining Wall specialists. We have been involved in projects both large and small, from civil construction for roads to small timber planter boxes for flowers and shrubs. We typically use pressure treated landscape timbers that are available in olive green or brown colors. Usually the timbers are 6" x 6" we have built walls with 6" x 8" or even 8" x 8".
This design is very strong because it is essentially one big box filled with 2" - 4" diameter washed rock. The rock allows ground water to pass through the structure and therefore taking hydrostatic forces out of the picture. There is also a large footprint that will restrict any settling. our tallest crib wall to date is 32' tall.
Solid Walls are better suited for smaller walls or where there is limited space. Sometimes levels are stepped back and flowers and shrubs are planted to help with visual appeal.
Steps can be incorporated into retaining wall construction or free standing. Handrail systems can be added if desired.
What People Are Saying...
Thanks, as always, for being so easy to work with. You are one of the few contractors in the county who show up on time, do work quickly and professionally, and often complete the job way ahead of schedule. You and Fez (& employees) deserve a medal!
Patty and I were very impressed, not only with the product, but with the crew. Each of the crew was skilled, polite, hard working, and proud of what they were doing. Jose did some amazing work on the gates and maintained the perfect balance between asking our opinion and giving us an experienced perspective.
Thank you for doing the fence for us. Everyone was great and we love the fence.
Just wanted to let you know that your crew did a fine job installing our fence. Everyone was pleasant and polite and hard-working. We think the dimensional fence looks great with our house. The stain is a pretty good match. Our dogs love it and so do we.
Thank you so much; the fence is perfect! We are very pleased with the fence, and have already received compliments from neighbors about how great it looks. Our dog is happy too!
"Heather and I (and the dogs) want to thank you, Felix and the rest of the crew for doing such an excellent job on our fencing at our new house. Both fenced areas turned out to be just what we needed for containing our animals and providing peace of mind to us. Your ideas and suggestions were excellent and the results speak for themselves.
It is a real pleasure to deal with a professional organization that brings the price in as quoted and on time as expected - a rare treat in this day and age. Please feel free to have any of your prospective new clients call us for a reference, as we could not have been more pleased with the job you did for us."Silverthorne Homeowners
