Retaining Walls

Given its hilly terrain, Nashville homeowners often need retaining walls to maximize the use of their outdoor spaces. Smart Scapes has installed hundreds of retaining walls in our 30+ years in business.

Call (615) 356-0139 to secure the wall design and build that will make your outdoor space perfect.

It’s hard to beat the look of concrete paving stones for your patio or outdoor living spaces. From the durability of concrete pavers to the ease of patio paver stone installation, patio paving stones are the perfect choice for Nashvillians looking for a fresh, new take on their landscaping. The color and pattern contrast in patio paver stones helps differentiate your home from those around you and also provides a beautiful backdrop for your lush, green lawn.

Retaining Wall Design

Smart Scapes, LLC is at the forefront of the retaining wall industry in Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin, Mount Juliet, Hendersonville, Murfreesboro and neighboring cities in Tennessee. Retaining wall design is crucial to a good project with a long life span.

Segmental retaining walls are some of the newest technology in retaining wall installation. Installed correctly, the retaining wall will be standing longer than the building will. Segmental walls can also be built as free-standing walls. Have more questions? Call (615) 356-0139 to learn more.

Block Retaining Wall

Boulder walls or stone walls also can be a good solution to a slope that needs terracing. Knee walls are often a more decorative wall used to hold back a little earth or be a free-standing wall like in a path. As retaining wall builders, we encourage our clients to choose the right wall for their project. If you have a spot that is not viewed and you need a solution for 15-20 years, cross-tie walls or railroad tie walls may be the answer for you.

We have installed dozens of free-standing and retaining walls throughout our company’s rich and diverse history of hardscape construction. Our retaining walls are one of our most popular services.

The Right Retaining Wall Contractor

You should take several things into account when hiring a retaining wall contractor.  A retaining wall is an investment in your landscape. Installed correctly, the wall will be there longer than the home or structure. Installed incorrectly, failure is imminent. Price should be a factor in deciding on a contractor but you should also go with your gut on who is able to do the best job to get the best return of your money. Don’t let the low price make you suffer from poor quality and have to rebuild your wall just a few years down the road.
