A retaining or sitting wall can be a simple, attractive upgrade to your landscaping or a vital part of the foundation for your outdoor space. Our professional retaining wall designers create and build everything from simple garden walls around trees and planting beds to larger, load-bearing retaining walls. We offer several different styles and colors of retaining walls to fit any need.


Hardscaping with Purpose

Retaining walls aren’t just built to improve the flow and style of your property. A retaining wall can actually be a feat of civil engineering, designed to perform a very important function. Some practical reasons for installing a retaining wall include holding soil in place, protecting your property from erosion, keeping backfill to one side of the wall, or changing the grade of a slope. In order for a wall to successfully reinforce the soil and resist the forces of the earth that it retains, the design, materials, and installation of your wall must follow exacting technical specifications. At NOVA Landscape & Design, we have the knowledge, skill, resources, and expertise to ensure your retaining wall withstands the test of time.

A Northern Virginia NCMA Certified SRW Installer

There are lots of acronyms in the hardscaping business, but these two are pretty important. The National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA) issues certifications for a variety of concrete-related applications. Nova Landscape & Design is an NCMA certified installer of Segmental Retaining Walls (SRWs) – gravity-retaining walls that rely primarily on their mass (weight) for stability. Our certification ensures that we not only design beautiful walls from reliable, quality materials, but that we follow industry best practices and keep up with the latest technology.
