A well-constructed and attractive retaining wall can provide privacy or a defining barrier for contrasting elevations in your landscape. A retaining or dividing wall can be an interesting focal point for your property with the right design, construction, and materials.
Retaining or freestanding walls do not need to take on the tired look of standard concrete blocks. McNear Brick and Block products from ProCoat Systems provide a choice of many permanent colors and elegant styles.
