Retaining Wall Experts
Retaining walls are the unsung heroes of landscape design. Retaining walls are found in millions of homes, businesses and schools around the country—often going unnoticed because they blend in seamlessly with the surroundings.
Yet, when designed and installed right, retaining walls are one of the most unique, beautiful and functional additions to your landscape.
At Terra-Firma Landscape, we have two decades of experience designing and installing retaining walls for all types of residential and commercial properties. Our retaining walls protect and enhance your property.
We carefully plan and install your retaining walls, each serving an important purpose while also adding a beautiful design element to your yard—and fitting your personal style.
Retaining Walls: What You Need to Know
Simply put: a retaining wall is a structure that holds back or retains soil or other materials behind it. While some of our clients like retaining walls simply for their design, they also serve important functions in your landscaping.
Retaining Wall Purpose:
- Create beautiful terraces of usable land
- Manage water runoff
- Upgrade any outdoor space
Retaining walls offer additional benefits in certain yardscapes, such as providing additional seating. With experienced planning and a little creativity, retaining walls can be used to organize spaces and enhance your yard.
You may learn that a retaining wall is necessary for your property from a practical point of view, but you don’t have to settle for anything less than a beautifully designed retaining wall that also offers additional functionality!
Other Uses for Retaining Walls:
- Additional seating
- Flower beds
- Design focal points
- Steps across hilly landscapes
You have lots of design options for your retaining wall project and our team will walk you through all the different choices. Retaining walls can be straight, curved or terraced—and each can be customized to your lifestyle and/or your property’s current style.
We love helping our clients’ design ideas come to life while also helping them protect their property from erosion with appropriate water drainage.

Retaining Walls: Not a DIY Project
Many homeowners and business owners want to take on the task of building a retaining wall themselves. However, we caution against DIY retaining walls due to the special measurements and work required. Unfortunately, many DIY projects can’t withstand the elements and without proper grading may even cause water damage to the property and structures.
When it comes to retaining walls, planning and execution are important. Trust the experts and you’ll enjoy a long-lasting, beautiful and functional retaining wall.
Proudly Serving: Milwaukee County, Waukesha County, Southern Ozaukee County, and Northern Racine County.
