Retaining Walls

Beautifying Walkways and Driveways with Retaining Walls and Paver Block

The front walk and driveway are the homeowner’s first opportunity to make a lasting impression. Pavers, not ordinary blacktop or concrete, tastefully welcome with style neighbors, family, and friends to your “castle” entrance. Masonry can give your home another level of sensational beauty with retaining walls for wherever a sloping property indicates.

Careful design and execution of your dream project sets Curb Appeal Design LLC above the crowd in installation of flagstone, bricks, and stamped concrete. The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) states that “segmental pavement systems are the preferred choice for sustainable and environmentally friendly pavements in North America.” Results from industry surveys indicate that paver sales are on the rise as their popularity increases with homeowners, due in part to the increase in home value pavers and retaining walls can provide in addition to their aesthetic value.

Curb Appeal Design LLC meticulously services the Morris and Essex County New Jersey areas with quality workmanship and design to help fill the need for aesthetically functional walkways, entranceways, terraces, driveways, pavilions or paths.

 

Retaining Walls are Load Bearing in Addition to Adding Beauty to a Landscape

Load bearing retaining walls hold back the earth and balance soil and rock from erosion and downslope motion. Properly designed drainage systems of load bearing retaining walls support vertical grade revisions. Given their structural strength, retaining walls are more popular and more appealing than poured concrete or the recently overused railroad tie walls (which are subject to rotting over time).

 

Decorative Retaining Walls Provide Privacy Fencing and Landscaping Opportunities

Decorative retaining walls add to the design of the home and landscape. Decorative retaining walls can be designed to fit the lifestyle of the facility or home. From practical uses such as benches, pillars, fences or terraced steps, to natural elements accenting the landscape with drainage plantings, cascading vines or trickling waterfall or pond systems, the options are endless.

 

Permeable Pavement Paver Blocks Are Good For the Environment

Not only do pavers come in a variety of textures, shapes, colors, and materials like granite, brick, concrete, limestone, they are more resistant to the effects of extreme temperatures. Pavers will not crack and unlike concrete or asphalt, every block has joints that permit a little amount of movement and a lot of water drainage. According to Sheryl Eisenberg on the Natural Resources Defense Council’s website (www.nrdc.org), using paver blocks instead of impermeable concrete or asphalt can“allow water to pass through to the ground below, and can help keep your local waters clean and restore groundwater reserves.”

 

Positive Experience in the Words of a Satisfied Customer

We’ve owned two homes over the past 17 years, and have completed dozens of improvement and maintenance jobs. Working with Curb Appeal Design has been as positive of an experience as I’ve had with a construction company. Curb Appeal helped us design and construct a sophisticated natural-stone retaining wall behind our house that consisted of two levels. The lower wall including a circular stone patio that jetted out so we could sit and enjoy a view down into the valley below. Curb Appeal completed the job in minimal time with maximum quality of materials and workmanship.

I especially appreciated how easily Mo Soliman, president of Curb Appeal Design was to work with. Although they were quick, they didn’t take short cuts. And Mo’s concern for quality made him willing to make adjustments, changes and additions to make things come out right, within the quoted budget. The final outcome was a complete job that looks great.

I highly recommend Curb Appeal and would use them again for future work.”
