Pittsburgh the City of Retaining Walls.

Did you know Pittsburgh is ranked the number three city in the country for most residential retaining walls?

Retaining walls make it possible to create more usable space on each property in which slopes are present. By cutting back the slope and placing retaining walls we can for example make room for a driveway, a patio or just a larger flat area to the back yard.

Pittsburgh also has a long winter season which includes many freeze and thaw cycles. These cycles are the main reason retaining walls fail. Its very important when creating or replacing a retaining wall that its built to withstand these conditions. An Improperly designed retaining wall will move just a little bit each time there is a freeze and thaw cycle, this movement will result in the wall leaning forward and eventually its failure.

You may have noticed but there is no shortage of leaning and failing retaining walls in the Pittsburgh area, this is why it's of such importance to do your homework prior to hiring just any retaining wall contractor.

Here at Palat Landscaping, we offer a 5 year craftsmanship warranty on all wall installations and we recommend and regularly install Versa-Lok retaining wall systems this is based on versatility cost and longevity.

We also install Techo-bloc retaining walls these are usually reserved for a more decorative application but are also very durable and attractive materials.
