Concrete Retaining Walls

Poured concrete retaining walls create a strong, stable, and lasting solution for all landscaping solutions. Concrete walls are typically less succeptable to damage caused by weather, erosion, and age than popular walling materials such as block, timbers, or railroad ties. In addition, pattern and texture stamping are now available for concrete applications that result in a highly attractive addition to your existing landscape. The stamping process is inexpensive and results in a wall much more attractive than the standard gray surface.

Our process, materials, and workmanship combined with over 17 years of experience, help you create solid landscape solutions for your property. Each retaining wall constructed by Overdrive Concrete is carefully planned and inspected and we will review each of the following before construction begins to assure that you are satisfied with the final product.
