Building Functional and Beautiful Retaining Walls In The Naperville, IL Area of Chicago
Installing a retaining wall can truly transform the functionality and look of your landscape design. But it has to be done right. At Montanos Landscaping, we have years of experience as well as technically skilled teams that are experts in installing structurally-sound, long-lasting retaining walls.
As an added benefit of working with us, our on-staff landscape designer has a hand in each retaining wall project. That way, you can be confident that your new retaining wall will not only be durable and functional, but that it will beautifully complement your home’s style.
We offer two retaining wall material options, each with its pros and cons.
Concrete Blocks Pros:
Made to fit most spaces, easily fitting and staying together
Wide variety of color, size, and shape options
Simple to modify and repair, especially for drainage purposes
Easier and cheaper to install
Above 4 feet, stabilization is more difficult
Stylistically, doesn’t look as authentic as natural stone
Installations are standard, not unique
Natural Stone Pros:
A sort of status symbol in landscaping
Fits especially well in rustic, country style homes
Can also be made to look incredibly modern and high-style
Materials come in a variety of shapes and sizes, encouraging creativity
Every installation is unique
More expensive per square inch
Longer installation period
Potential drainage issues if not properly maintained
Height and size can prove too difficult to execute

"Carlos and his crew did a great job updating and improved our landscaping with new native plants, built a retaining wall and replaced our old ugly concreat path with a beautiful walkway with pavers. I would highly recommend Montano’s Landscaping." - Penny Boyle, Google
