We Build Beautiful and Functional Retaining Walls

Pugh's Earthworks Retaining Walls are an important part of any landscape. They can be used to increase the usable space on your property by creating flat levels, which is especially helpful for larger properties. Retainer walls are also a great way to contain and direct water runoff from hillsides and steep banks. If you are thinking about installing a retaining wall in your yard, it is important to make sure that it is built right so that it lasts for years to come. That is why it is so important to seek the assistance of a professional Commercial Landscaping Company like Pugh's Earthworks.  Here are some steps used for constructing a strong, long-lasting retaining wall: Use a concrete masonry unit (CMU), which is made from crushed stone and cement. This type of wall will be more expensive than an earthen retaining wall, but it will last longer and resist erosion better. If you are using an earthen wall, make sure that you use soil that is well-drained and has a good amount of organic material. Use the right mix ratio for your CMU or earthen wall; a good rule of thumb is one part cement to three parts stone (by weight). If you are using a CMU wall, make sure that the stones are graded in size so that they fit together well. A sturdy, well-constructed, and properly designed stone or concrete retaining wall will extend the life of your landscape by stopping soil erosion caused by rainwater runoff from your land. A retaining wall is a structure designed to retain soil, rock, or sand on its downhill side. Retaining walls are often used to create flat levels and prevent erosion on sloped areas. They can also be used as part of an irrigation system, directing water runoff into channels or other devices that will direct it away from buildings and plants. In addition to being functional, retaining walls add aesthetic value to any landscape design project because they serve as a boundary between different areas within the yard while also creating interesting patterns in both coloration and texture when combined with other features like plants or paving stones (if placed near sidewalks). Retaining walls are a great way to add usable space in your yard by creating a flat level area on which you can build a patio. Retaining walls come in many different styles, sizes and materials. The most common types of retaining wall are made out of stone (or concrete), brick or wood. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages that should be considered before making a decision as to which one will work best for your project. Once again, retaining walls create flat levels, contain and direct water runoff, increase the usable space on your property and add value to your home. They can also be used as an aesthetic enhancement to any landscape design. Retaining walls are made up of concrete blocks or stone that support soil behind them. They come in many different [...]

Beautiful Multi Terrain Landscaped Cemetery Lands Little Rock Landscaping Little Rock Arkansas is a beautiful city. With its rolling hills and river it is breathtaking. For a landscaper it can be a challenge and it takes the expertise of qualified and skilled landscaping company like Pugh's Earthworks to properly address the terrain variations. When landscaping slopes and hillsides there are several things landscapers must keep in mind. Trying to walk on slopes and can be difficult so careful planning to ensure a safe walk way is important. Then with hillsides there is always the potential hazard of soil runoff. Barriers have to be constructed so the soil remains intact. Keeping valuable nutrients from washing away with the runoff is critical. Properly landscaped, hillsides can be spectacular. Advantages to a hill is that you have a better view to visualize and create a perfect combination of plants, flowers and erosion preventing materials. Sometimes it is evident that additional topsoil will be needed if the hill is mostly rocks. Planting the proper flowers and shrubs in the available pockets will render a spectacular landscaped area. In addition to the variation of flowers and plants, stone walls are also a wonderful addition to a hilly landscape. Not only are they attractive but they are extremely functional with offering several benefits. In addition to helping to retain the soil and the nutrients, the stone can create its own micro-climate. This is because stone heats up from the sun and tends to retain that heat during the night. This often allows plants to grow in that area when they would not grow in other surrounding areas. Having a building that is situated on a hill can be stunning to the viewer.  The addition of stairways, paths and the proper combination of shrubs, flowers and plants can add so much beauty and property value. Choosing tough plants that will not require routine trimming is important. Therefore often evergreens are a great [...]
