Retaining Walls & Garden Walls
Retaining walls add stability to a property’s overall landscape design. The types of retaining walls we have constructed for Minneapolis home and business owners include the following.
Stone Retaining Walls
Natural stone retaining walls are very popular for home and business owners with gardens or those who wish to enhance their property’s outdoor living environment.
Strategically placed sitting walls will not only help you rest; they add functional value to any home or commercial property.

Retaining walls have to balance functionality and beauty. They serve a practical purpose, preventing erosion and in many cases stopping an otherwise unstable hillside from encroaching onto a garden or patio space. But unsightly walls are an eyesore, even if they are practical. At Dean Bjorkstrand, we ensure that you get the best of both worlds. We build walls that are sturdy enough to withstand pressure from the soil behind it, but also that look attractive and melds perfectly into the existing décor of your backyard.
A good wall starts with a proper foundation. They need to be well rooted because they have to have a fair amount of strength. It can be surprising for homeowners to learn just how much pressure dirt can exert – but if you’ve ever seen a retaining wall fall down, you know exactly how powerful the seemingly innocuous material can be.
The materials available for your wall will vary depending on what kind of soil needs to be contained and how high it needs to be. There are a wide variety of potential options, Including everything from wood (not generally recommended due to poor durability) to stone.
We will work with you to figure out what you need and what material choices best suit those needs. Then we’ll look at what best fits with your current patio area. What stones do you already have? What’s the tone of your plants? Do you have any statuary? All of these considerations impact how your retaining wall should look. We’ll work with you to pick the best choice from all of these disparate variables. The end result? A beautiful, functional, and attractive design with great durability and staying power.
