At LandWorks their masons are obsessed with details and use the same techniques that have been passed down for generations. They are also skilled at working with a variety of materials and will design and install a retaining wall that might become the focal point of the property.
2. Are retaining walls only to prevent Montgomery County, MD properties from experiencing erosion?
While retaining walls are an effective way to prevent damaging erosion this is not their only possible function. A retaining wall can also denote property lines and create boundaries around spaces. They can add curb appeal and guide visitors along the driveway retaining walls can even be terraced and used to create colorful plantings.
3. Are there any permits needed to have retaining walls built in Montgomery County, MD?

They will make sure that all of the paperwork is filed and permits are secured, and any other requirements are met before the project is started.
