Transform a difficult to mow hill into a terraced, functional, safe and productive showpiece.
Retaining walls add character to a landscape and value to your property. Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes takes into consideration many factors when it comes to building retaining walls in Calgary. These factors include height, retaining function, needed structural integrity, the space available, and the character of the property. In a yard with a strong slop, terracing increases water retention which allows vegetation to absorb more and grow healthier, while preventing soil erosion.
Steps draw the eye and inevitably become the centerpiece of any landscape. Assiniboine can build steps in a variety of styles and products to suit any budget. Whether you choose to use timber, stone, or cement, steps provide both beauty and function. Sometimes the combination of multiple products can bring an entire landscape together, (walls and patios) and they create a focal point with synergy.
Assiniboine offers a full range of Landscape Construction Services.
