Retaining Wall Contractors in Danville, CA

Hi, my name is Jimmy, a retaining wall contractor serving Danville, CA residents. I can help you with your retaining wall landscaping projects, especially if you want something special, like an original custom-designed wall that will make the neighbors notice and add value to your property. If you need advice, my inspections are free; call me at (925) 378-5814.
Here are some reviews of what our past customers have said about us.

Retaining walls may be essential, but they can be beautiful and add value to your property. Their primary purpose is to prevent soil from slipping away into undesired locations like your neighbor's property or backyard. Also, it must be strong enough to withstand natural forces, including gravity, water, and whatever nature throws at it.

If you are experiencing soil erosion or your wall looks like it's leaning, we can inspect it and advise on whether it needs to be replaced. Maybe even tho it's leaning, it still might have enough structural integrity; it's good to know either way. My on-site inspections are free, and I always recommend taking photos from different angles and sending them to me before I come out and evaluate your project.

We build Retaining Walls that compliment your landscaping.

My focus and passion have been on creating high-quality, long-lasting, esthetically beautiful retaining walls. I like to use boulders because it's a great way to build natural-looking retaining walls that complement your landscaping.

As the lead designer, I decide what size boulders fit together the best, along with the stacked order, so the wall looks natural. This is where my artistry and experience will benefit you. For me, it's why I love creating walls using raw materials. It's incredibly fulfilling.

We Build Retaining Walls for Any Application

We use wood, steel, concrete, blocks, and stone to construct precision-built retaining walls depending on the type of wall you need. We can also excavate, drill, and pour concrete into building a strong foundation for steep grades considered problematic by most companies in Danville.

Our process often includes using extra sturdy, custom-built caps and tops on top of walls, creating a very appealing look for our projects. We also utilize steel beams with custom-engineered foundation systems for an added touch of stability.

French drains are also one of our specialties, and we can install the proper drainage systems along the retaining walls to keep them from water erosion.

Frequently asked questions

  • Do you need a permit to build a retaining wall?
    If you're considering having a retaining wall built on your property, you may wonder if you need to apply for a permit. The first step is to determine if your address is in the town of Danville or the County of Contra Costa. In Danville, you need a permit for the wall unless it is under four feet tall. Here are some examples of conditions where a permit is not required.
  • Should I hire an engineer even if I don't need a permit?
    There are several factors to consider when determining if you should hire a licensed engineer to construct your retaining wall without requiring a permit. The first is the height of the wall and if it needs to be terraced. As certified engineers, we can design a plan for you and advise you on the best type of wall to build after inspecting your property.

(Jimmy) Retaining Wall Experts, this is Jimmy.

(Customer) Yeah. Hi. I need a retaining wall. So I'm here in Danville, and uh, my house is on a hill, and with the drought, I think the years of drought, the soil has shrunk, and so there's a slight shifting going on in the property.

(Jimmy) Okay. Yeah. You're correct that this drought has done a lot of damage to people's retaining walls. It's like if you have too much water, it could hurt them, and if you don't have enough, that could also hurt them.

(Customer) Yeah. Well, there's a hill above, and there was always a lot of water being fed into the land, and then all of a sudden, all the water supplies, you know, pretty much shut off. So can you check it out and give, you know, give me some proposal or something?

(Jimmy) Yeah. So do me a favor, Take down my cell phone number, and if you wouldn't mind, text me a couple of photos. Is there a retaining wall there now?

(Customer) No, no retaining wall.

(Jimmy) Okay. And what's access like for equipment to get where the retaining walls will be constructed?

(Customer) It's a large property. It's almost an acre of land. 

(Jimmy) Uh, are there any obstructions to getting equipment, like small tractors and such, to the work area?

(Customer) I don't know. You'll have to check it out. There's a big pool in the backyard. There's, yeah, you could get smallish equipment in there.

(Jimmy) Okay, perfect. So take down my cell phone number and text me your name and address. And then what I'll do is I'll reach out to you tomorrow morning. Will you be around tomorrow? 

(Customer) Yes
