Retaining Walls Cape Coral


Installation of paver structures such as retaining walls are some of the best investments that Southwest Florida homeowners can make.

When talking about pavers, most people immediately think about the driveways of homes designed in the Mediterranean Revival style of residential architecture. The reality of pavers is that they can be used to build other residential structures that not only look great but also provide functionality while increasing the value of properties.

As a professional installer and paving contractor in Southwest Florida, Unique Pavers Design is often called upon to build the following:

Retaining Walls

The sunny climate and the natural beauty of Southwest Florida are meant to be enjoyed by spending time in the outdoors. To this effect, paver retaining walls are ideal structures due to their aesthetics and utility.

Essentially, retaining walls are masonry projects designed to keep soil and vegetation in place. Although Southwest Florida residents are lucky to not be affected by earthquakes, there is still a risk of soil shifting and moving out of place after frequent rainstorms.

When creating a retaining wall, the professionals at Unique Pavers Design think beyond how the structure would look. With the right blocks and masonry pattern, any wall can look great; what is even more important is the purpose it will serve. Rainwater drainage is a major consideration; other design factors include whether the wall will double as a bench to enjoy sunny days or if it can be attached to another feature such as an outdoor grill.

Seawalls and Walkways

Living the waterfront lifestyle can be very enjoyable, but so often properties end in an impractical slope towards seawalls.

Southwest Florida is known as a waterfront housing market with very little elevation above sea level. Over the last few decades, new housing codes designed to protect properties from flooding have been put into place. One requirement for newer homes has been to raise the elevation of land the house is built on. A great solution for keeping homes dry, but also the result of unusable slopes towards the edges of properties. Paver walkways, steps, and retaining walls fix the problem with a terraced effect.

Waterfront homes will have seawalls, and these are beautifully complemented with a paver walkway. Picture having easy access to a boat lift, dock, and fishing. Paver walkways are among the most powerful elements of curb appeal, which means that they add value to properties. A decorative retaining wall with a matching paver walkway can transform any waterfront property into the envy of the entire neighborhood, and this is something that will be very beneficial when it is time to sell the home.

Outdoor Paver Steps

When it comes to choosing an outdoor stair structure, homeowners should only consider pavers as their top choice of building material. There are three main advantages of paver stairs: durability, aesthetics, and maintenance.

With hundreds of paver blocks and patterns to choose from, homeowners can easily find the stair that they would like to see in their patios, pools, gazebos, docks, etc. Paver steps will last several years without being damaged, and they can withstand a lot of foot traffic. When it comes to maintenance, paver steps tend to stay clean; a single afternoon rain is all it takes to wash them off. Pressure washing may be required every two years or so.

The structures above are just some of the most commonly installed in Southwest Florida. If you would like to learn more about how pavers can improve your home, contact us today.
