Retaining Walls & Stairways

The definition and purpose of a retaining wall…they hold back tremendous amounts of pressure, soil and rocks…they create useable space….and they transform a steep slope or hilly terrain into a functional and appealing part of your outdoor paradise.

Not only do retaining walls provide an important function, but they can also add dimension, texture and architectural lines to your landscape. The materials and products we use will be sure to compliment your home and its surroundings. Steps can be incorporated into any retaining wall making a convenient and easy transition from one level to another.

Unfortunately, many retaining walls fail because they are not built correctly. Donnie Mac’s Landscaping has specialized in engineering and constructing retaining walls for over 25 years. We take pride in the quality of our work and we stand behind our craftsmanship.

Just a short note of “Thanks” for the “Great Work” that your company provided for our new home in Suamico in the summer of 2010. Your creative design of our large stone deck/patio has added a dimension to our home that was totally unexpected when we began construction. As we bring people to our home, that area more than anything else, is the thing that people enjoy.
While it could be argued that other companies offer design services, the execution of your plan was a thing of beauty. Given the restricted area that you had to work with, your staff, in particular Chad & Joe did a fantastic job of keeping the site neat and organized to minimize the inconvenience to the neighbors.

Because of the nature and scope of this project, I was very concerned about the construction methods. I had researched in advance of our contract, the installation specifications for the products that were selected for our job. As your men will tell you, I was on site every day and I witnessed first hand how your installation and execution exceeded the industry standards. When spending the kind of money for the projects that people do, it is reassuring to know that the “Quality of Installation” will endure, just like the materials.
