Retaining Walls


Do you have a slope that is washing out or crumbling? Don’t worry, Capital Landscaping will travel anywhere in Central Iowa to fix your problem. We install commercial and residential retaining walls in Des Moines, West Des Moines, Urbandale, Clive, Johnston, Ankeny, Waukee, Altoona, and surrounding areas.

Retaining block walls are often necessary to level yards with slopes or uneven areas. They are built using interlocking landscaping blocks and can add a clean modern look to your landscape design. They can be built as tall as needed if height is the main consideration. Each retaining wall we build is custom designed and we can help you choose the style, color, and size that best suits your landscaping. For more information check out our guide to retaining walls, or this outside source here .

Boulder walls are a fantastic way to create a more natural look in your landscape while still being functional. We use a variety of boulder sizes to create a custom wall that retains soil, but boulder walls are limited in the height to which they can retain.

Timber walls are another option to create a more natural look to your retaining wall.

Block, boulders or timber can also be used to create custom above ground flower and garden beds.
