Retaining Wall Systems for Back Yard and Front Yard Landscaping
Choosing retaining walls for your home is no easy task. How tall can you build your retaining walls? Do your retaining walls need to be engineered? What's the different between wet cast and dry cast retaining walls?
Don't get overwhelmed! You'll find all the information you need to get started on your residential retaining walls right here.
Redi-Rock is a great choice for residential projects because it combines the structural integrity you need, plus the aesthetics you want. Whether you’re creating a walkout basement, making room for a more usable yard, supporting a driveway, re-designing your landscaping or anything in between—you can design a solution for your home using Redi-Rock.
Naturally textured Redi-Rock retaining wall blocks are made from architectural-grade precast concrete which creates durable residential retaining walls that will stand the test of time. Each massive Redi-Rock block weighs more than one ton each, which means your contractor can build tall gravity retaining walls (saving time and money on installation) and even taller reinforced retaining walls using the Positive Connection (PC) System.
Plus, coordinating Freestanding walls, Columns, Steps, Caps, and Pavers help create a cohesive look that your family will appreciate for generations to come. Redi-Rock walls are available in three textures—Ledgestone, Cobblestone, and Limestone—to match your home’s aesthetic.

Featured Case Study
- Emerald Hills Development - Sherwood Park, Alberta
“Construction timing led us to choose Redi-Rock. Because it didn’t require tiebacks, we were able to install the blocks after everything else went in and solve our construction timing issue,” the engineer said.
This project included:
- Cobblestone gravity walls to support the roadway
- A faux arch culvert to make the structure look like a bridge
- Freestanding walls and caps to act as a barrier for pedestrians
The developers were so impressed with the results that they will be using Redi-Rock through future phases of the development!
