Retaining walls can be such a daunting task to think about. There's so much to think about. What material is going to be the most structurally sound for what you need? What's going to look best in your environment? What's most cost effective? While we don't work with timber, railroad ties, or poured concrete, we do have a variety of materials, such as concrete block natural stone, and boulders. Here's some examples and details on some walls we've done to help give you an idea of how we can assist you with your retaining wall needs!
The first wall we have pictured is a Diamond Straight Face concrete block wall. Concrete block would be the most cost effective of the materials we use. These are more monotone and come in a variety of colors (pictured is Gray). This block comes with lips that help reinforce the wall, which makes it structurally sound and great for holding back material.
The second wall we have is a Highland Stone concrete block wall. These are multi-colored, similar to a tie-dye effect, and come in multiple colors (pictured is Ironstone). The block comes lipped, for reinforcement for retaining walls, but also comes free standing. Free standing blocks can be used for decorative or seating walls; walls that won't be containing any material.
The third wall pictured is outcropping Premium Limestone Cubes. They're great for projects of any size and are very dense to hold back whatever material necessary.
The last wall we have is the Fieldstone Boulders. These come in a array of colors and sizes. We generally use 30-36 inch boulders, but they also come smaller, and come in irregular shapes. They're a very visual appealing choice to retain materials.

When it comes to stamped concrete, there are so many options that it can sometimes be overwhelming. Stamped concrete can add dimension and beauty to your project, but how do you choose which stamp to use? Let's chat about the differences a little bit. We have two main categories here at Custom Construction Services; Seamless and Hammered Edge. Seamless is going to give you a more continuous texture without any grout or joint lines, like Roman Slate, Blue Stone, or Rivera. Hammered Edge is a little more brick or stone-like with a more concentrated pattern and harder lines, like Cobblestone, Random Stone, or Ashlar. Our sales reps are always willing to go through examples with you at an estimate appointment and help you pick out the perfect stamp for your project!

Cake isn't the only thing that can be tiered! Lets take a peek at tiered retaining walls!
We all know that retaining walls are structures that hold soil behind it. Sometimes though, one single wall isn't exactly practical. Depending on your area, local safety ordinances prohibit designing a single wall to handle the elevation changes. Tiered retaining walls can be more aesthetically pleasing than a single wall, in some cases. Tiered walls can make more sense economically as well. Tall walls can sometimes bring additional excavation costs that may not have been accounted for in the beginning.
Here at Custom Construction Services, we have experience in both single and tiered retaining walls. If you're in need of a retaining wall, let us know how we can help you!

Winter can be so taxing on your concrete. Did you know when water freezes, it expands about 9%? This expansion creates pressure inside concrete. When the water freezes, thaws, and refreezes, as it's known to do in a Minnesota winter, it can cause your concrete driveways, patios, walkways, and steps to crack, scale, and crumble. These things can be unsightly, annoying, and sometimes dangerous. The good news is we can help with that. We can tear out your old, damaged concrete and install gorgeous, new concrete. We can make it colored, stamped, or just simple to keep a modern look. Spring is a time for fresh starts. Let Custom Construction Services help you refresh your concrete.

Stone is an incredibly versatile material. It can be clean cut and smooth or rustic and textured; used for stairs, a walkway, patio, or even an abstract garden sculpture. It can take almost any form you wish. As Michelangelo said, "Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.". You discover, we'll sculpt it for you.

Let's chat retaining walls. A retaining wall, by definition, is "a wall that holds back earth or water". Retaining walls are a great way to add some beauty, functionality, and support to your home or yard. You can create more usable land, like installing a new garden that you couldn't do before on a sloping hill. You can create a nice seating area for entertaining. Moreso, a retaining wall may be a necessity for your home. Retaining walls hold things back, usually earth/soil, and prevent them from sliding or eroding away. If erosion is threatening your foundation, a retaining wall can help by decreasing the angle of a slope and holding back soil.
Even though the term ~retaining walls~ may sound dull and boring, they can be quite beautiful. Whether you choose diamond stone cut blocks, limestone, boulders, or any of our other many gorgeous materials, we'll help you get the aesthetic you truly want.
