Living Retaining Walls

Matt Ciminelli is a leading Annapolis landscaper practicing environmentally friendly techniques and “green-scaping”. We create a number of interesting retaining walls using environmentally friendly materials as well as create living retaining walls. Maryland offers a wonderful climate for living retaining walls. A living wall provides:

Function – Living Retaining Walls function just as a traditional stone or timber retaining wall would.

Beauty – Living Retaining Walls add beauty to a landscape by converting hardscapes into greenscapes and creating a vertical garden as well as a habitat for birds, butterflies and beneficial insects.

Conservation – Living Retaining Walls typically require 50% less concrete or other building material to construct. Living Retaining Walls also reduce storm water runoff and reduce erosion.
