Retaining Walls Construction

in Birmingham, Al

In many parts of Alabama, retaining walls are necessary. Due to our hilly landscape, extra support is sometimes needed to prevent the earth from moving downhill with erosion. Battling gravity is a retaining wall's most basic function! They can also be used to create more living space in your yard. This is done by grading the land from it's natural slope and installing a retaining wall. This can add ample square footage of living space for your family!

Geostone Block System

At Mancha Hardscapes, we exclusively use Geostone medular block system. These blocks interlock by using grid and gravel and is extremely long-last, effective and easy to install.

Lakefront Retaining Walls

With the many beautiful lakes that are integrated throughout central Alabama, seawalls are often necessary as well. A seawall is a wall structure that is erected on a shoreline to prevent erosion and protect the land. Mancha Hardscapes works with many homeowners on our local lakes to install new seawalls or replace and repair existing ones.

We had Mancha Hardscapes Pools and Spas install our pool, spa and hardscapes several years ago and have absolutely loved our space. John is great and so easy to work with. Recently we had a problem with our pavers and even though it was not related to his work, he returned my call within an hour to help me. We would never choose anyone else to build our pool or outdoor space. Excellent service, quality work!

We continue to love our pool renovation (pavers, coping etc). They were easy to work with and I would recommend them. However, I agree with the monster truck comment...the cement truck cracked my driveway.

John, Chris and their crews built us a beautiful pool, retaining wall and drainage system. After the March 25th tornadoes and rain, our pool was flooded with mud and John and Chris came out, put in a much better drainage system, sodded our side-yard, fixed our neighbors yards and made things right. Highly recommend Mancha for any project!
