When it comes to landscaping investments, retaining walls aren't always the most exciting item on the list. While it's true that retaining walls are certainly more functional than fun, they can still be really nice to look at. With quite a few material choices to choose from these days, there is no shortage of retaining wall ideas great for your Orange County, NY slopes and hills. Here, we take a look at one beautiful solution from Rosetta Stone, a manufacturer of concrete retaining wall block that grabs it's style inspiration from natural stone.

Outcropping from Rosetta is enormous in scale with the largest block sizing up at 6' in length. Each piece is set in place with an excavator as shown in the picture which makes the installation much faster paced than traditional 18" retaining wall systems. The natural look of the Outcropping system is truly amazing, often actually passing as natural boulders to the untrained eye.

The Landworx of NY office and shop located in Goshen, NY recently benefited from this unique retaining wall idea with a series of tiered walls to handle the slope. These tiered retaining walls will be finished off nicely with a hillside planting when the spring weather comes rolling in. Stay tuned to the Landworx Blog for more retaining wall ideas including natural fieldstone and other concrete wallstone products.
