Retaining Walls

First consider if your wall is on a hill and will be acting as a ‘retaining wall’. Retaining walls hold back soil from a sloped area, preventing erosion and can even help with water flow. Retaining walls can add depth to your overall landscape design.

What is Coping?

Coping is a covering on top of a wall using stone, bricks, terracotta, or concrete. Coping is typically rounded and weathered to protect the wall from rain and bad weather. Coping can also act as a decorative element or provide more comfortable seating. Landscape Management Group’s coping options include Bullnose Coping, Rosetta Coping, Indiana Limestone as well as, many other material selections that are available upon request.  The following are some of our most popular options.

Bullnose Coping retaining walls

Landscape Management Group’s coping options include Bullnose Coping, which is rounded and popular because it is nice to sit on.  Bullnose is considered universal coping which means it can be used with most wall blocks. Bullnose pavers give added dimension to any wall, step or patio application when an overhang is desired. The bullnose edge provides a smooth rounded edge that creates a slight shadow line that is the finishing detail in many applications.

Rosetta Dimensional Coping retaining walls

Rosetta Coping is considered dimensional coping which looks more natural using larger stacked stones with a rougher stone texture.

Indiana Limestone Coping retaining walls

 Indiana Limestone natural stone and concrete caps add a finishing touch to your wall or pillar project.
