Retaining walls add character to a landscape and value to your property. Assiniboine Lights & Landscapes takes into consideration many factors when it comes to building retaining walls in Calgary. These factors include height, retaining function, needed structural integrity, the space available, and the character of the property.  In a yard with a strong slop, terracing increases water retention which allows vegetation to absorb more and grow healthier, while preventing soil erosion.

Steps draw the eye and inevitably become the centerpiece of any landscape. Assiniboine can build steps in a variety of styles and products to suit any budget. Whether you choose to use timber, stone, or cement, steps provide both beauty and function. Sometimes the combination of multiple products can bring an entire landscape together, (walls and patios) and they create a focal point with synergy.

Assiniboine offers a full range of Landscape Construction Services.


Types of Retaining Walls

Assiniboine’s expert contractors are capable of building all types of retaining walls. From small to large supporting walls, our crews can also replace old deteriorating walls with a new well built wall. We construct retaining walls using different types of materials. Such as Manufactured or Concrete Blocks, Natural Stone or Pressure Treated Wood.

Manufactured stones come in many different styles and colour options. A few examples are:

  • Allan Block
  • Cornerstone
  • Roman Pisa

Natural Stone Boulders are durable and stackable. The most common types of natural stone that we use in Calgary are:

  • Ironstone
  • Armourstone
  • Rundle Stone – one of the most popular choices

Denise M.

They were beyond professional. They listened and found a way to deliver my ideas within my budget. Their workmanship was excellent and they found their own flaws and fixed them. They always left the site clean and tidy at the end of their shift. If more work need to be done they will be the first ones I call without a second thought. I highly recommend them you won’t be disappointed.

Assiniboine Landscaping did a fantastic job with our new patio and pergola spring 2017! We’re very happy with the final result….well done! Kris and the crew were professional, friendly and diligent in completing the project in a timely manner. They were very attentive to detail and communicated well with regard to when the crew would be around, any possible changes with the construction plan and general cost implications. That being said the overall cost was generally in line with the cost estimate that I received beforehand. Thanks.

Just want to let you guys know how awesome Cam is, ( you likely already know ) but his work ethic is second to none and the job he does far exceeds even my fussy expectations. I just can’t say enough good things about him!
