Fences and Retaining Walls

Fences and Retaining Wall Costs

Having a fence or retaining wall at your home is not uncommon. In fact, adding a new fence is one of the first major home improvements many young families take on as a DIY project, or have installed by a professional. Retaining walls are commonly added to shore up the side of a hill, or to add to your landscaping with either wood or decorative blocks.

In this section, you can review fence and retaining wall cost comparisons from both our local pros and other homeowners like yourself. If you’re unsure of all your options, read our guide on Yard Fencing and Types of Fencing for your Home. It’s very thorough, and helped many homeowners choose the right type of fence.
