Functional retaining walls serve many purposes, such as leveling, retaining, or terracing a sloped area, to create space and usability, to maintain an existing grade, and to curb soil erosion. Consider installing accent and garden walls to break-up space and add decorative interest. Outdoor Arts can design and install a retaining or accent wall using a variety of materials to ensure longevity, aesthetic appeal, and affordability. Our skilled staff will make sure that your walls have strong stable bases, compact backfill, and proper drainage for outstanding resilience!


Stone and boulder retaining walls and terraces provide an elegant beauty as well as a stable, hardy form of soil erosion control. Popular types of stone include Siloam stone, granite, river rock, and moss rock – a good variety for all styles! We can also incorporate a new or existing water or fire feature to create an tranquil backyard getaway!


Although timber walls are declining in popularity, many homeowners install them for their natural appeal. Colored and natural timber retaining walls are affordable and versatile options.


Block & Brick Let us design a visually striking retaining wall for your landscape using colored, stamped, or textured concrete blocks and bricks. These affordable walls can stand-up against what Mother Nature has to offer, while leaving room for a completely unique design!


These retaining walls will add a bit of elegance and allure to your outdoor space! Garden walls, seating walls, and other accent walls can be used in tiered or terraced landscapes to help grade the slope, guide guests through your gardens, and break-up or tie-together large spaces. Our expert designer can offer a variety of materials that will complement your garden and the style of your home.

I've known Erik for several years. I felt very comfortable working with him and thought he was someone I could trust completely to do a good job at a very reasonable price. I have been very happy to work with him. I had a lot of damage to my landscaping from the tornado of June 2014, and so I've been putting in a lot of new things. I can depend on Erik to work with me and respect my likes and dislikes. He is very conscious of budget and provides a lot of service for the money. He is experienced and knowledgeable but always looking to learn and improve. I'm especially impressed by his good humor and calm demeanor. He is "unflappable"! I can recommend him without reservations

Every project I have done with Mr. Bernier has carried the hallmark of creativity, quality, and timeliness. He demonstrates integrity and service in all his work. Most important to me, he follows through on the small tasks with the same level of commitment as the large projects, so I have to chase down very few details, if any. I am not an easy client, living in Virginia most of the year, but Mr. Bernier gives my unique lake front site the same care and attention that I would, with a weather eye to environmental concerns and keen insights into sustainable landscape.

It's enjoyable to work with individuals who are creative and professional. I am so happy with our end result! I love how the boulders look now that they are re-positioned. I wish you would have heard all the comments from the people who live here. I'm proud of you and your crew. I'll be in touch about the future projects and be available to plant any extra hosta/perennials you might encounter in future jobs!

We are so pleased with everything you did for us this fall-weeding, landscaping, designing, and installing a new patio, and of course lots of planting bed clean up around our deck. From the beginning to the end of the project, you actually exceeded our expectations. You worked so hard and in our opinion, worked "above and beyond" what we envisioned. You were so responsive to everything we said and asked of you - You're a great listener and your attention to detail is the secret for our success!

--Pam and Tom Tresdell
Our landscape design manager Erik Bernier was outstanding. He was professional, visionary and very understanding and willing to work with us. In addition, he needs to be commended for his patience in dealing with a client who was a bit worried about the final look of the project and willingly made it out to our site after hours, when he had plans, to review and calm me down. For that I thank him! Erik did a WONDERFUL job! I look forward to some additional possible projects and will consult with Erik again.

--Carol Brey
Thank you Erik for creating a great landscape design plan for our new home. Your work is very impressive and far exceeded our expectations. What we really like is that it is a plan we can grow into and implement over time. We look forward to sharing pictures as the work gets done and are happy to pass your name along.
