Walls, Fences & Gates

Walls can be functional, decorative, or both. Retaining walls hold the earth back or build it up and sitting walls can create separation in a yard as well as provide sitting space.

Walls can be made from pavers, stone, cement, masonry, and more. Fences can be made of stone, brick, masonry, wood, metal, or a combination of materials. In addition, you may want to add a gate to your wall or fence.

Whether you want to create visual interest in a contemporary yard, add charm, create a stunning focal point, or have privacy, Vail Landscape Builders will be there every step of the way with our experienced and licensed contractors.


Walls give your landscape design structure. They are an important part of any landscaping project. Walls can give you privacy, divide different areas, protect your yard from the outside elements, contain gardens, build up elevation in a specific area, keep the earth from moving, and also be visually pleasing to look at.


Improve the look of your landscape with a beautiful fence that will stand up to the elements for years to come while seamlessly blending in with the outdoors. Fences, like walls, can be built from many different combinations of materials such as brick, pavers, wrought iron, wood, and more. Our designers can help you create something practical and pleasing to look at.


Many walls or fences can go from ordinary to stunning with the addition of the right style of gate. Our designers can help you choose the unique piece that will make the whole design come together in just the way you imagined it.

Retaining Walls

  • Retaining walls can be made from pavers, stone, brick, rock, cement, treated wood, and a combination of other materials. They provide a wide range of different functions such as protecting the house from a surrounding hillside, defining garden spaces, and helping to add to the square footage of an outdoor space.
  • Retaining walls provide added support in areas that are susceptible to erosion, especially in places where a vertical grade change has been made.
  • Home retaining walls can be as beautiful as they are practical.
  • Stone or masonry walls are truly a beautiful addition to any yard or patio area. They will bring a whole new dimension to your outdoors.
