While these homeowners were looking for a reliable retaining wall and paver contractor, Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. was recommended by a previous customer we had designed and built retaining walls and patio pavers for years before.  These homeowners in Sunset Hills chose Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. at first as their retaining wall contractor of choice and then as their paver patio contractor of choice. This hardscape masterpiece is one of my favorite retaining wall and paver patio designs of 2008.  The retaining wall installation was made easy with the very reliable Rockwood Colonial Stone.  This stone gives the perfect look here at a great price.  The 6” Colonial Taupe/Black blend matches the color of the home nicely and is the perfect stone to outline the installation of these Belgard Dublin Collection pavers we used to replace the old concrete patio that had cracked and looked bad. These high quality Belgard pavers transformed this outdoor space and will remain a great home improvement and investment in the value of the home for many years to come.

     

These homeowners in Chesterfield, MO needed to have a large railroad tie retaining wall replaced. Looking for a retaining wall contractor, they came across Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. while doing a Google search on retaining walls. We came out and gave them a free proposal with some great retaining wall design ideas. The final decision came down to Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. and another contractor who did not focus just on the design and installation of interlocking pavers and retaining walls. The homeowners examined the other company’s work against our retaining wall and paver craftsmanship and decided we were the better contractor. After choosing Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. to install these large retaining walls constructed using Rockwood Classic 8” straight-faced taupe block, they decided to also have us install these beautiful Romanstone Holland pavers timberwood blend color. Our finished product speaks for itself and these homeowners will never regret the time they took to examine our hardscape expertise against our competitors. Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. is not a landscaping contractor. We are a retaining wall and interlocking paver contractor. We concentrate on this craft every working day with a drive and determination to remain the best retaining wall and paver contractor in the St. Louis Metropolitan area; not only now, but for many years to come.

     
     

Looking for a retaining wall contractor on-line, these homeowners in Oakville, MO came across Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. and were very impressed by our website with over 1,400 retaining wall and paver pictures showing our constant drive and commitment to the best quality craftsmanship and innovative custom retaining wall designs to give you, the homeowner, the most bang for your buck.  Wanting to hire the best retaining wall contractor in St. Louis to guarantee the best return on investment, they wisely chose Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. as their retaining wall contractor to replace their old railroad tie walls with these new Rockwood retaining walls.  They liked our retaining wall design ideas and our price was very competitive. This Rockwood 8” Classic straight-face taupe stone was manufactured by Lemay Concrete Block here in St. Louis. Lemay Concrete Block is a 2nd generation family owned retaining wall block manufacturing business that is also one of the biggest manufacturers of Rockwood retaining walls in the world! These homeowners liked us so much they recommended Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. to their neighbors and co-workers and we have been blessed with much good retaining wall and patio paver work from them. They also wrote a great review of our company at Yellowpages.com under retaining walls St. Louis.

     

It is always a great privilege to be chosen by someone to be their retaining wall contractor.  But even better is to be chosen again years later to do even more hardscapes by the same homeowners.  What a great compliment it was when these homeowners in Sunset Hills called us out and told us they were not even taking bids from other retaining wall and paver contractors; that if the retaining wall and paver project  was going to be done, it would be done only by Agape Retaining Walls, Inc.  This retaining wall and patio paver installation was tricky because any time you install a wall or pavers up against the foundation of a home like this you need to excavate to the bottom of the foundation in the foundation overdig zone. This area is never compacted correctly and often is filled with unseen construction debris put there during the building of the house.  This area had to be excavated and filled with rock to guarantee the retaining wall and patio pavers will never sink!! When installed properly, inter-locking pavers are by far a superior product to any poured concrete! Pavers are very reliable and much harder than the traditional poured concrete.  Belgard pavers like these are cured at the perfect temperature with just the right amount of water and time to give them an average of 9,000 p.s.i.; over 3 times as strong as the average poured concrete. Also, pavers do not crack and are able to be pulled up and replaced in the event of an emergency. Notice on this project the Rockwood modular block steps coming out of the sliding glass door.  Zoom in on the craftsmanship that no other retaining wall and paver contractor in St. Louis can provide. These homeowners also wrote a great review for us at yellowpages.com under retaining walls St. Louis and have recommended us to many others. Agape Retaining Walls, Inc.’s guarantees, installation and designs are better, to my knowledge, than any other retaining wall or paver contractor in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area.  We truly mean what we say when we say we are “Simply the Best.”

     

These homeowners in Sunset Hills also found us on-line and were impressed by the amount of retaining wall and paver pictures, information, script and references we have. In our first free consultation meeting, I listened to what the homeowners were looking for and gave them some creative ideas that they very much liked. It is such a blessing to me that I have the opportunity to have creative retaining wall and paver design ideas that later become reality, transforming people’s homes and outdoor living spaces that provide the setting for many great memories over many years and decades. It is so important to be very careful when you pick your contractor. Make sure you check references, reviews, and affiliations. Look closely at their work in person.  Go to at least 5 jobs.  Check them out with the BBB. And one of my favorite things to tell homeowners – ask where they have a job or two going on and then stop by the jobsite unexpected and see who is coming to work at your home.  Different companies have different cultures and attitudes. Make sure that you are comfortable; not only with the sales person, but also with the workers and how they behave. These customers wisely picked Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. and have guaranteed the quality design, craftsmanship, and guarantees that come with that choice. These retaining walls are built using the Versa-Lok Mosaic Tumbled Stone with Romanstone pavers.

In 2002, these homeowners in Oakville, MO chose Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. to build these Rockwood retaining walls with 8” Classic straight-faced  stones to hold up their pool area. When designing a structural retaining wall like this, you need to make sure that your retaining wall contractor is using a qualified engineer like the one I used on this 9’ tall structural retaining wall.  I have worked with the same engineer for over 10 years and have installed walls 35’ tall, 34’ tall, 27’ tall, 20’ tall and just finished a wall he engineered for us replacing a large 20’ tall tiered railroad tie wall with an 18’ tall, 415 linear foot Rockwood 8” Classic straight-faced  block just like the one used in this picture. In St. Louis County, any wall 3’ or taller needs a permit and any retaining wall 6’ or taller needs to be professionally designed by a qualified structural engineer.

Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. designed and installed this 415 linear ft. 18’ tall commercial retaining wall in St. Louis, MO for Moore Foods. This retaining wall is constructed using a Rockwood Classic 8” straight-faced block manufactured in St. Louis, MO by Lemay Concrete Block. The Rockwood Classic 8” stone was the perfect modular block to replace the old railroad tie wall that structurally supported the parking lot of Moore Foods for over 20 years. The old railroad tie wall had several design flaws identified by Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. in the initial free consultation with the President of Moore Foods. The most obvious design flaw was the railroad ties themselves. Our first design improvement was to replace the old tie walls with a modern Rockwood retaining wall system.  The second design flaw we improved upon was the terraced walls that left Moore Foods paying taxes on land they could not use since the space between each terrace was approximately 8 linear ft. and 415’ long for each terrace.  Also, the terraced retaining wall design required a lot of regular maintenance, such as weed-eating.  The final result of this flawed railroad tie design was the limited parking space up top for Moore Foods. Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. came up with a single retaining wall design that allowed for the wall to be 18’ height rather than the 20’ tall total height, saving tens of thousands of dollars for our client. This single wall design allows for more useable space for Moore Foods and no maintenance is required. Agape Retaining Walls, Inc. was able to save this client tens of thousands of dollars on the initial retaining wall project, and our ideas will continue to bear fruit, saving Moore Foods over many decades, on maintenance, taxes on land they could not use, and increased parking lot space. If you would like us to put our experience to work for you on either a commercial or residential retaining wall project, e-mail us or call today!
