Maryland Erosion Control

Do you have an issue with land erosion, a steep slope or inadequate drainage? Maybe you need to create safe access, or find a clever way to merge different areas on your property. Or, like our client, Dr. T., you may have difficult terrain you hope to transform and put into use near your home.

Making this kind of investment affects your property appearance and value, as well as your lifestyle, for decades. That’s why people call landscape design and installation experts like East Coast Landscape Design. We are an award-winning firm specializing in transforming “difficult” land into a landscape you will love.

Dr. T. provided us with an interesting side yard landscape project that involved landscape challenges like:

  • A very steep slope
  • Erosion control
  • Air conditioning and equipment already in place
  • Existing landscape integration and preservation
  • Drainage provisions, and
  • Creating private access between the front and back of the property

We decided on a structured design supporting a terraced staircase abutting the house, with a lower patio area for entry into the back storage door attached to the home. You can see the space was tight, and we needed to make several provisions for the existing landscape and structural elements. We installed segmented and decorative retaining walls with a built-in drainage system, in combination with Crepe Myrtle trees and large, native stones for naturally elegant flow around the steps. Clean, simple, and effective, Dr. T. is thrilled with this new landscape he helped create, solving multiple landscape challenges while adding access, value and beauty.

They did a retaining wall. It's perfect. They showed up when they said they were going to and finished the job up nicely. I hadn't worked with them before...I have some jobs in the works, and I plan on reusing them...I would call on them again...
