These guys were really great, I had them come quote a job where they could have easily made a buck off of me, but instead they told me how I could easily do the project myself and save thousands. Feels rare to come across honesty like that! I would definitely trust this company to do an amazing job. I’ll be calling them for future needs!

Landscape & Hardscape Design

Kat Abreu

We just completed a backyard remodel with Designs 4 You and are thrilled with the results. The turf is the best quality and looks terrific. Our pavers and border are solid with a concrete underlayment. Sharon, our project manager, really cares about his customers and is willing to get his hands dirty– he planted our shrubs himself! The team was efficient, on time daily, clean, and completed the work as promised.

Landscape & Hardscape Design

The project took about 6 months from landscape design beginnings to yard completion. We had 3400+ cubic feet of cement removed (a huge portion butted up to our house and pool). The precision of pulling that up was amazing. We got to know the workers pretty well since they were here 5 days a week working from 7-4 for 3 months straight.

Our Project Manager, Sharon, took all of our ideas into consideration and delivered something beyond even what my wife and I could have imagined. The attention to detail, the speed with which they worked, and the suggestions that they offered to bring our yard to life was incredible. We don’t have much of a backyard due to space, and we wanted a space in our front yard for our son to play. We got flawless concrete and turf work, in addition to beautiful walls, a fence, and a gorgeous Santa Barbara style planter.

Review from the above retaining wall client:

"When I first began looking for estimates on a hardscape project I ran into many willing and capable companies to work with, but it wasn't until I met with Sunny (project manager) at Designs 4 You that changed all that. Their business model is all around the customer and that is what set them apart from the others. My project was installing a 53 ft retaining wall with steps with terrace in my back yard, it was to be phase 1 of 3. I wanted a reasonable price with good quality and I believe that is what I got from Sunny and his team. Right off the bat they offered a discount in combination with their comparable rates. They also offer a longer warranty than most, they educate you on the process (I learned so much more I didn't know before), they back up their word with a contractor's bond, they work with your budget and really try to emphasize a long term relationship with you the consumer. Sunny was instrumental in the whole process and kept in communication with me at all times making sure things were to our liking and ensured his team understood what needed to be done. Jonathan (the owner) really listened to what we wanted to accomplish and was willing to work with our budgets and timelines on pricing. It didn't feel transactional, but instead working with Designs 4 You felt like I was their only customer."


Whether you need any retaining wall building or major repairs, our team at Designs 4 You Remodeling has got you covered. We are experts in concrete retaining walls that fit the landscape and needs of your property. It’s essential a retaining wall is built with plans and care, as they are often an important structural part of your hardscaping. Our retaining wall architects can handle the most advanced and complicated walls possible. Our contractors are all licensed and insured, and we only work with the best suppliers in San Diego. We can find any type of blocks you desire, or recommend a local source for retaining wall bricks. 3D models for your wall can also be created and are very helpful in visually projecting the end results and goals.


Retaining walls are also commonly known as landscape walls. Landscape walls are most often constructed using either concrete, cinder blocks, keystones, wood, natural stone, or dry stack walls, or sometimes a combination. Properly engineered and constructed San Diego Retaining walls help hold back soil and land by protecting your property that may have the slope, hill, canyon, or ravine that requires such a wall. We can help you create any 3D Design and engineering plans needed for a retaining wall in San Diego. The most common type of retaining wall is CMU (concrete masonry unit) retaining wall. Keystone retaining walls are also very popular for their appealing design. Retaining walls can be tall and thick if needed, and we will scope our the appropriate dimensions in our recommendations.





The cost of retaining walls vary due to the requested material used, length and height of the wall, and many other potential complications like hard-to-work landscapes, or unique artistic additions. Our best advice when estimating your retaining wall is to ask a professional company such as the Design 4 You Remodeling team. We have years of experience working with retaining walls as architects and designers, and properly estimating your potential hardscaping cost is our expertise. We can also help you determine and obtain the correct permits for your retaining wall in San Diego. Generally if they are over 3-4 feet they need an engineer and permitting. We can assist you with all of these details and help organize the project with your dedicated project manager.


Retaining walls come in many shapes and sizes to fit a particular landscape. They also can be constructed using different materials. The three most common types of materials used in retaining walls include concrete, masonry, and stone. Often a combination is used, depending on the location of the wall, how long you want it to last, and the aesthetic value required from the homeowner. The technical types of retaining walls include keystone retaining walls, gravity retaining walls, stone block retaining walls, concrete retaining walls, garden retaining walls, ledgestone, slope retaining walls, cantilever retaining walls, 90 degree retaining walls, stacked stone retaining walls, sheet piling retaining walls, Melville retaining walls, Graphix retaining walls, highland stone retaining walls, stackable retaining walls, and anchor retaining walls.


Like all things that live an outdoor life, retaining walls need maintenance and repair over time. Cracks can form in the bricks, stones, or cement, or leaks and full breaks can occur due to storm surge or natural earth movement. Our team will help you with the execution of any landscaping wall repairs or remodels on your property. Price varies depending on a number of factors, and we are transparent in every step of the way. Often, due to safety, replacements are often recommended for retaining walls instead of spot repairs. In addition, trying to match the wear on rocks or blocks is like trying to match new paint to a 10 year old car, the sun and weather's aesthetic effects are universal.
