Building quality from the ground up

Retaining walls and hardscaping to make the most of your property

If like many local homeowners, you dream of creating more usable space from your sloped or hillside lot, well-engineered retaining walls are a vital component.

In addition to creating room to garden or play, properly constructed retaining walls can improve drainage and prevent erosion, but that’s also exactly why professional expertise and local knowledge is a must – especially in areas like the Pacific Northwest, where heavy rainfall can wreak havoc.

Born and raised on Mercer Island, Harry Sidhu has had a lifelong passion for the work, and he’s brought together an experienced team in Seattle Rockeries, which designs and constructs beautiful, long-lasting landscape architecture such as retaining walls, stairways, patios, pavers, fences, yardscapes, rockeries, rock gardens, flagstone and more.

“I grew up in the rockery business with my father and look forward to bringing that knowledge to my customers,” Sidhu says, noting his team collectively shares decades of local industry experience.

Experience matters

An accredited local business with the Better Business Bureau and member of the Master Builders Association and Washington Association of Landscape Professionals, that depth of experience is vital not only in creating projects people will be proud of, but also finding ways to expand their living space or shore up environmentally critical or sensitive areas.

Geotechnical expertise is vital. “We focus on the drainage system, which is critical to a long-lasting, stable project. Critical slopes and environmentally critical areas are part of our specialty, and we have geotechnical engineers on standby,” Sidhu says.​

“By stabilizing the land with multi-elevation landscape features and using interlocking materials and draining systems to flow water away from your property, we can make your entire landscape accessible to your family.”

Patios, driveways and hardscaping

Beyond retaining walls, Seattle Rockeries is also your source for paver patios, driveways and decorative landscapes using quality stones and boulders.

Permeable pavers are another popular hardscaping option, allowing water to drain into the soil and water table, rather than adding to the storm drain runoff.
