Completely change the look of your yard

Retaining walls can drastically add to the look of a homeowner’s property, add to the beauty of the landscape, and help you gain more space in your yard.

The main purpose of a retaining wall is to retain soil; however, retaining walls can also be focal point for homeowners that are looking to spruce up their yard.

A retaining wall can help bring out the look of flowerbeds and surrounding landscape, and the height of the wall can make your entire property stand out. 

These are some of the most common purposes, as well as features, for your retaining wall:

Retaining Walls Installed Right

In order for your retaining wall to last, it needs to be installed correctly and using the right materials, more so when you live in Fraser Valley’s wet climate.

If you have a retaining wall that’s recently failed or is damaged, you should address it before it causes more harm to your landscape. In building your retaining wall, we use top quality materials, excavate enough soil, and use a gravel foundation to make sure you get a product that will last you a lifetime.

On top of having a feature that lasts, a retaining wall can also make your outdoor space look stylish. Imagine a terraced garden with all your favorite plants, custom lighting, and decorative gravel or pebbles. Add some class and style to your outdoors and enjoy a stable backyard that leaves everyone in awe.

What Our Clients Say

Browse our client testimonials below for some insight on how we treat our customers, and the kind of quality of work you can expect when working with us.


We hired Sam and his team to put drainage in our backyard that badly floods every fall/winter, and to also to removed somme very over grown trees.

Right from the start, Back 40 was extremely professional, thorough and great at communication. As with most construction/reno jobs there are surprises along the way.

Sam was great at explaining our options and working with our budget, while making sure we were setting our yard up for future success and fewer problems.

They went above and beyond. As they state on their website, they really do challenge the status quo and look at things differently.

Because of that, we have a drainage system better than any out there.

We have more work to do in the future and Sam and his team at Back 40 will be the first people we call when the time comes.



I have a 2 acre yard that was over grown and I need of clearing. Sam came and gave a clear plan and good quote and began work a few days later.

The area when from a overgrown jungle to a perfectly smooth field that you could play golf on( he said it was because of his power rake but I don’t know what that is).

The material was removed without any mess on the driveway and the job was done under the estimate timeline!

I would recommend back 40 to anyone who wants a professional job with a personal touch for big and small projects.



We hired Sam at Back 40 Landscaping to complete some gardening work in both the front and back of our property.

He regraded our yard and added a few flower beds along our fence. Sam was prompt, professional, and did the job both meticulously and quickly.

We were incredibly impressed by his friendliness and willingness to offer an honest opinion. I would absolutely recommend Back 40 for any of your landscaping projects!
