A simple, small and basic retaining wall may cost you around $1,000, while a more elaborate one can cost a bit more, especially when it requires backfills and excavations.

You can opt to use concrete, bricks, precast blocks, concrete masonry unit, weathering steel, or gabion as your retaining wall material. Some local contractors also maximize materials like timbers, rocks, and boulders. Although some are easy to use and can serve their purpose, some of these materials can be found lying around, cost less, and have a shorter life span.
