Retaining Walls

Retaining Walls Are Great For Yard Protection and Outdoor Style/

While a retaining wall works great to protect your yard and home from soil erosion and other elemental damage, retaining walls can add style to your exterior living space, and complement your outdoor décor in a functional and aesthetic way.

Retaining Wall Ideas: How To Select the Best Wall For Your Home

When selecting a retaining wall for functional purposes, you'll need a wall that has reinforcement components that are durable, and can withstand weather conditions such as heavy wind, rain, and snow.

If you live in an area that's subject to extreme weather conditions such as flooding as a result of heavy snow and rain, you'll need to make sure that your retaining wall(s) can handle these occurrences, and will protect your landscape, as well as your home, from foundational damage.

If you live in an area that doesn't experience harsh weather but rather a calm climate, building a retaining wall is still important for structural reasons, as well as decorative ones. Retaining walls are not the concrete slabs of yesteryear; existing just to keep soil, rocks, and water in place. Retaining walls today are decorative landscaping additions that can add value to your home.

Building a Retaining Wall: The Best Areas For Outdoor Living Spaces

A retaining wall is ideal to highlight and elevate a garden, while it can also function as a terrace wall to create living space for patios, courtyards, and BBQ areas. If you have a sloping landscape, a retaining wall is great to line flights of stairs, and keep plants and other flora from dominating walking areas.

Retaining walls are also great for outdoor water features, as they allow fountains or waterfalls to be raised above the ground with protection. Man-made ponds can also benefit from retaining walls for structural protection, as well as decoration.
