A retaining wall is used to support the soil on your landscape. Carroll Landscaping is known for installing retaining walls that are pleasing to the eye and beneficial to any homeowner or business. Keep reading for reasons why you should install a retaining wall.
Retaining walls help to keep soil in place. This is especially useful if your property is on a hill where your soil often slides forward. A retaining wall provides a protective barrier to your landscape. Transitions from wet to dry seasons can take a toll on soil and cause it to break down or degrade. Therefore, the protective barrier that a retaining wall can provide can do wonders for your landscape.
Stops Soil Erosion and Protects against Floods
Wind and water can help to erode the soil on any landscape. If your landscape is barren without trees or shrubs, a retaining wall is necessary to hold the soil in place. Pipes and channels can be installed into a retaining wall in order to make sure that water soaks into the soil and does not run off the property. During a heavy storm, it makes a difference if your soil is soaking up the nutrients that water provides versus heavy amounts of water running into the street or making your lawn or garden area look muddy.
Functionality and Aesthetic Value
Retaining walls looks very neat and does not take up a lot of space. This is an unobtrusive way to add style to your landscape. You can plant trees, shrubs, and flowers around your wall or even grow an entire garden. A retaining wall provides structure for your patio or section off an area for an outdoor grill. Carroll Landscaping provides tiered landscaping, unique landscape planting arrangements, and additional stone hardscaping.
