Retaining walls are beautiful and functional elements of quality hardscaping. They can accent your landscaping and reduce erosion. Custom retaining walls help round out your custom landscaping design and protect your investments. A retaining wall is typically made of concrete, rocks, stones, or other solid materials that help retain the soil in a sloped area. These walls can also be used as added privacy or to transform landscape beds to benefit their natural surroundings.
Benefits of a Retaining Wall
Retaining walls improve your landscape and property in many ways, including:
- Prevents soil erosion in your yard by supporting elevation changes throughout your property
- Increases the stability of your home’s landscape
- Aesthetic changes like tiered landscaping, unique landscape planting arrangements, and additional stone hardscaping
- Changes the functionality of your outdoor living space by sectioning off a patio area or creating a small garden area
- Edges a garden area in your yard to separate it from the rest of the area
- Creates a site for an outdoor kitchen or outdoor grill area
- Forms a visually interesting curving garden around the length of your backyard or front yard
Trust Carroll Landscaping to Install Your Retaining Walls
Retaining walls might look simple once installed, but they are incredibly complex to plan and map out. Maintaining and adjusting your grade during installation involves countless small details. A retaining wall is only effective if installed correctly in the right area, so trusting a professional with the job is critical. We take care of the site preparation and proper installation, always considering grading and drainage along the way.
Retaining Walls Combine Form and Function
Residential retaining walls transform your yard from a chaotic, hilly mess into an ordered and structured environment. They can be used to craft attractive landscapes that create space where there was none before. Retaining walls can hold back the soil to allow for entertainment areas. You can put seating or decorations around the wall’s base for added appeal around a barbecue or swimming pool area. Creative use of retaining walls can transform almost any uneven area into an eye-catching space.
