There are limitless possibilities when considering the design of your home or commercial landscaping. From irrigation to gardens, walkways to patios, and more, we see that retaining walls are a great addition to any landscape design.
Here we look at a few key reasons for installing retaining walls.
1. Tier Gardening
A great way to utilize the yard space for gardening where there are hills is installing layers or tiers of retaining walls to allow more usable growing space. This makes previously difficult to use landscape areas optimal for a wide range of plants and trees.
2. Preventing Dirt/Mud Movement
If you have a hilly or angled area on your property there may be some risk of rain damage and erosion due to weather. A retaining wall prevents hills from collapsing in on themselves which can be a great preventative measure that also enhances the look and feel of your yard.
3. With A Patio or Walkway
Using retaining walls to encompass a patio design or in conjunction with a walkway is one of the more common reasons for a new installation. Creating a path through your property or surrounding a patio with a well built retaining wall is a great option for many home owners looking to enhance their landscaping.
No matter which route you go when choosing your retaining wall design and considering the reasons you’d like one, it is paramount that you work with a landscaping contractor that specializes in this sort of work. Look for certifications from the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) and the National Concrete Masonry Association (NCMA).
