Often used on properties that have sloping grounds, a retaining wall is designed to prevent soil erosion and possible landslides that in many cases destroy any remaining landscape. A retaining wall also offers a wonderful aesthetic impact if you are looking to upgrade your landscape and add a point of difference to your project.
Add Value To Your Home
Not only does a retaining wall help to protect your landscape from erosion, it can also increase your home’s value. Adding a unique beauty to your home’s landscape, they can be made from different materials to suit most peoples taste and the condition of your yard. Stone being a stronger material may boast the most support, but these landscape features can be made of river stone, boulders, aged wood or even decorative brick.
Add Dimension To A Large Yard
Large yards can sometimes appear bare and unimpressive, but rather than planting slow growing trees or spend a fortune on plants to fill and break up a large area, a retaining wall can be a cost-effective addition adding much-needed dimension to a space. A garden wall is ideal for dividing a large yard or framing a home and offers an appealing textured element. The wall can be a few feet high or several metres long, or it can span the entire length of your yard. You can also install more than one retaining wall on various slopes adding depth and dimension.
Use A Retaining Wall In Many Different Ways
There are many different options when it comes to retaining walls. You can build around existing garden beds, under trees, edge your lawn with them or grow vines over them; They can be used to support your plants, and you can even install planters in your retaining wall for some added colour with flowers or a perfect spot for herbs.
