Whether it is one foot or twelve feet, a retaining wall is typically used to solve major landscaping problems such as soil erosion and flooding. However, a retaining wall that is well-constructed and installed by a landscaping professional can add both beauty and function. The question is: do you need a retaining wall on your personal property?
Here are some top signs you need to consider this valued landscaping element:
#1 Your Property is on a Hill or Steep Slope
A retaining can create a level space to make your property more usable, whether it is a patio, more parking, a sport court or just an even grass area.
#2 You Need to Prevent Erosion and Flooding
If your landscape is displaying signs of erosion, such as migrating soil/mulch, exposed tree roots and loss of dirt around your home foundation, a retaining wall can prevent further damage.
#3 You Need to Control and Divert Rainwater
One of the ways that a retaining wall can prevent erosion is by diverting or channeling falling rainwater into a more optimal place on your property that doesn’t cause damage to your home or landscape.
#4 You Want to Add Definition and Esthetics to an Existing Hill
Retaining walls come in various sizes and materials. A retaining wall can define a slope on your property and provide multiple levels or terraces for a more aesthetically-pleasing yard.
#5 You Need Extra Seating
Believe it or not, a well-engineered retaining wall can help create unique spaces on your commercial or residential landscape while adding places for you and your guests to sit at the same time.
