Reasons for a Retaining Wall

You may be under the impression that retaining walls only serve a decorative purpose, enhancing the appearance of properties. While retaining walls and freestanding walls may improve the curb appeal of a home or business, they serve many more purposes than aesthetics. Some reasons to consider adding a retaining wall to your outdoor area include:

Managing Water Runoff

Properties with slopes may experience flooding due to heavy rainfall trickling down. Retaining walls successfully slow the flow of rainwater and keep it from reaching your foundation, saving you from having to deal with structural concerns. To manage water runoff, a drain can be installed at the base of a retaining wall, allowing it to redirect the water.

Retaining Soil

Over time, the soil will naturally erode due to wind and rain. This erosion may lead to the ground weakening or cause foundation issues. Retaining walls help prevent this problem by keeping the soil where it needs to be, making erosion difficult.

Creating Additional Seating

Depending on where it is and its configuration, retaining walls may provide extra seating for your outdoor space. You can design this space as a usable outdoor area perfect for entertaining guests.

Having Less Maintenance

Lawns and gardens look beautiful but tend to require substantial upkeep. Retaining walls are a stunning addition to any property, offering stylish landscape designs, and usually call for very little maintenance. Their tested durability allows them to look great year after year without significant cleaning.
