Many homeowners don’t realize that retaining walls serve many purposes in their landscape design other than just another hardscape structure. In fact, well-designed and expertly built retaining walls are more impressive than the aesthetic feature seems. There are many uses for retaining walls in your residential landscape, so get in touch with Honeysuckle Nursery & Design to see how you can incorporate this attractive hardscape feature around your property.
Prevents and Controls Soil Erosion
Retaining walls are a practical and excellent option to prevent and control soil erosion around your landscape. If rainwater washing away the soil from around your property is a problem, it can mess up your beautifully planned landscape design and create other issues. Keep the earth where it needs to be by constructing retaining walls around your home or along hills in your yard.
Provide More Usable Land
Turn sloped areas around your property into more usable land by building retaining walls. This way, you can create more leveled areas, like terraces, to plant your garden or some landscaping shrubs. When your yard has limited space for your landscaping ideas, use this hardscape structure to make more usable and workable land.
Stabilizes The Landscape
Retaining walls stabilize the earth. As mentioned, water can erode away soil from your property, and you have to remember that gravity is working against your landscape as well. A strong retaining wall can redistribute the pressure and hold all of the earth in place. Just be sure to have a hardscaping professional design and build the structure for you so that it will also have adequate water drainage. Otherwise, collecting water pressure can build up too much and cause the poorly-planned wall to buckle.
