Should You Have a Retaining Wall Installed?

Honeysuckle Nursery & Design Retaining Wall

A retaining wall won’t just elevate the look of your property, it will prevent it from water damage and erosion, too!

Retaining walls have become a popular landscaping option for many homeowners, and for good reason! These fantastic additions are more than just majestic and stunning to look at, they have several functional benefits that can keep your home and yard looking pristine for years to come. If you’ve been considering having a retaining wall installed then it’s time to answer the question—should you?

Water Management

The first great benefit of a retaining wall is water management. During heavy rains and flooding, water run-off can create a lot of problems, many of them unseen until the damage has become extensive. Don’t wait until your home is in dire need of repair—a retaining wall will divert the run-off and keep your home in top form.

Erosion Mitigation

Soil is susceptible to erosion, it’s just science. Over time, this erosion will cause your lawn to shift and it could create unsightly bumps and craters around your property. Erosion is common around the foundation of homes as well, weakening the area. Retaining walls will hold the soil in place, mitigating erosion and keeping everything in its place.

Great Aesthetic

Retaining walls look amazing, adding a significant boost to the look of any outdoor space. There are many different options for materials, so you’ll be able to find what works for you and your property to achieve the best possible aesthetic. As an added bonus, a beautiful retaining wall will raise the value and desirability of your home, making it easy to sell if you ever find yourself moving.

Say Nope to the Slope

A sloped yard can be a major pain when you want to utilize it for almost anything. It’s hard to put chairs down without the risk of them falling over, a tilted fire pit is far from safe, and tables on the slope will send all of your food and drinks to the bottom of the hill. Retaining walls allow you to flatten your property so that you can install other great landscaping and hardscaping such as paver walkways, a fire pit, an outdoor kitchen, or a gorgeous swimming pool. Once you say nope to the slope, it’ll be easier than ever to design the perfect outdoor space for you and any guests you host.
