If you live in the mountains, you may already own a retaining wall. There are four main reasons for installing a retaining wall:
Structural support—Retaining walls can hold up a large parking lot, building, or a hillside. Building a retaining wall that will last and hold up to the desired function requires an experienced installer. The steps to install a retaining wall may be simple but all steps must be completed correctly or the wall will eventually fail.
Preventing erosion and water flow control—Retaining walls are a great long-term solution to treat erosion and flood issues. Built correctly retaining walls can stop and prevent future erosion and water issues.
Providing a new functional space to your yard—Most people in this area deal with some degree of yard slope. You may own 1 acre of land but only ¼ of it is usable due to the grade of the land. A retaining wall can add usable land by building up an area or to dig out an area for a patio, lawn, driveway, planting bed, and more.
Aesthetics—From concrete block to natural stone a retaining wall can create a beautiful addition to your home. From retaining to freestanding, retaining walls can make a huge different in the function and the aesthetics of your property and home.
Choosing a qualified retaining wall installer should be your priority.
