Should You Install Retaining Walls?

Retaining walls are an ideal way to take advantage of hills and slopes.

Hills and slopes are a lovely feature in a backyard, but can be difficult to landscape around. Between rain runoff and erosion, maintaining an attractive garden or landscape with a hill is challenging at best. By adding a retaining wall to your yard, you can prevent many headaches! Of course, retaining walls are great for adding variation to flat areas as well.

Benefits of Retaining Walls

There are many benefits to installing a retaining wall in your yard aside from managing erosion and runoff issues.

  • Low Maintenance: Once built, retaining walls require little to no maintenance to upkeep. Stone walls will be structurally sound and able to withstand all weather for years to come.
  • They Add Value to Your Home:  You can add curb appeal by installing retaining walls thus turning a hilly landscape into a beautiful garden area. Whether or not you have a hill, they can be added to any area of your yard.
  • Terracing: For hilly areas, you can create a perfectly flat area for a great home garden or terrace by using a retaining wall. Terracing is great for flat areas, too. If your yard doesn’t have good natural drainage, an elevated garden with a retaining wall could be the perfect solution.
