  • Structural support: One of the major functions of retaining walls is to help keep soil in place, preventing erosion and floods from damaging your property. This is crucial when a landscape is uneven or slopes, adding tons of function and making it possible to use the entire yard.
  • Visual interest: You can use a very functional retaining wall to create a very beautiful garden, using the height to your advantage to add texture and character on different levels. You can also add additional seating or other functional areas that let you extend your outdoor living space.
  • Personalization: Retaining walls serve an important function, but you can customize the way they look by choosing colors or stones that suit your personal style. There are a multitude of ways that a retaining wall can be designed to make your yard look unique.
  • Boost your property value: Retaining walls actually add value to your home by improving its curb appeal and adding versatility. If you are thinking of selling in the future, adding a retaining wall is a great way to make your home’s exterior stand out.
