Landscape retaining walls are utilized to increase usable space, provide additional elevations, seating, and planting areas. Materials can be wood, concrete, block, brick, natural stone, etc.
Function and beauty can come together in a properly designed and constructed retaining wall. While they may look simple, retaining walls are carefully engineered structures that hold back tons of soil, fighting a never-ending war against gravity. They can transform a back yard with steep slopes of unusable land into a beautiful area for outdoor living. They can also be used to keep soil from sliding away from foundations and to prevent erosion.
