A wall with multiple purposes
The main purpose of retaining walls is typically to provide strong support and reduce erosion for soil-based gardens or steeply-sloped landscapes.
Retaining walls are structures that hold soil on one side and are free standing on the other. As an excellent bonus, retaining walls add an artistic depth to your landscape design.
Where to integrate a retaining wall into your landscape
- Uneven ground
- Cut-and-fill hillside
- Create a lawn conducive to sports
- Level out ground to support a living space
- Elevate planting area, improving drainage
- Create a planting bed
- Add interest to a flat yard
