Building your retaining wall right the first time
A retaining wall is built to help stem the erosion of property, to protect a yard or to help create a flat space on a sloped piece of land. However, it does not have to be an eyesore because it’s functional. Perhaps you are not only looking for purpose from your retaining wall but also an added attractive element to your landscape. You can have the both of best worlds.
Retaining walls are built using materials such as wood, stone, interlocking blocks, bricks, or poured concrete. Each comes with its own benefits and associated costs. Textured retaining wall blocks are available in different colors that can brighten any yard. Different types of colored stones can be used to create patterns in the wall. A wood retaining wall such as redwood brings a nice look to an otherwise boring wall.
