The Benefits of Retaining Walls


Retaining Walls are not only a practical method of holding back parts of your yard but they can also allow you to use your outdoor spaces in a whole new way. Consider these advantages of retaining walls below.

A Variety of Materials

There are many materials that can be used to create retaining walls to give you the look you desire. Some to consider include:

  • Natural stone
  • Manufactured stone
  • Bricks
  • Retaining wall blocks
  • Wood Beams

Slows Down Erosion

Whether your yard is prone to flooding or if you simply have minor drainage issues, a retaining wall is a perfect solution. Having a retaining wall can elevate parts of your yard, or create a natural slope to encourage drainage to a particular area. 

If you have a newly planted garden, you can also build a retaining wall to encourage the soil to stay in place, reducing erosion and keeping your plants healthy.
