What is the purpose of a retaining wall?
A retaining wall is a wall that retains earthly material such as soil and helps prevent it from sliding or eroding. Retaining walls also help prevent flooding by helping re-direct rainwater instead of it standing. In addition to helping prevent flooding and standing water, retaining walls also can create privacy. They can separate property lines and create a better view. These walls can also be used to elevate flower beds. Retaining walls also can increase property value!
Materials Used For Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are made up of many materials. DC Lawn and Landscape uses stone, pre-engineered blocks, pavers, brick, concrete, and wood. These materials are customizable in color varieties and sizes. These walls can also be designed and installed at various heights.
Added Extras to Boost Your Project
Retaining walls can be built with added steps and outdoor lighting depending on the location and the customer’s needs. We can also add landscaping or a flower bed too! Shorter retaining walls, also known as seating walls are often built into patios.
