Types of Retaining Walls at E&L Lawn Care
Retaining walls are used to laterally support soil. Well-built walls are structured to maintain this support in any kind of weather by providing outlets for water run-off and being angled in such a way that the weight of the soil isn’t too heavy.
The materials we use most frequently for retaining walls are concrete, stone, or brick. Some of the materials can be made into interlocking shapes that fit together tightly for maximum support and structure in the wall’s construction.
The Purpose of Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are designed for both appearance and for function, helping draw the eye and also provide some much needed structural support. There are three main uses of retaining walls on a property:
- Seating Space
- Outdoor Space Design
Downhill erosion is a serious problem if your building is located next to a steep hill without many plants to successfully hold onto the soil around them. Rain and gravity can weaken a building’s foundation by washing away the soil around it. Debris can also build up on your property thanks to uncontrolled erosion, and erosion has the potential to affect the look of the rest of your landscape.
If you want an outdoor living space like a patio or a new gardening bed, a retaining wall can help structure the land in such a way that those things are possible. Not only that, but the materials used to build the wall can match the design of the rest of your property.
