Title: Benefits of Retaining walls

Benefits of Retaining walls
  • Have you been thinking of installing a retaining
    wall for your house or business? Retaining walls
    are not only for creating a beautiful landscape,
    but also serve some functionality. The benefits
    of retaining walls include erosion control,
    flooding prevention, and adding value to your

Added Home Value
  • Many home improvements will increase the overall
    value of your home, and a retaining wall is no
    exception. Adding a retaining wall is an easy,
    affordable way to increase your home's value. If
    you're adding a wall of natural materials to your
    garden, you'll find it easy to make adjustments
    or change the wall if necessary. Another way
    retaining walls increase your home's value is by
    adding versatility to the space around your
    house if you choose to have separate vegetable
    and flower gardens, for example, you can separate
    them with a simple and attractive rock wall.

Wide Variety of Choices
  • Aside from the vast selection of rock types and
    other materials from which to create your
    retaining wall, there are also several different
    methods of construction. You may choose to build
    a gabion wall (a stone-filled mesh fit to shape),
    a dry stack wall (made from stones without
    mortar, so they can be moved), or a traditional
    stone-and-mortar wall. You may also choose to
    build your wall from ecologically friendly
    products that are equally hardy, as well as being
    economical and kind to the planet.

Low Maintenance and Durable
  • Retaining walls are extremely low maintenance
    once you have constructed the wall you want, you
    really don't have to do anything else to keep it
    up, unless you use a dry stack wall and plan on
    moving the stones around occasionally. The level
    of maintenance you desire is up to you, but it's
    safe to say you can leave your wall alone once
    you've built it to your liking. Retaining walls
    made of natural products are meant to stand up to
    harsh weather conditions, so they rarely, if
    ever, require repair. Walls made of natural
    materials are often local to the area, so the
    materials are accustomed to weather conditions.
    You won't have to spend time or money replacing
    or repairing your wall, making it a great

Highly Functional
  • Retaining walls are very functional once it's
    constructed properly, a wall can withstand tons
    of weight. When built correctly, a retaining wall
    can hold back earth or water for decades without
    any problems or maintenance. Walls can provide
    structural slope retention from 50 to 70 degrees.
    You can use them to create space-saving,
    eye-catching vertical gardens, and many of the
    environmentally-friendly walls are installed
    faster and more economically than traditional

Ecologically Friendly
  • Many ecologically-minded consumers are turning
    toward naturally-built retaining walls, because
    they use up to 50 less concrete than traditional
    walls. They also result in reduced disruption to
    the natural vegetation of the area, and reduce
    storm water runoff. Retaining walls made of
    sustainable products are as long-lasting,
    beautiful, and affordable as traditional walls,
    but fit in better with the natural surroundings
    of your home, and have less of an impact on the

  • Adding a retaining wall to your property is a
    beautiful, simple, and durable solution to your
    landscaping problems, whether you wish to make an
    attractive addition to your home to increase its
    resale value, or you need to hold back some earth
    or water and want an appealing option. Choosing
    green materials for your retaining wall is a
    great way to improve your environment while
    improving your home's appearance and value.

Reduce Damage
  • Do you have beautiful landscaping that keeps
    getting destroyed by either the mower or by
    people walking on it? Retaining walls are able to
    minimize this damage by encouraging others to go
    around the landscaping. When mowing, you dont
    need to worry about accidentally running over
    your plants when trying to mow the edge.
