While retaining walls are typically built to serve the purpose of retaining soil, they can also be a beautiful
design addition to your yard.
With careful planning, you can add retaining walls to your
yard that are both functional and beautiful. The advantage
of adding retaining walls either with natural products
(boulders, stone) or man made (railroad ties, manufactured
wall stone), is that it can serve to improve both the look of
your yard and increase value of the home. With so many
designs and feature options that can be added to the allure
(such as water), retaining walls can help make the most of
intimate living outdoor area, and add much needed usuable
space to your yard.
