You might be thinking about adding a retaining wall to your landscaping. These walls add character and beauty to your yard, and they also can serve a useful purpose. For instance, they often allow steeper cuts to a slope, allowing you more usable space.
- Block retaining walls, which are concrete masonry units, are easy to work with and easily available. These walls can look attractive and also have strong structural integrity.
- Concrete retaining walls are very commonly seen along freeways, though they can be tricky for residential use. In areas where there is heavy rain or extreme weather conditions, many landscapers avoid this type of wall. Cracks can be a problem for these types of walls.
- Wood retaining walls are another option. These walls can blend more naturally into your landscaping. They are generally easy to construct, relatively inexpensive, and can look very beautiful.
- Gabion retaining walls are constructed from wire mesh or wire and then filled with rocks or rubble. This can be a great eco-friendly option; you can utilize crushed recycled concrete in place of rocks.
