Information about Retaining Walls
Retaining walls are critical landscape features that must be professionally designed and built by certified experts. They are commonly installed to improve the aesthetics of a property or landscaped area. These features can effortlessly highlight the beauty of specific landscape elements. For example, they are best used in flower gardens and other softscape features to make these elements stand out. But these types of walls are not only added in landscapes for their aesthetic benefits. They help improve safety in the landscape by preventing soil erosion. Eroding soil can cause damage to plantings, outdoor features, and even pose safety risks to people.
