How we can help?
Retaining walls serve many purposes, from protecting areas of property from sliding soil to holding a foundation in place. They can also be used to add surface area to property boundaries or to simply preserve the ground that exists. And because retaining walls are often one of the most visible elements of a home's exterior landscape, most homeowners want them to be as beautiful as they are functional. Luckily, there are several types of materials available for use in construction, making it easy to get the job done for even the tightest budget.
While having a beautifully finished wall is of paramount importance, it is integral to weigh function equally with form. For example, using wood for the structure may not be the best choice if extreme moisture is a factor, as termites and wood rot may sharply decrease its lifespan. A good contractor can help choose the material with the best combination of looks and functionality, ensuring an aesthetically pleasing final product that lasts for years.
