Choosing the right retaining wall for your landscape
Retaining walls were first created to perform the simple and necessary task of holding back earth. And with good reason: Erosion is a natural process, but when it means soil being washed off your property—or worse, accumulating against the side of your home—serious problems can result. Of course, nowadays, we are also using retaining walls for aesthetic purposes. Known as garden walls, these retaining walls are not only functional, but they can also expand usable surface area, making them an essential component in many landscaping designs.
