RETAINING WALLS - BLOCK, STONE, VENEER, TIMBER
If you live in WNC you probably are already an owner of a retaining wall. There are four main reasons for installing a retaining wall:
- Structural support - Retaining walls can hold up large parking lots, building, or a hillside. Building a retaining wall that will last and hold up to the desired function requires a professional and the correct installation. The steps to install a retaining wall may be simple but all steps must be completed correctly or the wall will eventually fail.
- Preventing erosion and water flow control - Retaining walls are a great long-term solution to treat erosion and flood issues. Built correctly retaining walls can stop and prevent future erosion and water issues.
- Providing a new functional space to your yard - Most people in this area deal with some degree of yard slope. You may own 1 acre of land but only ¼ of it is usable due to the grade of the land. A retaining wall can add usable land by building up an area or to dig out an area for a patio, lawn, driveways, planting beds, and more.
- Aesthetics - From concrete block to natural stone a retaining wall can create a beautiful addition to your home. From retaining to freestanding, retaining walls can make a huge different in the function and the aesthetics of your property and home.
Another beautiful material to update your landscape with is natural stone. Natural stone is an organic material that can be used for walls, patios, steps, walkways, rock gardens, boulder placements, and much more. From flagstone to 2 ton boulders natural stone can enhance any area dramatically. The cost of using this material varies depending on size and type of application. Stone can sometimes be a cheaper option though for a permanent structure stone can also be on the higher end because of machine and labor costs. That being said, the maintenance and durability will always outweigh other materials. The initial cost may be higher but in the end this organic material can save you thousands of dollars.
