Our experts can help your business or home prevent erosion by installing a retaining wall. Retaining walls are a great commodity to have when your property has slopes or hills. In addition to preventing erosion on your property, retaining walls are beneficial in a variety of other ways, including:
Retaining walls help level out your property and become a necessary tool for holding back soil and preventing erosion in areas of elevation changes. Making the choice to have a retaining wall installed will aid your property by adding beauty and reinforcement to your natural elements.
Seating walls are not typically used in the prevention of soil erosion the way retaining walls are. However, they are used as an option for added seating around other hardscaping materials in your yard. Seating walls are short retaining walls meant to be used as a place for guests to sit, and are generally added around outdoor kitchens, patios, or fire features.
Seating walls are a natural way of adding seating around your outdoor environment.
A popular thing to do is to have seating walls double as landscaping beds, by adding small beds on the ends or in the back on the seating wall.
