Investing in retaining walls can help to prevent soil erosion, manage water runoff and provide you with usable land. As an added benefit erecting retaining walls can provide your outdoor living space with more room without having to sacrifice the garden.
Retaining walls are walls meant to hold back soil or water. To construct such walls, you require the professionalism of expert craftsmen and masons who plan which type of retaining wall suits your needs and designs a plan that will last. Some of the wall options that are available include:
- Gravity walls which retain soil by relying on the weight of the wall material which could be anything from a stack of large rocks to a paved wall.
- Pilling walls use long “piles” which form the wall above but are also dug deep into the ground giving them greater capacity to hold back soil. These walls can be made of metal and treated lumber.
- Anchored walls with an anchor wrapped around the wall, this option is the strongest type of retaining wall and is perfect for steep hills. It can be made from a variety of materials and is sure to give you all the room you need.
