Landscape Wall: The Benefits of Having a Retaining Wall on Your Property | Rockville, MD

Oct 24, 2014 | Gardens, Lawns

When landscaping your yard, there are many design elements that you can choose to incorporate into your property. One design element that can add to the beauty, functionality, and design of your yard is a landscape retaining wall. Adding a retaining wall can be extremely beneficial to you; here are just a few of the benefits a retaining wall can provide.


Prevent Erosion

One of the primary reasons homeowners will choose to install a retaining wall on their property is to prevent erosion from occurring on slopped areas or in any areas prone to erosion. In fact, retaining walls are the best lines of defense against erosion and the effects of land movement.


Make More Usable Gardening Space

For homeowners whose property is extremely sloped, it can seem as if their yard space is unusable. Tiered retaining/landscaping walls can create useable space for the placements of gardens, play space, and can even create space for the creation of a patio. This can make retaining walls doubly functional for homeowners.


Create Focal Points

Adding hardscaping can add to the beauty and contrast of your yard. Landscaping walls can draw visitors eyes to specific areas of your landscaping you may want to highlight. Thusly, landscaping walls can give you the opportunity to define focal points in your yard. Use garden spaces created by landscaping walls to create beautiful, unique flowerbeds that will enhance your yard space.

Landscape walls can be a great addition to any yard space due to the multiple functions they can perform. Not only can they protect your yard from erosion, but also they can make your yard more functional and appealing for everyday use. Contact us to find out more about the benefits you and your family could gain from adding retaining walls to your to your property.
