One of the main features of retaining walls is to provide structural support to prevent soil erosion and runoff. It provides and excellent barrier when you have steep slopes and hills on your property that provide ample opportunity for soil to slides and landslides. If your property is suffering from soil degradation, you may consider calling a residential masonry contractor to evaluate your topography. We often work hand-in-hand with landscapers and arborists to ensure that retaining walls provide the sound structural support you need for safety on your property. We offer a variety of styles that provide better conditions for your landscaping to grow and thrive.
Minimize Soil Erosion
If you are living on a property with steep hills and slopes, without the benefit of a retaining wall, then you likely have seen your fair share of soil erosion. Soil is naturally affected by erosion from weather conditions, but some areas are under more strain without the help of interventions like masonry. We are easily able to hold soil in place to prevent landslides that can lead to bigger environmental issues. This is particularly true of areas that do not have the benefit of shrubbery and trees to stop the flow of soil leaving the area. We can help reduce the toll of soil erosion on your landscaping and your property at large with the construction of residential masonry.
Additional Functional Space
Our retaining walls have a two-fold benefit of helping to control environmental damage and providing additional functional space. Slopes and hills are often difficult spaces to use for landscaping and planning social spaces. But retaining walls can also be used as hardscaping to provide seating or providing useable land for extending your green thumb. We can create beautiful terracing that function as additional space for planting and many of our clients have also used these spaces for additional patios. We have a wide range of unique ideas or we can execute ones that fulfill your vision to enhance the overall look of your property.
Masonry walls can create a beautiful focal point on your property that add another dimension to your landscaping. Whether it is brick or concrete, there are a wide range of styles and colors that can be employed to increase the aesthetic appeal of you retaining walls. No longer is concrete just the boring off white color used for commercial sidewalks. You are able to choose from concrete stamping and customized colors as well as brick pavers. In the end, your retaining wall will be a functional feature with wow factor.
