Retaining Walls

A retaining wall is a man-made landscaping structure built to keep dirt from falling into a walkway or road. There are a few types of landscape retaining walls available. These include brick, concrete, rock, wood fence, and natural shrubs. Each type of wall has a specific role and unique characteristics. The homeowner should select the retaining wall based on the presentation he desires for the home.

A concrete retaining wall is a large concrete fabrication designed to manage dirt and water runoff from a building site. This form of retaining wall is often seen on interstate highways across the United States. The concrete walls are also used to limit noise pollution caused by traffic. Some concrete landscape retaining walls are a high as 30 feet (9.1 m) tall, which has the added benefits of privacy and protection.

Many landscape retaining walls are made from brick or stucco. These walls can be designed to match the brick and outward appearance of the home. A brick retaining wall will require significant prepping and construction time.

One of the most natural-looking landscape retaining walls is a rock wall. This provides a powerful-looking presentation and makes the wall appear to be natural. Rock retaining wallsare most often seen in the mountain terrain because they match the surrounding area.
