Retaining Wall Installation can add great curb appeal to your yard, but it’s also important to build a strong structure that will last. Landworks can assist you in your retaining wall installation and design for a solid structure, in character and harmony with your home.
Retaining walls are usually thought of as utilitarian and for merely holding back soil. But you can use them to create beautiful outdoor living spaces and incorporate multi-use spaces. There are many choices when you are exploring design ideas for a retaining wall installation. Retaining walls can be built with rocks, boulders, pavers, concrete blocks, poured concrete, or treated timbers. Landworks has retaining wall design professionals to help you discover your options to create a beautiful and solid structure.
In general, retaining walls are used when one area of ground is at a different height than an adjacent area of ground, and the slope between them is too steep to be stable on its own. A retaining wall is used to hold the slope in place, support the higher level of ground, and in many cases can be created to display a landscaping bed full of colorful trees, shrubs and flowers.
