Retaining & Retention Walls
Retention walls were initially used for support and to control soil erosion. However, modern-day hardscaping has included it as one of the ideas that you can use to add final touches on your yard to improve curb appeal. These days, you don’t have to be in rugged terrain to use the retention wall. You can have a flat yard, but still, use retention walls to design your flower beds. Of course, you will need experts to help you through the design.
Retaining walls are common these days but you may not realize their existence may be because you have never been keen. We are sure that as we speak now there is one in your neighborhood. You may need a retention wall as a decoration, but some circumstances will make you need one. But how do you know that you need one? Let us configure it out from the uses of this structure as highlighted below:
Creates usable land – Retention walls have been used by farmers from different parts of the world to create farmland on the hillsides. The same can be done in your landscape. These walls are constructed to create for you space where you can plant trees or even erect other hardscape structures.
Control soil erosion – Water runoffs are major problems for many landscapes. Even on your property, runoff might be causing damages by washing away the topsoil from your garden. Retention walls can be the best way to control it while adding value to your landscape.
Extends outdoor living space – Retention walls can be a nice seating area depending on where it is located in your yard. The walls themselves can act as seats or you can put your furniture right at the base of the wall, maybe you can also erect a pergola above you for shade.
When is a retaining wall absolutely necessary?
When your home is located on the fault line, a retention wall becomes a necessity rather than a landscaping idea. Constructing a retention wall is the best way to add more stability to your home in case of earthquakes.
Landslides are common these days, and you don’t just know when you will become a casualty. If it occurs and threatens to tamper with your foundation, then you need to construct a retention wall for additional support and also to control soil erosion.
