Where Are Retaining Walls Required?

A retaining wall is a perfect feature in areas where you want to prevent soil erosion. Many properties have slopes and that makes it very difficult to build any kind of outdoor features such as an outdoor kitchen, a driveway, pathway or patio etc. This is when that space would have to be excavated to build the feature.

However, the exposed soil and rock can pose a danger to the integrity of your landscaping and the elements on it. This is where retaining wall installation comes into the picture. These specially engineered walls can also be built in spaces where you want to create sitting areas or view decks.

In fact, retaining wall design is also a lot about incorporating dual functionality in these installations. So your landscape designer may incorporate inbuilt seating or even a planter in the wall structure. In many ways, this also becomes a space-saving feature in outdoor kitchens and areas where fire pits have been built. In some instances, recessed lighting may also be incorporated into the wall to add to its function and beauty.

Building A Retaining Wall

The construction of a retaining wall requires special knowledge and the company that handles the construction for you should be able to get expert masons to handle the job for you. It’s important that very high-quality materials are used in the work as that will help add to the longevity of the installation and will be able to withstand the soil pressure as well as the harsh outdoor conditions.

The concrete wall blocks are also called Concrete Masonry Units or CMUs and these are essentially modular blocks made of concrete. They are strong and durable and you can build very long-lasting walls with them.
