Retaining Walls are Far More Than Just a Pretty Face
Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Tuesday, 24 May , 2016
Retaining walls are a fantastic solution for refreshing your landscaping – plus they do indeed add value to your home. In this article, we’ll talk about why.
Benefits of Retaining Walls
Functionality Retaining walls can be used for a multitude of purposes, including making a garden really pop, controlling erosion and preventing flooding. While stress from the elements can cause soil to shift, retaining walls offer support so that the soil is retained.
Home Value Yard beauty is definitely enhanced with retaining walls. You can arrange the wall system in a host of imaginative ways – from creating raised flower beds to establishing levels of interest on a sloped yard. Because of the versatility of retaining walls, prospective home buyers are often intrigued with how they can arrange already existing wall systems.
Low Maintenance Unless you plan on moving the individual stones around on occasion, retaining walls require very little if any maintenance. Retaining walls comprised of natural products are built to withstand harsh weather conditions. Because the materials for retaining walls rarely need replacement, they are a fantastic investment in your home.
Variety of Options Beyond the wide variety of rock selection for your wall, there’s also different types of retaining wall construction. For example, a dry stack wall is made without mortar, making them easier to move, while a gabion wall is made of stone-filled mesh so that it can be more easily shaped.

Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
