Retaining walls not only make these spaces possible, but they can add a layered aesthetic that contributes to your property’s beauty while harnessing the natural elevation of your land.
They hold back raised land and prevent it from flowing into the spaces below so that you can enjoy a more practical, yet visually appealing, outdoor space.
Why Install A Retaining Wall?
Prevents Damage & Erosion
The leveling effect that the retaining walls have on hills slow down heavy rainfall that could cause a risk of flooding and erosion. Thus, having retaining walls helps to prevent any damage to your landscape. The flattened level ground also creates an ideal garden space for some beautiful flowers and other plants.
Creating Outdoor Areas
Wanting to create a manicured space in a landscape that features some slopes might be the biggest indicator that you need a retaining wall!
Retaining walls allow you to build driveways, walkways, and patios in places where you have a hill. They’ll keep the soil from spilling out onto these areas so you can maintain a beautiful, tidy outdoor space.
If you have a smaller outdoor space, you may want to consider building retaining walls so that you can relocate your plants and have a bigger patio or better walkways.
Some other reasons for installing retaining walls include wanting to create more usable land if your home is on top of a hill. Or, if your home is below a hill, you may have some problems with flooding that a retaining wall can help with.
Maybe you just want to install some small walls within your outdoor living space to neaten up your garden plants.
Whatever the reason, retaining walls are great features that have both practical and aesthetic benefits.
Interlocking Retaining Walls
At Buddha Builders, we specialize in interlocking pavers. We can easily create flowing wall features within your outdoor living space to maximize the space.
If your property has some sloped areas or you simply want to build some spaces to plant your favorite flowers and plants, you can create walls with interlocking blocks.
This is a very versatile type of retaining wall that is perfect for residential properties. With interlocking blocks, you can install neat, raised areas of soil and create a more interesting outdoor space.
These can also add a touch of luxury to your outdoor area with the right design!
With a natural stone look, these make the perfect addition to any outdoor space. They will keep your garden neat and tidy and help create a relaxing place for you, your family, and friends to enjoy.
While some may prefer concrete, interlocking retaining walls are just as effective and (in our opinion) look better!
