Have you been having issues with a part of your lawn eroding away? If so, then you could seriously benefit from having a retaining wall, or several, installed. Retaining walls can prevent erosion, but they don’t have to do so at the expense of your lawn’s look. Retaining walls can be constructed using a variety of materials, and there are a lot of design elements you can incorporate into your lawn’s landscape.
Retaining Walls Will Protect Your Lawn
If your lawn is eroding away, you need to stop it sooner rather than later. If you continue to allow your lawn to erode away, before too long there won’t be much lawn left. Adding a retaining wall, or a series of walls, will be more than enough to stop your yard from eroding away. If you have specific landscaped areas of your lawn that you want to protect, retaining walls can do that too.
Pavers are the Most Popular Retaining Wall Option
There are a few different material options you could construct a retaining wall with, but the most popular by far is pavers. Pavers can come in a variety of styles and designs, and can be made from stacked stone, bricks, or cinder blocks. No matter what the landscaping of your lawn looks like, you’ll be able to find some pavers to accent it.
Retaining Walls Need to Be Inspected
After your retaining wall has been installed, you should be able to go a few years without any issues, but it’s important to check on your retaining walls every now and then. Retaining walls have to withstand a lot of pressure, and hold up a lot of weight. Sometimes, all of this pressure can prove too much, and may start to push on the retaining walls. We recommend you give your retaining wall a thorough inspection at least once a year, so that any minor issues can be remedied before they turn into bigger ones.
You Can Incorporate Plants and Your Landscaping into Your Retaining Wall
Need a retaining wall to protect your lawn, but want to keep the landscaping that’s currently there, it could be possible. Your retaining wall is holding dirt, and dirt is what plants need to grow in, so you can put any plants right in the dirt being held up by your retaining wall.
