Benefits of Installing a Retaining Wall

A retaining wall is a functional hardscape installment that serves many practical and aesthetic purposes.

Bay Area hardscape designers often integrate retaining wall features in their projects both from necessity and for the interest they add. Benefits to including a retaining wall in your landscaping include:

hardscaping retaining wall pros

  • Soil erosion and shift prevention. Gravity, water, and settling can cause the earth to slide into the property or against the home. This shift can ruin existing landscaping or cause foundation damage. A retaining wall stops this erosion and protects your home and yard.
  • Flood damage protection. Heavy rains will wash away top soil and create runnels in your yard. Retaining walls manage this runoff to keep the soil in place and your yard smooth.
  • Creation of leveled areas. Steeply graded yards benefit from the addition of retaining walls that create flat areas for living spaces, playgrounds and gardens. Bay Area hardscape companies understand that even yards with little slope can be enhanced with a retaining wall.
  • Improved aesthetics and use. Retaining walls can be key landscape elements as focal points, benches, planters or steps. They can be integrated into decks and outdoor kitchens to seamlessly protect your home from erosion while adding to its functionality and beauty.
