protect your land with retaining walls
In the Austin area, retaining wall installation on your property by a professional hardscaping services company is often a good idea thanks to the dry, desert soil. A concrete retaining wall can help stop soil erosion and sinkholes from forming by helping redirect water and hold back slope slides. Retaining wall landscaping is often installed to prevent a higher slope of ground from collapsing onto a lower level. Not only does this provide protection from erosion and practical drain functionality, garden retaining walls are often used to create a terraced yard as well, protecting your plants and landscape designs.

What Kind of Retaining Wall Should You Use?

There are many different types of garden retaining walls available. In fact, any kind of material that is strong enough to prop up soil can be used as the building block for a retaining wall. While many people opt for the affordable but durable concrete retaining wall, many landscapers choose stacked limestone or gabion for the aesthetic. There are even retaining walls on the market made of steel plate and wood. At the end of the day, the type you choose depends on what purpose you need the wall to serve, as well as your own personal taste. Consult with your retaining wall contractors to see what material will work best on your land.

Hill and Slope Solution

Thanks to Austin’s rolling hills and hard, limestone soil, landscaping can become a bit of a challenge. If your house sits on a slope, it can be hard to keep water and excess soil from building up in the lowest areas of your yard. If your home sits at the bottom of a slope, this can eventually damage your home’s foundation. With retaining walls, you can prolong the life of your landscaping services, and your foundation, so you don’t have to worry about the upkeep.

Curb Appeal

Ditch the boring ground level garden beds. Gardening retaining walls will completely elevate the look of your lawn. Brighten up your whole yard in an elegant, organized fashion.

Functional Space

Terracing can divide your yard into areas specifically designed for certain functions. Section off your outdoor cooking area from the open grass where the kids run around. Create a cozy corner with outdoor furniture and a fireplace, seperate from the rest of the yard. This will make your yard seem even larger and create a more private experience.
