What is a Retaining Wall?
A retaining wall refers to a barrier or structure that is designed to hold or “retain” soil on unnatural slopes. If the wall was taken away, the soil would fall onto the grass, sidewalk or whatever happens to be below. These walls are used in a wide variety of properties, and it is usually for aesthetic purposes, as they can greatly enhance the look of the property. They may also be used in areas where the landscape dictates a need for shaping when there is a roadway overpass or for farming on a hillside. Retaining walls may be made from rocks, boulders, poured concrete, treated timbers or concrete blocks.

There are several different types of retaining walls to choose from when planning your landscaping. Not all will work for every situation, but you can go over your options with your contractor to find the right one for you.
