More than a wall, it's a work of art! A retaining wall is the perfect companion to your paving projects, landscape alterations, and for garden areas.
Practical Reasons to Install a Retaining Wall
Unlike other walls, a retaining wall “retains” soil in areas with significant slopes. If not stabilized, these areas will sooner or later slide down, damaging landscapes or damaging properties. Many areas with slopes are already built with something to hold back the soil like a net, special nails, and fences. These alternatives will do as temporary remedies, but they are not as durable as segmental retaining walls.
The materials used for retaining walls are extraordinarily strong like bricks, extra durable concrete, and natural stones. They are stacked together so as to resist pressure from the soil, the earth’s gravity, and the natural disturbances like heavy rain and earth quakes.
Due to their practical purposes, retaining walls become a necessary addition to a landscape, building driveways, walkways and sidewalks, and when beautifully separating an elevated residential or commercial area.
Retaining Wall’s Beautiful Purpose
Besides the serious purpose, retaining walls can also serve as a beautifying element for the entire area. Basically, they can be as beautiful as decorative walls. Tall retaining walls can be a mural-mosaic by combining beautiful colors and textures. Short retaining walls, on the other hand, can have the wavy edge instead of the typical straight top.
But unlike fences, installing segmental retaining walls is more complicated. You need the help of experienced and licensed professionals like Speedy Paving to get the job done right.
