Retaining walls are structures built to hold back soil, rock, or other materials, preventing erosion and landslides. In areas like ours, many homes are located on hillsides, and retaining walls are essential to maintaining the stability of the land. They also provide an attractive backdrop for garden beds and can be used to create terraced landscapes.
Retaining walls can be made from a variety of materials, including stone, brick, concrete, or wood. The material you choose will depend on the style of your home and the look you are trying to achieve. For example, we chose wooden retaining walls for this project to give a warm, inviting look.
