A retaining wall
is a great landscaping feature that can help frame and shape a property and provide multiple benefits as well. Many different types of properties have retaining walls such as businesses, schools and homes. You may not even realize the great benefits a retaining wall offers, as they are built to naturally fit into a property. Retaining walls are not only built for looks, they also serve a very fundamental purpose, expanding your useable outdoor living space. When a retaining wall is built correctly, it will be able to provide support for architectural structures on your property like the driveways or sheds and prevent the land under them from sliding downhill. The wall helps to counteract the gravitational force of a hill, helping to make sure the soil beneath them is stable.
