Designing Your Retaining Wall

Retaining walls fill an important function, but they can also add to the aesthetic appeal of your landscaping and your yard. Your retaining wall design should complement your home or office exterior, as well as fit in with the look of your existing outdoor spaces.

  • Before you consider aesthetics, you will need to first ensure your retaining wall serves its intended purpose. Your hard scrapers will examine the slope and condition of your property, as well as any landscaping or other features you plan to add, to design a retaining wall that will effectively keep the soil of your property in place and allow adequate drainage of rainwater and snow runoff.
  • Once the functional design of your retaining wall is complete, consider how you want it to fit in with your existing yard, landscaping, and building. Retaining walls can double as planters, landscaping beds, benches, steps, or even as part of outdoor living space such as a patio, deck, or kitchen.
  • The look of your retaining wall should also complement the look of your home or office’s exterior. A retaining wall can be built from a variety of materials and in any style imaginable to mesh with your property’s other architectural and decorative features.
