Top 3 Benefits Of A Professionally Built Retaining Wall

Retaining wall

When a homeowner decides to have artificial grass installed, the benefits are obvious: a beautiful lawn without the ongoing struggles of upkeep. However, when property owners hear they need retaining walls the advantages don't seem as apparent. In fact, some customers panic because they have a preconceived notion as to what a functional wall will look like on their property. The good news is that when a concrete wall is built by an industry professional who cares about what they do, it can be as beneficial as that artificial grass. At New Image Construction Inc., we're outdoor living specialists who care about taking good care of our customers. That means putting us all into everything that we do, including creating beautiful hardscapes, like walls, even if their purpose is functional.

Understanding Retaining Walls

The purpose of a retaining wall is to hold back soil; hence the term retaining. Although it sounds simple enough, the design has to be precise and accurate, making this a complex task. However, there's no reason to settle for a drab-looking wall just because it has to serve a purpose.

Some of the biggest perks of having a well-built retaining wall:

  • Avoid Erosion - Erosion can do severe damage to your property or even your home, so it must be managed. Deterioration can happen naturally with gravity or as a result of water and improper drainage.
  • Improve Drainage - A retaining wall is an ideal resource for helping to improve drainage or correct an existing drainage problem. Left unchecked, improper drainage can damage your property or send water toward the foundation of your home instead of away from it.
  • Correct a Slope / Level the Ground - If your yard has issues with being level, it's impossible to create even ground without using a method of retention for the soil. A retaining wall is the perfect solution for evening out the uneven spots and keeping it that way, plus it enables you to add landscaping or have an area for recreational sport.
