Retaining Walls Can Be A Great Landscape Addition

Retaining walls are very practical structural components in any construction project. They can also be a great landscape addition for uneven areas that you want to make level or for open areas that you want to enclose. These garden or backyard wall additions allow you to create a beautifully landscaped and easy to maintain area that will not only beautify your home, but also add to its resale value, should you decide to sell the property in the future.

Retaining walls are typically made using interlocking concrete blocks. They require no mortar, which makes them very easy to install. They rely on their weight to secure the structure and most systems don't require a rebar or mortar reinforcement system. Because of this, however, interlocking retaining walls are more appropriate to use for areas that require low walls. Aside from the weight of the blocks, retaining walls are very easy to assemble and use. They are akin to children's blocks, which you can easily dismantle and change if the wall you have created simply don't fit the design you envisioned for your backyard or garden landscape.

This kind of terraced wall system is an excellent addition to a landscape, creating a beautiful stepped slope that is a lot safer and more pleasant to look at than a single tall wall. Retaining walls create great landscaping and planting opportunities and even helps control erosion.

Digging a trench is one of the first steps to building a retaining wall. Block retaining walls require a level foundation so that the blocks can be securely stacked on top of each other.
