When you choose to add a retaining wall to your property, you are sure to see an amazing enhancement of your landscape. If you are looking to make your outdoor living space a whole lot more functional, a stylish new wall may be the ideal defining addition for you. The wall can be designed to separate different sections of your property and ultimately increase the overall definition and layout of your property landscape.

Define Your Property Landscape with a Stylish Retaining Wall

If you are thinking of adding a half basketball court to your home and property, then a retaining wall is the ideal way to go. Clearing away and paving a section of your outdoor property will allow you to add a custom designed wall that will define the designated area and provide the setting needed to install a half basketball court where your children can spend hours enjoying the great outdoors. You can also make the parking area on your property larger with the installation of a retaining wall as well. Simply clear an area near to your driveway, install a stylish retaining wall as a new boundary and lo and behold you have more parking for family and visitors.

A Retaining Wall Can Provide More Seating

Do you have an outdoor patio that perhaps does not provide sufficient seating when you are entertaining family or friends? If so, you can choose to construct a stone retaining wall with a flat top surface adjacent to the existing patio that can provide additional seating. If need be, you can use the flat top surface as a serving area for food or drinks when you are entertaining your guests. You can choose to have a uniform look or, if you prefer, choose a different stone or an entirely different aesthetic design, that will complement your current patio. Whatever you choose, rest assured the perfectly designed wall can add not only aesthetic appeal but functionality as well.

To add to the look of your new retaining wall you may want to consider planters as a part of your outdoor living design. Permanent planters can provide you with a beautiful design when filled with seasonal plants or flowers. You will need to water your plants and flowers routinely which means a drainage system must be included with your wall design. You want to be sure that you do not destroy your plants by causing them to be waterlogged. Installing drainage with your new wall will ensure that your plants and flowers are properly maintained and can blossom season after season.

You may also find it beneficial to have a raised retaining wall that can be used for seasonal garden plantings. Planting vegetables in a typical garden can prove to be a physical challenge, especially with all that bending. A retaining wall with planters and drainage can make your garden time much easier and a good deal more enjoyable. A wall designed with a flat top surface provides sufficient space needed when picking and collecting vegetables from your garden.
