For many homeowners, in order to preserve their property from ongoing soil erosion, the installation of a retaining wall is an absolute must do. Though a properly constructed wall can indeed help with soil erosion, what many individuals don’t realize that it can also add style, charm and beauty to your property and landscape.




A retaining wall can help to enhance both the aesthetic appeal and value of your home and property in many ways. Here at Harpeth Valley Hardscapes our dedicated team wants to take this time to educate our clients on some of the many uses and benefits of a stylish retaining wall.


  • Additional Outdoor Seating – These stylish walls offer homeowners an ideal option for creating additional seating outdoors. Low walls are typically a common place for individuals to sit whether by the pool or even nearby to the patio. In addition, when you choose to install your new wall near to a fire pit, you not only create additional seating, but make it easier to host family and friends at a fall evening gathering and sit comfortably by the fire.
  • A Little Safe Haven or Quiet Getaway – By utilizing topography, a newly installed retaining wall can create a unique outdoor space where you can escape to enjoy a quiet cup of coffee or even coffee with a friend. With the natural tiers, a newly installed wall can certainly provide an added outdoor space that you have long dreamed of. You can even add specialized elements to your wall that can add style, appeal and even more value to your home and property.
  • Easy to Access Tiered Garden Beds for Flowers – Keeping lovely bushes and flowers as part of your landscape can certainly give your home a warm, stylish look. However, having to prune all those favorite flowers and bushes can be quite a struggle for your back. Installing a new retaining wall can certainly alleviate this problem by affording you a flower bed that is much easier to reach and to take care of all the while blending in nicely with your existing property design and décor.
  • An Outdoor Grilling Station or Kitchen – With a bit of creativity you can integrate a food prep space and a grill to your existing wall, and transform it into a unique cooking and dining area. An outdoor kitchen built right into your retaining wall, leaves a whole lot more room for family and friends to gather, chit chat, and socialize when you host all those backyard parties and gatherings.
