Is your backyard hilly or is it somewhat limited by sloped terrain? If such is the case with your home and property, a stylish retaining wall can transform those slopes and hills into a usable flat area that is both attractive and functional. Whether you are looking to enhance your property or actually gain space, stylish outdoor features can help you do just that.

Turn Your Backyard into a Beautiful Outdoor Space with Stylish Designs

We take tremendous pride in our superior products, materials and services and strive to deliver designs that will simply not be matched by any of our competitors.

One design idea we want to share is that of creating a beautiful backyard terrace. A terrace allows you ample space to place patio furniture or other outdoor furniture adding to your outdoor experience. In conjunction with a wooden deck or a deck made of stone pavers, a retaining wall is the ideal structure you need. These sturdy walls can hold back sand and soil while eliminating any hilly area or slope you may have. The installation of a wall will provide you with the level surface needed to add to the look and feel of your outdoor space. A retaining wall brings out the overall design of a new terrace and the materials used for your newly designed wall can be used throughout your entire property landscaping to bring forth an attractive and cohesive design and look.

Yet another wall design idea is specific to those properties that have sloped garden areas. A sloped garden area presents with many challenges from water run-off to soil erosion. Plants, flowers and vegetables planted in a sloped garden often times do not thrive because of the challenging layout and conditions of the land. However, when you choose to install a stylish, short retaining wall you can create the ideal space for gardening. The perfectly designed wall can easily transform these sloped areas into the ideal raised garden bed that will allow you to enjoy a wide range of plants and flowers. There is so much time and energy that goes into planting and maintaining any garden. With that said, the perfect solution to your sloped garden is the installation of a sturdy, stylish retaining wall.

What Materials Are Best for Constructing Retaining Walls?

At Harpeth Valley Hardscapes we pride ourselves on our high customer service and customer satisfaction ratings. We are always on hand to answer questions and discuss ideas and concerns of all of our clients. We want our clients to understand not only the value of a stylish retaining wall and its benefits, but how they are constructed and the materials typically used.

Stone is by far the most popular material used in the construction of these very functional walls. Since stone is very durable and makes stacking quite easy, it tends to be the most favored materials by homeowners for the construction of stylish walls. Natural stone as well as bricks are popular materials used in the design and construction of retaining walls. Wood timbers are yet another popular material and indeed a whole lot less expensive than stone. Easy to install, wood walls are secured with rebar and other hardware making them sturdy and long lasting.
