THE PRIMARY FUNCTION OF A RETAINING WALL
If your home property has a natural terrain that does not allow you to define and design a specific portion of your landscape, the installation of a retaining wall can most assuredly help you to accomplish that which you are proposing to do. A well-designed stylish wall can accomplish a number of things, including protecting the soil on your property from eroding and helping to eliminate the harmful effects a seasonal storm can cause to your home landscape and property.
Further a properly designed retaining wall that is added to an outdoor fireplace, kitchen or patio can easily provide additional seating for your guests and can even serve as a privacy barrier for your outdoor living space.
SOME CREATIVE IDEAS FOR RETAINING WALLS
There are a number of creative uses for the installation of these specialized walls, including, but not limited to the following.
- · A Stylish Tiered Wall – A tiered wall of stone affords you the opportunity to enjoy planting a number of items that you were never able to plant because of lack of space. Designing multiple tiers will provide adequate space for those with a green thumb to plant flowers, shrubs, or any other plantings they choose that can add charm and style to your landscape during the spring, summer and fall months. A tiered wall has a look and feel all its own and is a tremendous way to add both style and functionality to your backyard space.
- · A Retaining Wall for a Backyard Hill – If your property consists of a hill that poses all sorts of challenges to you year-round, you may want to think about adding a retaining wall at the very base of the hill to provide additional space for any other outdoor structure or feature. When you choose to work with the professionals here at Harpeth Valley Hardscapes, together we can select the proper brick or stone for your wall. Proper materials will not only add style to your landscape but also add to the existing colors and décor of your outdoor living space. Our team may also suggest stone steps that can provide you with
- access to the upper portion of the hilled area that can be used for a number of other outdoor purposes such as a garden.
- · An Eco-Friendly Wall – The materials used for the design and creation of a retaining wall are often times natural and while preventing soil erosion on your property can help to protect the environment as well. Many walls are not only durable, but are constructed with recycled materials that serve to add beauty, style and class to your outdoor living space all the while benefiting the environment as well.
