Retaining walls play an important role in your property’s appearance, value, and performance. A retaining wall serves to keep soil and other landscaping in place, which prevents shifting, sliding, and loss due to gravity, weather, and settling. Retaining walls perform an important function, but they can also add to the aesthetic appeal of your landscaping and your yard. Your retaining wall design should complement your home or office exterior, as well as fit in with the look of your existing outdoor spaces.
