What is a retaining wall?
A retaining wall is a structure that holds back soil. It gives you the opportunity to put a path on a slope, keep a steep part of your yard from crumbling away, or even place a stone patio on a hillside.
At Baisley Tree and Landscape, we’ve been building retaining walls for years. We can help you decide if a retaining wall makes sense in your landscape plans.
These walls, usually made of stone, brick, or block, are practical and beautiful. For example, if you have a slight slope going from the front of your house to the back in an area where you want steps, a retaining wall acts as a divide between the two areas, and steps are set into the wall.
Another use for a retaining wall could be if your property slopes to the street and you have a hard time mowing the lawn. A wall levels the main property, and leaves a level area at its foot, both easier to mow.
If you need a retaining wall to combat erosion, Baisley Tree and Landscape will make sure proper drainage is incorporated into the wall.
