What Purpose do Retaining Walls Serve?
Retaining walls can be extremely beautiful, decorative additions to any home garden or landscaping. Additionally, the use retaining walls is not exclusive to just homes as these are commonly found in parks or around public landscaped areas as well.
The primary purpose of retaining walls is to cut short a slope and to create a vertical wall made of stone or concrete. This results in a larger, more usable flat space that can be used to build a patio or for a variety of other purposes. Additionally, good retaining walls will help control erosion as well. Therefore, when it rains, they ensure that the soil on the slope does not erode downward damaging plants or landscaping below. Therefore, retaining walls are perfect examples of blending practicality with beauty.
Types of Retaining Walls
There are many different kinds of retaining walls available, each having their own use and their own beauty. Typical retaining walls are made from stone slabs stacked vertically together. These can use either natural slabs or manufactured concrete or stone blocks. Some stacked retaining walls require mortar to secure the stones in place. While not as aesthetically pleasing, poured concrete can also be used to make vertical retaining walls. These are often the most durable when building large retaining walls.
Some retaining walls are angled rather than forming vertical walls. These are typically made of stones that are stacked with an overhang in each layer to create a sloping effect up hill. These sloping retaining walls take up more space than the vertical type, but can create a unique effect.
