Retaining Walls

Retaining Walls: Beauty and Function in One.

Retaining walls serve multiple purposes, making them an ideal addition to any landscape. Whether you decide on rock, stone or wood, retaining walls add character and charm to your property, to be sure. But they can also delineate areas and zones, keep erosion at bay, provide safety measures and help achieve proper grades or levels. You can also use them to create beautiful terraces, raised planters or even a putting green in your yard. Here at Twelve Oaks Landscape, we offer a variety of retaining wall materials and will assist you in choosing the best option for your needs and budget.

Our team is highly trained in crafting walls that not only look great but that serve a function and last the test of time.

The Basics of Retaining Walls

A retaining wall is a structure that holds or retains soil and other elements behind it. From blocks and poured concrete to treated wood or rock, many materials can be used in their construction. This is really up to the personal preference of the homeowner as well as the existing style of the property. The material chosen, as well as how it is constructed, will also depend on what the wall will be retaining. Pools and driveways will require sturdier materials and closer attention to detail in construction. Retaining walls around a garden can take on more of an aesthetic factor. Also factored into the equation is whether the ground above or below is level or sloped, the height of the intended wall, and more.

Benefits of Retaining Walls

There are many reasons why our home and business owners choose to install retaining walls on their property. Check out these advantages of retaining walls:

  • Increased home value — Incorporating vertical elements in a stonescape adds visual appeal and depth.
  • Prevention of soil erosion — With no more steep slopes on your property, you do your part to prevent soil from washing away whenever it rains.
  • Added planting opportunities — When transforming a sloped landscape into one tiered with retaining walls, you now have brand new spaces for planting flowers and shrubs, spreading mulch and adding decorative accents.
  • Versatility — Some wall stones are constructed in such a way that their tongue-and-groove designs eliminate the need for mortar. Many come with tapered edges, which allows for either straight or curved walls.
