Should You Install A Retaining Wall?

Posted on: October 14, 2013

Hills and slopes can be difficult to landscape around. Between rain runoff and erosion, it can be difficult to maintain an attractive garden or landscape with a hill. But don’t get discouraged—it’s possible to cope with your slope by adding a retaining wall to your yard! Of course, retaining walls are great for flat areas, too.

Do you have a hill in your yard? Check out our retaining wall installation services!

Benefits of Retaining Walls

There are many benefits to installing a retaining wall in your Maryland yard. Some of these include:

  • Added Value to Your Home:  Retaining walls can add curb appeal to your home and yard by turning a hilly landscape into a beautiful garden area. Retaining walls don’t need a hill to work, they can be added to any area of your yard.
  • Low Maintenance: Once built, retaining walls require no maintenance to upkeep. Stone walls will be structurally sound and able to withstand the elements for years to come. Don’t miss out on a great long-term investment for your yard!
  • Terracing: If you have a hill, you can make a flat garden out of it with a retaining wall by turning it in to a terrace! We’ve already talked about it a little, but for hilly living areas, you can create a perfectly flat area for a great home garden! Terracing is great for flat areas, too. If your yard doesn’t drain well, an elevated garden with a retaining wall could be the perfect solution for you!

Retaining Wall Options Available

In addition to being useful and functional, retaining walls are also extremely attractive additions to your yard! Four Seasons uses two main types of retaining walls, modular and stone, along with several different types of materials. Our stone retaining walls are durable, flexible, and versatile and come in several different options. Stone retaining walls can be made of:

  • Flagstone (Pennsylvania bluestone)
  • Limestone
  • Rubble stone
  • Travertine
  • And more

If you’re looking for something a little more cost-effective, Four Seasons also offers modular block retaining walls. Modular retaining walls come in many different shapes, sizes, textures, and colors for a design unique to your home.
