Retaining walls are a great way to not only resist the pressure of soil or rocks, but they also add visual appeal to any landscaping scene. Retaining walls are essentially structures designed to go against the lateral pressure that soil or other material has. A retaining wall counters this pressure and keeps the soil or material in place and is usually met with a level surface on the other side.
While there are many types of retaining walls, they all tend to add to the visual appeal of any landscaping that a home or business may have. The examples shown below display both the retaining features of the wall as well as the visual appeal that each retaining wall adds either through color, brick type, or other features.
As seen through these pictures, there are many materials and colors that retaining walls can be created with. All of them add to the visual appeal of the landscaping scheme in each photo. Overall, retaining walls serve as a double positive as they will also separate two surfaces of your choosing. If you have any needs in this area, do not hesitate to call Hanson Landscape today!
