In general, retaining walls are used to “retain” soil or other materials into a desired shape or slope. Many homeowners add retaining walls to increase overall curb appeal or to add more functionality to a sloped back lawn. Building a sturdy retaining wall is also beneficial for controlling erosion.
Retaining walls can be created using a variety of materials; however, concrete retaining walls are stronger, hold their form better, and last longer than other materials like timber and stones. Concrete can also be designed and manipulated to add unique characteristics to reflect the overall style of home and business owners.
