Retaining walls: what are the benefits?

The addition of a retaining wall will help to improve both the functionality and the overall appearance of your property.

Retaining walls have long been recommended by landscaping professionals when it comes to dealing with sloped and uneven terrain. Today, our team still believes that retaining walls are a top choice for Australian property owners.

Here at Amazing Fencing, we’ve been installing retaining walls for many years now—our team of experts have put together a summary of some of the many benefits of retaining walls.

Functionality Benefits:

One of the top benefits of a retaining wall is that it will provide structural support and hold soil in place, particularly for land that is especially uneven or sloped. You might think that your sloped land is unusable—but this doesn’t have to be the case! By installing a retaining wall, you’ll level out flat areas of your land and make it functional—perfect for planting and decorating.

A retaining wall will help to prevent soil corrosion, particularly if there aren’t many trees or shrubs present within your landscape which generally help to hold the soil in place.

Some property owners will also opt for a retaining wall as a means of flood control as they help to improve the flow of water and drainage when it rains.

Aesthetic Benefits:

As discussed above, retaining walls are great when it comes to improving the functionality of your outdoor space. A bonus of a retaining wall is that it will also help to improve the look of your property—this will likely lead to an increase in market value.

If your front or backyard is sloped, it doesn’t have to be an eyesore and a big waste of space—the installation of a retaining wall is the perfect solution to make good use of your land and create a neat and tidy space.
