Benefits of a Retaining Wall for Your Landscaping

If you've got a home at the Lake, you know the struggles of landscaping in the "Ozarks". When landscaping at the Lake of the Ozarks, dealing with steep slopes and challenging grades is a given. With that comes erosion concerns and planting difficulties. The solution is building a retaining wall. Paradise Landscaping wants to share with you the many benefits of hiring us to implement a retaining wall in your Lake of the Ozarks landscaping!

What is a Retaining Wall?

A retaining wall is a wall or system of walls that holds back earth and water. Retaining walls address a series of perennial challenges by stopping erosion and creating functional space on slopes for planting. Drainage systems built within retaining walls can manage stormwater and reduce erosion, and the retaining wall structure creates terracing and levels of landscape beds. 

Creates Beauty and Functionality

Retaining walls can also create a high-impact entrance, providing terracing for planting flowers while establishing a sort of gateway to the property. Beauty and functionality collide for a unique and eye-catching experience. Gardening and attractive landscaping will complement your retaining wall and could be considered the most striking feature of your outdoor space, so take advantage of what a retaining wall can offer. Even steps can even be added to your retaining wall, and you’ll benefit from extra structural strength, function and visual interest. And if you consider adding low voltage lights, the wall can have a more inviting appearance.

Provides More Usable Space

In addition to being attractive and useful, they can add value to your home or business and often can be constructed from high quality materials for a very reasonable price. Retaining walls can increase your home's value, are durable and long-lasting, can be earth-friendly, and come in a wide range of choices. Because of the hilly landscaping at the Lake of the Ozarks significant portions of a property could be positioned on land that is not accessible or safe. Retaining walls can work in conjunction with patios and walkways to create gathering spaces and more usable space on a property.

Protects the Land

Erosion is a real problem for a number of reasons. For one, the soil and its contents (including fertilizers) can wash down into storm water sewers and stream into our waterways. Second, erosion can present safety concerns on steep slopes where rushing water may actually impede traffic or even destroy the land. Retaining walls keep soil and water in place and become even more beneficial when a drainage system is installed as part of the wall structure.

Retainer walls can be a great addition to any yard space due to the multiple functions they can perform. Not only can they protect your yard from erosion, but also they can make your yard more functional and appealing for everyday use.
