Retaining walls are a beautiful and functional property investment. Retaining walls are structures that hold or retain the soil behind it. Walls are a common landscape element in western Pennsylvania that create and form beautiful outdoor living spaces.
Retention walls separate and enclose designated areas of your property and work with your yard’s natural surroundings. They are designed to complement other landscaping features, such as mulch, plants, trees, flowers, and shrubs. Retaining walls can solve terrain problems and allow us to carve out functional outdoor spaces. Walls also define the landscape and add to the theme and feel of your outdoor environment.
While planning for your retaining wall installation in the south hills:
Our area has many properties that are sloped so retaining walls are often used to tame grades terracing and preventing erosion around your driveway, walkways, and backyard.
We begin by observing the details. Walls can add creative curves and create interest in an otherwise boring area of your outdoor space. We plan and utilize your existing elements to complement and contrast with each other.
Drainage is a big consideration. A retaining wall that has a slope will require additional drainage at the base. Components of this include: gravel and fabric, along with drain pipe. Dream Greener’s experts then design a solid base, planning for drainage and prioritizing support. We also plan for the future, taking into consideration how the passage of time will affect your design.
Finally we collaborate with you to use the best materials. Walls can be made from a variety of materials to evoke different feelings and show a variety of styles.
Factors to consider when choosing the material for your wall include: longevity, use and budget.
