Retaining Wall Stones: What exactly are These Walls and Their Key Features?

Retaining Wall Stones: What exactly are These Walls and Their Key Features?

A wall at our homes and office building are made of durable materials and serves its own purpose. A beautiful landscape is defined by several aspects, one of them being the retaining wall stones.

These are a type of retaining walls. These are designed to resist the lateral pressure of the soil. These are usually constructed when the ground elevation exceeds the angle of repose of the soil. These are used to support the soil laterally to be retained at different levels on either side. There are different retaining wall options, like the popular retaining wall stones or the masonry retaining wall.

Different Types of Retaining Walls

  • Concrete Block: This is one of the most common types of retaining walls that homeowners prefer. Since concrete has the inherent strength to withstand climatic changes and weather conditions, these are a good choice. Besides, it is not impacted by insects and rodents, thus adding to the structural stability of the walls.
  • Dry stack: These are a good choice if you are looking for a range free wall. These are built without mortar. They are built by locking together to create a solid structure. These are difficult to settle in the ground as they are not as rigid as the other retaining walls.

Why Adding a Retaining Wall is a Good Choice?

During any landscaping project or even at the time of construction, if you have a big yard, the contractor would always recommend the construction of retaining wall stone. The following section takes you through the key benefits of adding retaining wall at one go:

#1. Stability: The strength and stability that the retaining wall adds are one of the key reasons that you should add them to your place. It will help in stabilizing the land. If you have a sloppy, retaining walls will add stability to the ground.

#2. Reduces soil erosion: Soil erosion is a common problem many homeowners face. Although the person is not so abrupt, it’s a slow and steady process. Having a retaining wall in your house prevents the soil from eroding. These even slowly down the process of erosion, thereby preventing the shape of the landscape.

#3. Design: While the retaining wall stone has important functional roles in preventing soil erosion, decreasing the flow of water maintaining the aesthetics of the landscape part, it also helps in the designing process. It helps in creating a beautiful feature wall area in your yard. You can easily get them in your yard or garden or create a driveway.

#4. Boost curb appeal: Whenever you construct a house, the end objective is to make it look beautiful and add functional value to it. All this eventually impacts property value. Having retaining wall stones in your yard will give it a functional twist and make it look more elegant and sophisticated. If you are planning to sell your house and even if not and you want to rent your place, having a retaining wall in your house will add to the value and get a better price.

Nevertheless, these are considered a better option than wood but if you are looking for a sleek and stylish look, you must consider investing in the concrete retaining wall. In addition to soil erosion, prevention by retaining stone walls is also helpful in preventing the flow of water by decreasing its pace. This was the basic information about the retaining wall stones. You can contact the contractor and get to know the best option suited for you. However, there is a downside to it: concrete is prone to water seepage, so they are hard to repair.
