Retaining walls are a great way to update the look of your landscape, but they also serve some other practical purposes, too. Rugged Slopes Hawaii of Honolulu installs retaining walls for residents of the island looking for stylish, eco-friendly, and long-lasting ways to protect their homes and property. Installing a retaining wall on your property will help prevent erosion and flooding.
If you get a lot of foot traffic or running water on your lawn, you’re going to experience issues with erosion from time to time. If your home is on a steep slope, erosion problems will be more pronounced. A retaining wall can be used to protect your lawn so water will not have a chance to flow freely across your property.
It will also discourage people from walking across certain sections of your property — a bonus if you’re trying to preserve specific plant life. If you live near a body of water, you’re probably used to your basement flooding. A retaining wall is an easy way to put a barrier between your home and flooding water. You could even place multiple retaining walls to ensure water doesn’t get near your home at all.
