If you’ve ever seen an expertly constructed retaining wall, you already know of their ability to add significant aesthetic value to homes with sloping landscapes. Beyond improving a property’s appearance, however, these walls also deliver a number of advantages to homeowners.
Here, the masonry experts from Rugged Slopes Hawaii discuss the major benefits of adding a retaining wall to your property. Serving Honolulu and the surrounding areas on Oahu, these professionals craft gorgeous concrete and stone walls for Hawaii homeowners. Here are some reasons to consider having one constructed in your yard:
- Durability: After the wall is built on your property, there’s little you’ll need to do in terms of upkeep. Because the walls are typically made from natural materials, they can withstand just about any weather conditions. If you’d like, you can always remove twigs or stubborn vines trying to wind their way along the wall. Otherwise, you can leave your wall untouched, and it will stand in place for years. Thus, retaining walls are a highly durable, low-maintenance investment for homeowners of all activity levels.
- Functionality: As long as they’re constructed by experienced masons, a retaining wall can support tons of weight. For sloped lawns, they provide an ideal way to clear up space, leaving more room for gardening, playing, and entertaining. They also make the yard easier to navigate. You can even have your wall constructed strategically to create designated spaces for gardens, pathways, and steps.
- Eco-Friendly: Environmentally conscious homeowners will be happy to discover retaining walls are an eco-friendly landscaping option. Stone and rock walls use far less concrete than traditional walls. They also prevent landscape damage by reducing water runoff after storms. Finally, their unique construction style is minimally disruptive to your property’s natural vegetation.
