Everyone dreams of a backyard oasis – watching sunsets, grilling out, or enjoying your family’s outdoor space. For those who live on a hill, however, their enjoyment of the outside can be limited by the slope and pitch of their backyard.
Is Your Backyard a Usable Outdoor Living Area?
If you have a sloped backyard you may have trouble fully utilizing your property. Your sloped backyard may pose a challenge to create an attractive and functional space that is safe for everyone. Unfortunately sloping yards tend to be subject to more erosion and runoff than a level yard, creating potential hazards with the changing landscape. Choosing a retaining wall will help stabilize your yard, reduce the occurrence of run-off and erosion, and allow for a flat area so that you can enjoy the space.
Turn That Sloped Outdoor Living Area into a Usable Space
A retaining wall holds sloping ground in place and prevents erosion. The design of the retaining wall can be terraced or singular, depending on the slope of your yard. Not only does a retaining wall prevent runoff, it also enhance the appearance of the outdoor living area and make your sloped backyard more functional.
A retaining wall can also add definition to your landscape with terraces or tiers. The design of a retaining wall can match the style of your home and your outdoor space. Take that backyard from a drab space that rarely gets used to a visually pleasing area to entertain your friends and family.
Incorporate Your Retaining Wall into Patio Design
Incorporating a retaining wall into the overall living space outside, such as part of the patio or a sitting area near a swimming pool, can help make the design more organic.
Retaining walls can really make your property pop. Whether you choose to have it blend into the regular landscaping or want it to be very visible, retaining walls add visual appeal to a home.
