Retaining Walls Add Structure and Stability to Your Landscaping
If you live on a lot that seems a little lopsided, you might be in need of a retaining wall. Retaining walls contribute to the stability of your Calgary landscaping by controlling drainage and adding support to hillsides. Poor drainage on an uneven plot of land can have serious repercussions, including causing significant damage to your concrete foundation during periods of freezing and thawing. In this sense, retaining walls are a necessity.
It can be difficult to use and take full advantage of your front or backyard if your house is built on a slope. Retaining walls have another practical purpose and function as they can be constructed into the side of a hill to create levelled terraces of usable space. It is essential that these walls are properly installed, using the correct subsurface, drainage material and retainment grid.
