Retaining Walls from Arden Fence, Deck, & Construction Company
The beautiful region of Western North Carolina has a significant amount of terrain changes. Retaining walls are an excellent solution for controlling these changes, managing erosion, and preventing flooding.
Not only are they functional, but retaining walls can also expand your usable outdoor space, enhancing your landscaping and increasing your property value!
Why Should I Consider a Retaining Wall?
The primary purpose of a retaining wall is to keep soil from moving. If you notice creeping soil or are tired of sweeping dirt from your sidewalk or driveway, a retaining wall will help contain that earth movement.
Retaining walls can also raise or lower living spaces such as lawns, patios, and courtyards. And elevated planting areas will have improved drainage and better plant growth!
No matter the function or height of the wall, it needs to be built with the proper structure, drainage, and materials. Both the strength and longevity of the wall are dependent upon the foundational elements.
Which Material Should I Choose for My Retaining Wall?
Our crews can build retaining walls in several different ways. We can work with basic concrete, either poured or in slabs. Many manufacturers also offer varying textures and designs of interlocking blocks and precast stones for more decorative retaining walls. After proper installation, these concrete walls will last for many generations.
Wood retaining walls blend into the environment and landscape well. They are also generally less expensive. Of course, any wood will eventually break down, but we construct our walls for durability and longevity, so they will likely last 20 years or more.
Masonry retaining walls are beautiful, but they generally take the most time and money to construct. They may be built with standard brick or cinder block, with or without a decorative cladding. They may also be built with materials that provide much more interest and beauty, such as flagstone, river rock, boulders, or any mix of these materials. We are happy to complete your masonry retaining wall with mortared stones of your choice or with dry-stacked stones or boulders. These stone retaining walls will last for many decades.
