Erosion vs. Retaining Walls
Having sloped land in your property can be challenging, especially in Florida. The rainy weather coupled with a sloped yard is a recipe for erosion soil issues. Luckily, retaining walls can help immensely with this. Retaining walls are a decorative way to add something completely functional to your property. They add usable space to your property, allow the soil in your garden beds to put even when it rains, and they even help prevent chemicals from your fertilizer from running off to nearby bodies of water. It’s time to learn more about the battle between erosion vs, retaining walls.
Stabilize soil and add usable space
Having a sloped property means that you have limited landscape design options. Many features like patios and garden beds cannot be placed on uneven land, mainly because of the erosion issues that are present. Adding a retaining wall will take care of the erosion issues by holding your soil in place. From there you have many landscaping design options for your new flattened space, like when you think twice about artificial turf. For example you can add a new patio, which can serve as the base for many different creative outdoor living area design. Once you lay a patio, you can add a table and chairs for guests, a fire feature, a water feature, and more.
Ensure your landscape with a retaining wall
A landscape bed is an excellent focal point for your property, showcasing your attractive flowers and stunning plants, depending on how trees change in seasons. However the mulch and soil in your landscape beds can get washed away by the bed repeatedly if your property is on a slope, forcing you to spend money to replace these important materials so that your plants can continue to thrive. A great solution to this problem is a raised planter. Now consider how can you win the fight between erosion vs. retaining walls.
