Hardscaping For Sloped Yards
When you invest in creating a beautiful landscape, you’re doing more than making your home or business more attractive. You’re increasing the value of your property. Recent studies show that you increase property values by as much as five to twelve percent by installing pleasant landscaping. As you begin to think about your landscape design, it’s easy to overlook the importance of having a strong retaining wall.
The Form and Function of a Retaining Wall
With more than ten years in the hardscaping business, the concrete craftsmen at Mr. Pavement will give you the expertise you’re looking for. A well-crafted retaining wall serves a number of important functions. It provides your landscape with a layer of protection against soil erosion and assists in protecting your property from water damage. The right wall correctly placed helps to change the slope of your yard, giving you more lawn to enjoy. While strength and function are undeniably important, the way a retaining wall adds to your curb appeal is an equally crucial factor to consider.
When you hear someone mention retaining walls, you may think of the plain, gray concrete blocks that were commonly used in years past. While they performed the function of holding soil in place, they weren’t always as attractive as you would have liked. Those days are gone.
Custom Colors and Finishes
If you’re trying to decide how you should build a wall, be sure to consider all your design possibilities. Concrete is a durable material that will provide you with a lifetime of strong protection. We can customize concrete to look like natural stone or wood, using a wide variety of colors to achieve the aesthetic you desire. You’re not limited to using only a straight line; you can add beautiful curves and different finishes to complement your landscape.
